The Best Shorts for Summer 2021


Long story short - we are seeing a wide range of lengths in warm-weather bottoms this season. Let's all let out our collective sigh of relief as we unveil our sun-parched legs. This season's list of shorts options is long. From cutoffs to mid-length to long and lean, there is no shortage to choose from as the summer approaches.

The classic cutoff is making a consecutive comeback this year in light and ivory options reminiscent of decades past with raw and frayed hems and 2-3" inseams. We love these rocker vibe bottoms paired with a vintage concert tee and golden goose. Or elevate the look with a platform sandal and lightweight cashmere or linen sweater. The shortest option this season, this ultra casual cut is an essential that we don't see leaving the scene anytime soon.

Don't worry, those upper-thigh-skimming cutoffs aren't the only player in the short game. There are a plethora of mid-length, relaxed denim and cotton twill shorts on the racks. This happy-medium option is both super practical and on-trend. Think the finger-tip length shorts of your past - but updated in modern denim washes and subtle camo prints. We love this casual silhouette with anything from platform sandals to sneakers, graphic tees or a staple simple tank.

Lastly, if a bit more coverage and all-around comfort is your go-to, we suggest the bermuda short! A nautical and slightly more polished silhouette, long and lean shorts in denim and stretch cotton are a flattering and modest choice. Pair a long length short with a lightweight Frank and Eileen button down and Homer's loafer for a true seaside vibe. A lightweight, slightly oversized, knit sweater and simple flat sneaker also pairs well with this slim style.
