Like it or not, the season for sunny days, beach vacations and Southern humidity has arrived, and we simply cannot escape wearing shorts. So, we’ve rounded up 18 options that you’ll actually want to wear. From beachy, linen styles and go-to denim favorites to the dressy shorts you’ll see all of the fashionistas rocking throughout this season, this list only features shorts that will keep you comfortable and bring out your inner confidence. They’re fashionable enough to stay on-trend with the current styles, yet conservative enough to make sure you’re not showing too much skin. It’s time to change your mind about shorts — here are 18 flattering options for any woman!
BEACHY, VACATION STYLES
Whether you’re jetting off on a tropical vacation or taking the kiddos to the pool, a light and comfortable pair of shorts is a fantastic, versatile addition to your wardrobe. In this case, we suggest linen fabrics as they’ll keep you cool and comfy and won’t get damaged by sand, sun or water. These lounge-y options can also be dressed up with a short sleeved button up and statement sandals for a shopping day or exploring the neighboring beach town. Plus, these simple shorts are a great way to take advantage of the season’s stripe trend!
Every woman needs a pair of flattering denim shorts in her spring and summer wardrobe, but finding the right pair is much easier said than done. We’re here to help! Here are six different options, in varying washes and lengths, for each style preference and body type. This season, we’re seeing a ton of cuffed denim, which reflects the winter season’s trend of unique jean hems. Plus, Bermuda shorts are back – and we couldn’t be happier! These are a fantastic option for those not keen on showing off their thighs (we’re right there with ya). Find the pair that suits you best, and style them with any top or shoe in your closet. All of these are fashionable go-to options for everyday wear.
FOR A NIGHT OUT
Usually, during these warmer months, we go for light-wash jeans or white denim for an evening out, but why not spice it up a bit and rock a pair of dressy shorts? It’s difficult to know how to style these, so we’re offering a few tips. These light blue paper bag shorts (top left) are just the right length for an evening out and the paper bag, high-waisted cut is having a major moment right now. Or, go for this uniquely stylish skort (top middle) for an ultra-flattering fashion-forward look. These accentuate the best parts of your legs without being your average pair of simple shorts. Don’t shy away from leather at this time of year, especially in this warm brown shade and sailor cut (top right) and a flattering pair of black shorts never goes out of style. Lastly, opt for a fun, feminine look with this burgundy tie-front skort (yes skorts are on-trend!) Pair any of these with a classic button-up, embellished tank or simple tee and voila! You’ve put together the perfect spring and summer evening outfit.
