Summer Shorts


Summer Shorts

Summer Shorts

It’s getting close to summer, and the weather is definitely getting hot (at least in LA)! I always like the idea of wearing shorts in summer, but I prefer to find styles that cover my booty well :) Here are 7 pairs from this season that I really like:


Forever 21 Shirt | Madewell Shorts | Valentino Bag | Gucci shoes

Scallop Shorts

Madewell (from Net-A-Porter)
Scalloped Crepe Shorts

An easy way to find longer shorts is to look for dressy styles that have some kind of detail on the edges. A lot of times the detail makes sure there’s extra fabric and it’s not trying to show off your booty! I’ve seen a lot of scallop styles like this lately, and I think it’s so cute.

Black Madewell Shorts

High Rise Denim Shorts in Washed Black

I like the cuffs on this pair so you could roll them up or down depending on what length you want. Sometimes I like a pair that kind of hugs my butt, but want the option of rolling them down for something even more modest if I’m headed to a professional event.

Raw Edge Denim Shorts

FRAME (from Nordstrom)
Le Original Tulip High Waist Shorts

Raw edges are my fav, and I wear a lot of dark denim. I like how this pair has the cute, boxy shape of booty-shorts but they’re still long enough to cover.

Camel Summer Shorts from Madewell

Monroe High Rise Shorts

I really like high rise styles for shorts because it gives them such a classic look. I also love anything camel-colored, so these are a win-win!

Dressy Shorts

IRO (from Saks Fifth Avenue)
Sigler High Waist Shorts

These are perfect for when you want dress more formally, but still be in shorts. They would be a great option for work or when you want to fake a skirt :)

Striped Shorts for Summer

AG Jeans (from Shopbop)
The Juliette Shorts

I love the stripes on these, making them feel super summery and light.

Long White Shorts

M.i.h Jeans (from Net-A-Porter)
Caron Cut Off Denim Shorts

These are visibly a longer style, and I really like the wide/flared leg to make them more stylish and comfy. Citizens of Humanity has a pair really similar to these as well.

    I think the Madewell ones are my favorite. They’re so flattering but also nice and butt-covering. Haha. Thanks for the post!

    I am completely on the same page with you- I need my booty to be covered! Love those high rise Madewell shorts; they’re so cute! But the striped pair is also excellent.

      Love that one too! It seems a little easier to find longer shorts when they’re somewhat dressy like that.

    looking fabulous as always! I agree about the length of shorts. Sometimes it is tough to find that perfect flattering inseam. I don’t like them too long but not booty peeking out either! Love your round up here! I think my favorites are the pair by Frame. I usually cut into mine so that the front is shorter than the back. and so I can achieve that perfect length.
    Great post, Michelle!
    XO! Gina

    I would love to have Madewell high-rise denim shorts, Madewell Monroe high rises in mustard-brown color and M.I.H. Cut-offs in white color. All these bottoms can be easily teamed with a simple shirt or tee.
