Shorts for Women

What’s up, shorty! It’s too hot to wear pants, so get comfy with our wide selection of shorts. Denim shorts are always going to be a summer classic. What kind of look are you looking for? Denim short shorts are super cute. They look great in a light wash with a little bit of distressed detailing. Wear them with an open-knit loose sweater for a beachy look that’s both comfortable and cute. Bermuda lengths, which hit lower on the thigh, are another option which covers more skin if that’s what you’d prefer. Pair it with a white blouse and leather sandals for a classic warm weather fit! Acid wash denim is one way to shake up your denim shorts collection. Similar to distressed shorts, it’s a little grungier for those with more urban tastes. Typically done in a faded black, they look great with black ankle boots or anything with chunky hardware detailing, like a moto jacket for example. Top it off with a beanie and you’re ready for a downtown adventure.

Moving away from denim entirely, you could opt for woven materials that are softer and more fall appropriate. They’re great for that transitory period where you’re starting to feel the autumn chill at the end of the summer season. Corduroy shorts are super cute, as well as pleated twill shorts and styles with a paperbag waistline. These little details really help to elevate a simple pair of shorts. Corduroy is the perfect fall fabric: it’s textural, warm, and oh-so cozy. Try it out in a warm fall hue like mustard, burgundy, or forest green if you’re really feeling festive. Then pair it with an oversized knit sweater and a beanie to complete your look. Pleated shorts look best in a thicker fabric and structured silhouette. You can use a chunky belt as an accent with a turtleneck on top for an effortless everyday look. The same goes for paperbag shorts. Let the gathered waistline take center stage with a coordinating crop top or bell-sleeved sweater.

Gonna kickback at home? Sounds good to us. Get a soft short like dolphin shorts or mesh shorts if you just plan on chilling around the house. Dolphin shorts are a classic 70s look with a curved hem and simple contrast hem. They’d look equally cute by the beach with a graphic tee, too. Sweatshorts are slightly thicker. If you’re concerned about coverage then those are a safe bet, too. But yeah, that’s the short of it – explore all of your short options now. For all seasons and occasions, you’ll find something at Forever 21.
