Remember this one? “Who wears short shorts? We wear short shorts. If you dare wear short shorts, Nair for short shorts.”
Sorry, had to do it. You see, every time I see a pair of cute short shorts, this is all that goes through my head. Do they still make Nair? Did it ever really work?
But I digress…
Short shorts are aplenty. And, it’s easy to get them waaay too short. This trend is cute, but please make sure your inseam is at least 2″ (and I caution that most will need 3″). Think of the kids…and me. We don’t need to see your bare booty sticking out!
But, if you’ve got the sticks, by all means ride this fashion wave. There are so many cute shorts out there at all price points.

J. Crew makes shorts in all lengths, but the shortest is the 3″. They come in every color in the rainbow.
These by Lilly Pulitzer are 3″ as well. Do you see that by even going to 2″ you are running perilously close to showing some should-never-been-seen-in-public parts? I repeat, do not go shorter than 2″ and please consider that perhaps you need 3″!
These are made by Kendall K and are at Dress & Dwell in New Albany.
These are available at Circe, made by Amanda Uprichard and retail for $120.
These basic short shorts, the Elyssa short by Joie, are available at locally Blink Boutique, on sale for $60. They also carry these shorts in black too.
Great prints always from Milly, available at Clodhoppers for $210.
More great floral patterns and a drawstring waist from Haute Hippie.
The ultimate in bravery: a horizontal stripe and a less than 3″ inseam.
These metallic shorts really speak to me; so do her shoes.
Don’t be afraid of color. The shorts are the outfit here, paired with a simple white tee and some great shoes.
Feeling a little sparkly? We will end with some sequins. These are the Mermaid Shorts from Topshop, available in white or green.
These have a 4″ inseam for longer legs or those wanting a teeny bit more coverage!
Off to go try Nair again, for the first time since 1990.
