Well ladies, summer is upon us, and with the temperature hitting triple digits, a bevy of shorts is a must-have for your seasonal wardrobe. We've selected our favorites, categorized to match your mood! Classic/Preppy:
Every girl needs a great pair of preppy shorts, and our favorites are the Klique Polka Dot Shorts
, the No Fuss Shorts
, the Miss me Indigo Lace Shorts
, and the Alythea Conductor Shorts
. The polka dot print of the Klique
shorts are simple yet chic, and add some visual interest to any outfit, as displayed by Anna Kendrick!
If you like how Kate Moss wore these striped shorts, try our pair, the Conductor Shorts
which will lend a chic vibe to your look with its muted tones and preppy belt. Retro/Vintage Feel:
Fashion is cyclical, and because of that trends like high waist shorts and nautical themes are coming back into the spotlight. To best give your style a shot of retro coolness, try the Kristy Shorts
, a light wash pair with a super flattering cut which gives them a 70's running shorts-type of vibe. Next to that pair is the Hey There Sailor Shorts
, a great high waist pair that features a navy material with cute matching buttons running alongside the hip pockets.
We love how Liv Tyler styled her high waisted, nautically themed shorts! If you want to get her look, try the Hey Sailor Shorts
from Sis Sis. This pair features details that channel a nautical vibe and high waist. Try them with sky-high wedges for a fun daytime look that's easy to dress up or down. Casual:
A great pair of comfy denim shorts are the perfect item for summer, and with so many options in washes and fits, you're guaranteed to find a pair out there that you'll love. If you like Jessica Alba's take on casual denim, try this medium wash pair that's received rave reviews thanks to the slight stretch that makes these super comfy. The Lighthouse Shorts
from Big Star
are a great daytime piece that you'll definitely wear over and over this season.
High waist shorts are definitely on-trend, and our favorite pairs of distressed high waist shorts are the Klique High Waist Shorts
in white, and the Flying Monkey High Waist Cutoffs
in black. Feminine Flair:
If you feel like it's too warm for pants, but you still want your style to reflect a feminine edge, there are lots of styles out there that will suit you. We love shorts with a details like a floral print or lace. If you like how Jamie Chung wore her black lace shorts, get a similar look from the Wrapped In Lace Shorts
from Alythea. Available in two different colors of lace, either will leave you smiling.
If you like to get your flair from prints instead, like singer Ciara, try the Klique Navy Floral Shorts
, a navy pair with a bright floral pattern!
With so many different patterns, fits, and finishing touches, we know you'll find the perfect pair. Visit For Elyse
