If there was ever an article of clothing to define Summer, it’s shorts. Bathing suits, yeah, they’re also major. Dresses? I mean, obviously, but we wear those year-round. Miniskirts? They probably get more wear in the heat, but you can layer them with tights in the Winter, too. Shorts are quintessentially Summer, thus making a range of shorts outfits essential – whether you style yours for weekends, work (which, yes, can be a thing), or vacation.
While denim cutoffs are usually the go-to in the shorts department, smarter styles with feminine touches abound this season, from high-rise silhouettes that fit looser and longer on the leg to playful prints and frilled hems. Even jean shorts are seeing a reboot via chambray fabrics with cargo pockets and ruched waist detailing.
