Bum shorts are very short shorts women wear to flaunt their legs and thighs. Depending on the length, these shorts also show a bit of the bum. They are sexually appealing and quite revealing. 

They can be high-rise or low-rise, loose or tight-fitting with different designs or prints. Furthermore, they mostly come in fabrics such as denim, leather, crepe, chinos, silk, chiffon, etc. It all depends on your style and preferences.

For instance, you can have a two-piece bum short ensemble that comes with a blazer. You can as well have one as lingerie or jeans.  These outfits are versatile but are strictly FOR  casual or smart casual dress codes, depending on how you style them.

And as such, don’t wear these shorts to the office unless you run your company and set the rules.

How to Wear Bum Shorts and Exude Class

Although bum shorts outfits show much skin, they exude class so long as you style them right.

How? You ask. In the following ways: 

1. Layer with an Outerwear

This works in two ways:

  • Layer with a long outerwear
  • Layer with a short one

If you’re not comfortable showing off your thighs and legs or your bum short is too short, go for the first option. This includes outfits like kimonos, coats, dusters, or button-up dresses.

You can leave the buttons unfastened in front while it shields your behind from the prying eyes of people. Furthermore, this helps to add more accents and proportions to your look.

For the second option, blazers, short denim jackets, shirts,  sweaters, cardigans, etc., come in handy. If you’re comfortable flaunting your back view, go ahead and layer with these options.

2. Coordinate Your Look

If your shorts are denim, pair them with a denim jacket. If it comes with a top or blazer made with the same fabric or prints, wear them together.

Accessorizing Your Bum Shorts

As we earlier established, bum shorts are statement outfits on their own. And as such, your accessories should be toned down for your shorts to be the focus of attention.

But if you don’t care about that, by all means, feel free to accessorize as you wish.

Wear a hat or any headwear for women that suit your outfit. Grab on your sneakers, stiletto, knee-high boots. Add long or short necklaces with your earrings and other jewelry.

Mix colors and prints the right way.

And while at this, keep your makeup muted so the rest of your outfit shine.

Writing has always been a part of me. From writing stories as a young child to studying Communication Arts in the university, it has always been more than a medium of expression to me.

And then one day, I found myself toeing the path of an entrepreneur and becoming a fashion enthusiast. This made me develop an interest in content marketing and copywriting which I've been chasing alongside my fashion career.

That aside, when I'm not sharing style articles, selling with stories, or creating fashion-forward pieces for Ria Kosher, you'll find me telling wild stories that always come with a twist.
