After winter ends, we love to shed off our heavy layers and finally show a little skin–thank goodness, summer is finally here! But following all of the season’s latest fashion trends doesn’t mean you have to wear clothes that make you uncomfortable.
If you’re not a fan of mini dresses and booty shorts, there are other options that are a little less revealing. We’re calling four shorts trends that are quickly going to replace the tiny denim cut-offs in your closet.
1. Bermuda Shorts – The longer denim shorts have the same feel as your old beloved daisy dukes but are far more family BBQ friendly. Bermuda shorts are knee-length and will keep you covered and comfortable, all summer long.
2. Paper Bag Waist Shorts – This spring we saw paper bag waist pants come to life, and now the style coming to conquer summer fashion. Paperbag waist shorts are often made from a comfortable and breathable woven cotton fabric–ideal for hot summer days.
3. Jersey Shorts – Giving you the same comfort as your favorite pair of pajama shorts, these shorts are made of stretch cotton jersey fabric. They often have an elasticized waistband making them all the comfier. Get a pair with a lace trim hem to dress them up.
4. Linen Shorts – Cut-off shorts are never work appropriate, but linen shorts can be (depending on your work environment, of course)! Linen shorts are typically longer in cut, making them less likely to ride up like cut-off denim shorts. Another great bonus: linen fabric keeps you cool and comfortable during even the hottest part of the day.
