Women’s shorts are a fun summer fashion staple that makes putting together stylish, warm-weather outfits so much less time-consuming and effortless. Shorts for women are incredibly varied, with endless style options. Depending on the fabric, cut, and design, ladies’ shorts can be worn for everything from formal events to casual outings. You can have a different pair of shorts for every occasion: athletic shorts for working out, shorts for hiking, shorts for sleeping, and trendy, fashionable shorts for going out with friends on a balmy summer evening.
Casual women’s shorts come in many different materials. If you like wearing shorts in your well-heated home during the winter, shop for shorts in flannel and fleece. During the summer, look for lightweight materials like cotton and linen. A pair of ultra-soft, breathable, organic cotton shorts can be worn when you’re catching up on housework, curling up on the couch to binge your favorite TV series, with outdoor activities for women's bike shorts, or getting ready for bed. Denim shorts are also one of the most popular casual shorts styles for many women. They are a classic summer piece that can be paired with equally casual tops like women’s tank tops and other women’s summer shirts. However, denim shorts can also be worn with dressy tops like cashmere sweaters, statement jackets, and silky blouses. Pair your shorts with either women's clogs or women's comfort shoes.
Shorts for Women
Depending on the style, fabric, and cut, formal shorts for women can be worn in professional settings, at dinner parties, on vacation, or for fun summer events. Look for neutral, soft tones, such as beige, white, and gray. These colors are light and eye-catching for summer yet give off a more polished appearance. A pair of dressy shorts in a flattering color is stunning for an upscale lunch with clients or friends. If you pair well-fitted formal shorts with an elegant top, like a crisp white blouse or a womens crewneck sweater, you will have an outfit that is both elegant and ultra-comfy.
If you are the athletic type with a jam-packed schedule full of outdoorsy summer fun and sweaty workouts, shop for moisture-wicking athletic shorts in a material like polyester. A pair of polyester athletic shorts are ideal for hitting the gym, going on nature runs, hiking the trails, or engaging in any other summer activity. They can be paired with sports bras, athletic tops, hoodies, and lightweight jackets if it’s a slightly cooler day, but you know you are going to work up a sweat.
