MIKE & CHRIS Ritter Japanese Denim Cargo Micro Short. Available at SINGER22.
Whoever told you that you can’t and shouldn’t be wearing shorts this summer must live in Siberia or something. If you’re wise about it, anybody can wear denim shorts at any age, and not look silly. Remember: 50 is the new 40; 40 is the new 30; and so on. With some proper preparations, you’ll be able to tastefully rock your denim look and rack up style points from your peers. Remember, if you have bumps and veins you’d rather hide, go longer with the denim. Don’t try to hide them with stockings or leggings.
Try These Tips:
1) Groom your legs: shave, exfoliate, lubricate. Be sure to apply moisturizer on your legs immediately after patting them dry with a towel. It helps if you’re just coming out of a mild to hot shower. This will help with absorption.
2) Fake bake, if necessary. If not, try rubbing some baby oil down the front of your legs (from below the knees down to just above the feet). Carefully apply concealer (yes, makeup!) on bruises and scabs.
3) If all else fails, get your legs groomed professionally, and don’t forget the pedicure! Select a light color, which makes your feet appear tanner. Neutral, muted tones does the trick.
4) Pair your denim shorts with some fantastic pair of shoes.

When you’re supermodel Gisele Bundchen fashion labels jump at the chance to get you in their clothes, and they’re willing to make some alterations when needed. While visiting with Miss Me at MAGIC Marketplace, the TalkingShopping gals were interested to learn that a pair of their jeans had caught Gisele’s eye and since she just had to have them, they were more than willing to custom cut Gisele her very own pair. According to Sarah Pollack, a rep for Miss Me, Gisele needed just a few extra inches in length thanks to her very long legs. Check out the video below to see the jeans she can’t wait to get her hands on. The best part is that they’re less than $100!
