hey would like honest opinions & thoughts

i would like to wears shorts this summer since i’ve never worn them in my 18yrs of living but i’m kind of worried about the reaction i’ll get. when a black girl wears shorts i’ve notice other black girls judge saying “y she trying so hard” but when a white walks by w/ the same shorts its now cute.

i wont get offended by anyones honesty. but was just wondering wat do u guys think of black girls wearing shorts

i don’t think your skin colour matters. if you think something looks good on you with your body shape WEAR IT! you only have one life to live so enjoy it : ) i wear short shorts all the time though i would prefer some longer ones. i have runner thighs though so no model skinny legs here.

i wear shorts all the time when it’s warm and i don’t have model legs.
and i think that shorts, especially from light denim, looks great on black girls!

Im black& I dont think your color matters either. I think It depends on how you wear them, like make sure it’s in a way were your not showing to much skin because your already showing your legs. I think that’s why people say they’re trying to hard, because they don’t know how to balance the coverage of skin from sexy& chic, to trashy& tacky.

Colour shouldn’t matter, BUT if you do have the stereotypical black girl badonkadonk, TOO short may not flatter it and it MAY turn out a little skimpier than you’d like it to be. if anything, maybe try an inch or two length away from where the bum ends so it covers up, but you still have good leg showing. And if its still a bit of a big move for you, you can always do a fun pair of tights or leggings to add personality. Hope it helps XD

I love dark skin with shorts, especially white denim or light khaki. And I’ve seen loads of girls pull it off with class and finesse. It’s all about balance, like comments before me have mentioned.

I personally don’t like wearing short shorts. I feel they are not appropriate for my age (18) or occupation and I find them impractical and unflattering (just on me personally). While I love my body, I know that I have pretty heavy thighs, so slightly longer shorts or more slimming.

Try getting some inspiration from my favorite black supermodel, Jourdan Dunn. She rocks short shorts all the time, and still has enough class to walk for Prada!

Love shorts shorts and it’s even better for you that you don’t have to tan ;) I really don’t like to see very pale legs in shorts, but that’s just my opinion

I don’t think skin tone matters. I wear shorts but not the ones that are so short your butt hangs out when you walk. I guess its even socially acceptable for half your butt to be hanging out of your shorts nowadays judging from how many people wear shorts that ARE that short. Anyway, the point is short shorts are fine as long as your butt doesn’t stick out.

Think it just depends on how you wear it! Black people can have great shorts while white have their butt haning out. Too bad people think so stereotypical.
Just shop around and find shorts that look great on you! And if you do look great then no one can make a justified comment about it!
