Buying the right shorts can be a great way to kick off spring break. There are different styles and lengths for you to choose from. If you’re in the market for some new women’s shorts this year, or if you have a big trip coming up for spring break, keep these tips in mind as you head out on your quest to find the perfect pair of shorts for your perfect body.
High-waisted shorts are in style this year, and they look great with a T-shirt or tank top tucked into them. You can find high-waisted shorts in varying lengths, whether long or short or somewhere in between. With Bermuda shorts being back in style, you’re likely to see high-waisted Bermuda shorts as well as high-waisted shorts in shorter lengths. You can’t go wrong!
If you want to go shopping for shorts, treat yourself to a new pair of shorts that you feel and look good in. Some loose-fitting women’s khaki shorts are great for this purpose. They never go out of style, and they match a wide variety of tops. Some can even be dressed up for more formal summer events, like company picnics or golf outings.
There are so many lengths of shorts in style for 2020 that it may be difficult to decide on the right length for you. It’s best to experiment with different lengths by trying them on before buying them. You may be surprised how a pair of shorts may look one way hanging on the rack and completely different when you put them on, so give them a chance.

If there’s a spring break trip in your future, chances are you’re headed somewhere warm with the chance of swimming involved. Why not add a pair of swim shorts to your wardrobe? Some are versatile enough to wear both in and outside of the pool, which is great when you’re planning on heading to the beach but don’t want to slip in and out of a wet suit to cover up.
Keep in mind that many pairs of shorts can look good on you. The weight and texture of the fabric also make a difference. If you’re going somewhere really hot for spring break, you’ll want lighter fabric, but if you’re heading to a destination where the temperature drops at night, shorts made of a thicker fabric would be a great choice. Just keep your specific plans in mind when choosing shorts, and be sure to walk around in them a bit before finalizing your purchase. If shopping for shorts online, make sure there is a friendly return policy as well so you can exchange them for a better-fitting pair if need be.
