Yeah, we know it’s pouring here in N.Y.C. today, but don’t be fooled–summer starts next month, so you’ll need a good stockpile of shorts to get you through the dog days. And lucky for you, we spent the last week searching high and low for the best shorts for every body type under $50. Whether you’re long-legged, middle heavy or petite, we found a pair that will leave your legs looking fantastic this summer.
Need some help finding the perfect pair for you? Here’s a quick guide:
If you have full thighs, try a looser silk or polyester short. Tighter styles will only draw more attention.
If you are petite, a shorter short–whether cotton or leather–is your friend.
If you are bottom heavy, avoid wild prints and patterns and instead stick with with solids.
If you have long legs, congrats. You’re just about the only women who can pull off short denim shorts.
If you have an apple shape, choose a drawstring, high-waisted pair will accentuate and flatter your midline.
