The Best Shorts for Tall Women

There’s nothing more stylish, comfy, or chic to wear when it's warm out than shorts. For tall women, we know it can sometimes be a struggle to find a long-lasting, well-fitting pair. When shopping at Lands’ End, you can be confident in finding shorts that accentuate your figure in all the right places. From denim to chinos, there’s a pair of women’s shorts to suit your style. Constructed from high quality materials, you can rely on them to withstand multiple washes and general wear and tear.

When it comes to the types of shorts that are best for tall women, there really are no rules. Choose a pair you like in a flattering length and you’ll be able to pull off any look with confidence and style. Read on to discover the silhouettes that are universally flattering for taller frames and different ways to wear them.

High-Waisted Shorts

A pair of high waisted shorts is a stylish, versatile way for tall women to create or accentuate an hourglass shape. A pair that’s hemmed at the most flattering part of your leg can be styled to elongate the legs or shorten the torso. These shorts will look equally as good with a crop top as with a long, flowy blouse. High-rise shorts at Lands’ End are made with comfort in mind and are designed to sit at your natural waist.

This silhouette is easy to style for a range of different warm-weather looks. For a casual, athletic outfit, wear your high-waisted shorts with a T-shirt and sneakers and accessorize with a baseball cap. Heading to the pool or beach? Throw them on over your bathing suit with a relaxed top and sandals. You can also pair them with heels and a snazzy shirt for a more polished look.

Bermuda Shorts

If you’re a tall woman who prefers a longer cut of shorts, consider a pair of women’s Bermuda shorts. Hitting just above the knee, they can provide the coverage you want while still looking stylish. They’re also super comfy, easy to clean, and can be worn for a variety of occasions, including work and social events.

A pair of fitted Bermuda shorts is a great option for tall women who want to accentuate their legs. To show off your curves, opt for a pair in a looser fit that sits at your waist and wear it with a fitted top. Bermuda shorts work well as dress shorts, making them the perfect choice for spring and summer events. Browse a wide range of styles and designs at Lands’ End to find your most flattering fit.

Long Shorts

Shorts that hit on the knee are another great option for tall women who are looking for extra length. Like Bermudas, long shorts can be worn for a range of dressier, warm-weather events. For an easy, pulled together look, wear a pair of long chino shorts with a crisp, white blouse and your favorite wedge sandals.

The selection of long shorts at Lands’ End also includes more relaxed styles that are perfect for workouts and lounging. A pair of long biker shorts offers a streamlined fit that transitions well between activities. You can wear them with a crop top when you’re hitting the trails, then throw on a T-shirt or sweater for brunch.

Athletic Shorts

Whether you’re going on a coffee run or headed to the gym, a pair of relaxed, pull-on athletic shorts are another transitional piece for tall women who want an easy, throw-on-and-go style. Made from moisture-wicking fabrics with an antimicrobial finish, these shorts will keep you comfortable and dry, no matter how busy the day.

For casual, everyday style, wear your athletic shorts with a sleeveless tank or your favorite T-shirt. If you want to dress them up, a fancy, voluminous top can help to elevate your look. Keep it streamlined in a monochromatic ensemble or introduce a bright, contrasting print for a splash of color and personality. Pairing your athletic shorts with a tailored blazer is another stylish way to smarten up your outfit.

Cotton Shorts

If you’re in search of a relaxed and lightweight fit for the summer, look no further than a pair of women’s cotton shorts. Airy and chic, these are the perfect shorts for tall girls to wear to casual, outdoor events. From picnics in the park to barbecues in the backyard, they’ll keep you cool and comfy in the heat. Cotton shorts will look great with all your favorite T-shirts and tops. Wear them with a white tank layered under a striped, button-down shirt for a sophisticated summer look. For a more whimsical outfit, pair your cotton shorts with an off-the-shoulder blouse and a stylish hat.

Tall women don’t need to shy away from wearing shorts. With the right style and length, you can create multiple, stylish looks. Take your outfit to new heights with a pair of shorts from Lands’ End, designed to deliver long-lasting quality and a flattering fit.
