A Question Of ProportionPosted: June 7, 2013
Just a simple outfit to end the week. I want to wear shorts more often in the summer, but I tend to reach for a long-sleeved shirt (or at least 3/4 length) when I’m wearing shorts, and in the summer that’s just not practical. For some reason I find pairing a short-sleeved shirt with shorts kind of… awkward-looking. I’ve tried it a few times before, and the proportion always looks off to me. I think the long-sleeved shirt balances out the shorts much better. And don’t even get me start on sleeveless shirt with shorts. Others can pull it off, but on me it will looks like I forget to put on proper clothes. Is it because of how my body is shaped, or is it entirely in my head?
