Cute Summer Shorts for Women

Written by: Niki Landry




Elastic Waist Summer Shorts




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.




Buttercup Short




Although it’s not practical for long-term travel, these feminine scalloped white shorts would be perfect for a brief holiday. Pair with wedges or metallic sandals for a resort friendly look.




Lace Shorts




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.

Roll Up


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.




Everyday Skort




Skorts are showing up in stores again and are the perfect alternatives to shorts for travel. Available in various colors and prints, they can work from sightseeing to going out at night.




Utility Shorts




Utility style shorts are a versatile option for travel. They work for outdoor activities, and as casual pair to wear around town. This classic black is a great basic to and would coordinate well with bold tops!




Denim Overall Shorts




As a teenager I rocked quite a few pairs of overalls, and I’m so glad to see them back. I haven’t made the plunge yet, but I think they look so youthful and fun. You can pair them with a basic t-shirt or tank, or they can also look good with a crop top layered below These cute summer shorts for women are an easy
