We’ve all heard of the peep toe but in the summertime we like to show more than our pedicure. Rompers, shorts, skirts, and dresses let us explore the designs that expose a little skin. Even the fellas give some calf action with cargo shorts and low top kicks.

The most important rule of showing leg is to make sure your fit does just that, fits! Ladies with a little more cushion down low must be careful not to cross the line between fashionable and inappropriate. If you are like me and have dimples in places other than your face, you need not let the world see. Cover those short shorts with a nice, long overlay. Likewise if you have super slim legs show them off in shorts or a cute minidress but leave the rompers alone. High-waisted shorts and rompers require filling in the rear region.

Guys have a few less options. Khaki, denim, camouflage shorts are the basics but it’s all about the length. I am a fan of reaching just below the knee but I know times have changed and fellas are rocking shorter shorts. It’s not hard to gauge if your shorts are the right fit for you.

Take a look at these examples below:
