Omiru Poll Results: Shorts are In!

Omiru Shorts Poll Result

ShortsWe asked: Are Shorts In or Out?

You said: Bring em on!  A whopping 77% of you are loving this warm-weather favorite.  Not since we asked about Nautical fashion did we see such an overwhelming vote of approval.  Only 11% believe shorts are out, and only 12% think they’re on the way out.

Omiru’s take:
We’ve been loving the variety of silhouettes out there–from the short shorts to the more forgiving knee-length styles.  A few figure flattery tips from us to you:

  • Long waisted (e.g. short legs): Try shorter length shorts to give your legs as much length as possible.  On a casual day, pair these shorts with a pair of wedge sandals.
  • Short-waisted (e.g. long legs): Look for low-rise styles that give you the appearance of a longer torso.
  • Petite: Your best bet is a long short (ha) that hits you right above your knee.  Look for shorts with a slim fit–avoid wide legged styles. 
  • Full Derrière: Styles with medium sized back pockets minimize the size of your rear.  Try pairing a dark colored short with a lighter colored and/or patterned top for best results!

Next Question: We’re (still) seeing those Victorian-inspired high-necked blouses everywhere.  Tell us, what do you
think about Victorian-inspired blouses?  Are they In, or are they Out?  Cast your vote on

Shopping Guide: Tara Jarmon Target Collection

Target has switched gears from England to France by saying goodbye to British designer Luella Bartley and saying bonjour to Canadian born French designer Tara Jarmon. Tara’s très chic flirty French designs landed in Target stores at the beginning of May and will be followed by designs from fellow French designer Sophie Albou’s label Paul & Joe. The latter will feature a collection of women’s pants, tops, jackets, and more, with prices ranging from $7.99 to $149. 

Although Tara’s entire collection for Target is affordable AND wearable, we highlight for you the ones we would want to be in if we were stranded on the Eiffel Tower: 

 Best Dress: ‘Cause every girl needs a LBD.
