Caribbean Girl Body issue no.1 The mystery of the vanishing booty
You once had a booty — when you were five— but as you hit adolescence somehow Kim Kardashian up and stole your birthright and now you, my Caribbean goddess, are forced to exist in an upside down world where formerly super-slender, Trini-Indian Nicky Minaj and Armenian/ American Kim Kardashian have more booty than you. How do you fix this slight by the hand of God? Well, you don’t, not unless you are pulling out the Booty Pop panties and I don’t have to tell you how ridiculous those are do I?
Pros: Those super-short cut-up-to-your-waist shorts won’t give you a wedgie, won’t leave your backside dangerously exposed, in fact, they’ll look super on you!
Where to wear them: Any pre-Carnival, or Crop Over, or other festival event , wear them to go sailing, to hang out with your honey at the beach, get several pairs and wear them to every single rally event on the calendar.
What to pair them with: Light long sleeved shirts with the sleeves rolled up. Sexy sandals or funky wedges are perfect with this look but avoid flip flops if you want to look a wee bit more stylish than a 14 year-old at Accra. Keep the top simple and covered if you are going that bare on the bottom otherwise you run the risk of looking underdressed. A statement necklace wouldn’t go amiss here either.
Next week, Thighs and what to do about them.
