Cute Summer Shorts for Women

Written by: Niki Landry

Elastic Waist Summer Shorts

 

Soft

 

Soft and breezy shorts are the epitome of comfort and ease. Perfect as a swimsuit cover-up on the beach or to walk around town. The elastic waist and unrestricting shape are great for hot destinations. As a bonus these flowy bottoms can also double as sleep shorts to save on packing space. They come in so many different patterns and colors; you should easily find a pair to suit your style.

Rolled-Cuff In Stretch Peached Twill Short

 

Bleached Denim

 

An upgrade on the typical blue jean short. These shorts feel more appropriate for the summertime as opposed to a dark wash, and a lighter pair is a little more manageable than white denim. White tends to attract dirt easily. I am currently traveling with a similar pair, and I love the relaxed style and color making them my top pick for cute summer shorts for women.

Another girly style, these cute summer shorts for women are great for day or nighttime wear. Opt for a fun color and pair with simple tees and tops for an effortless look. Lace normally works well in shorter lengths, but they can also be stylish in a high waist shape.

I love these type of shorts for travel. I already own two colors in a similar pair, and pack them for hot and/or modest destinations. Depending on the day, I can roll them down for more coverage or up to show more leg. The relaxed fit makes them great for lots of activities and long travel days.
