History 

Shorts are a relatively new garment in fashion history - up until the 19th century, modesty prevented most people from wearing shorts. Even in the 1800s and early 1900s, shorts were mostly worn by children or as activewear. It was considered inappropriate for women to wear shorts until roughly the 1930s. There are many parts of the world in which shorts are still considered scandalous for women to wear. However, fashion is becoming more accepting, particularly in western countries, and both men and women are wearing shorts in a variety of different situations. Where shorts used to only be for leisure wear in the summer, you now might find people wearing shorts out in the evening for social gatherings. In some settings, it's even considered acceptable to wear tailored shorts to work in the summer. 

Style

Bermuda

Bermuda shorts are a longer style of shorts, with a hem that hits a few inches above the knee. They started off as business attire for men in Bermuda, hence their name. They have gone in and out of fashion for decades, and are a great way to rock shorts in a more conservative atmosphere, since they don't show too much skin.

Running

These lightweight shorts have become very popular in the last decade not only as exercise wear, but also as a fashion statement as part of the athleisure trend. Running shorts typically have an elastic waistband and a wider cut around the legs to allow for some movement. Wear them with your favorite graphic tee knotted at the waist to show off your figure, for a look that can transition from the gym to hanging with friends. 

Mini

If you like to show off your legs, you should always have at least one pair of mini shorts in your wardrobe. These shorts are very high cut, sometimes barely covering the buttocks, and will make your legs look miles long. Since they are so revealing, pair them with a sleeveless blouse for a classy summer look.

Chino

Chino shorts are typically khaki colored and made of a light, flexible cotton material. They provide the comfort of an athleisure piece, but they still look professional and put together. If you work in a laid-back setting, you may even be able to wear them to the office in warm weather.

Cargo

Cargo shorts are both practical and stylish, with large pockets that you can use to carry all of your essentials. They started off as a practical piece for outdoorsmen and military personnel, but have since become a fashion item as well. They can be challenging to style because of their bulky cut, but they always look nice with a fitted shirt and denim jacket. Add some jewelry for a feminine touch. 

Boyfriend

Boyfriend shorts have been a major trend piece lately, with a slouchy cut that immediately makes any outfit look just a bit cooler. They are typically made from denim, but you may find cotton versions as well. If your style is on the edgier side, try styling a ripped pair with a leather jacket for a head-turning outfit. 

Details

Raw Hem

Raw hem shorts make for an effortlessly chic look with their uneven, slightly fraying ends. These cutoffs look excellent with your favorite pair of sandals and a lightweight sweater for a breezy brunch outfit. 

Distressed

Distressed shorts are particularly popular right now, and are an easy way to achieve an artsy, hipster look while staying comfortable. Many brands have gone beyond rips and tears with their distressing, adding extra details like patches or even drawings to make their designs more eye-catching. Distressed shorts transition easily from season to season, and look just as great with boots and a jacket as they do with sandals and a t-shirt. 

Pleated

If you like a preppy, pulled-together look, pleated shorts should be one of your wardrobe go-tos. Pleats add some structure to shorts, making them more appropriate for formal settings. Lean into the preppy style with a polo and boat shoes, or mix it up with a more casual graphic t-shirt. 

Material

Denim

Denim shorts are a summer staple everyone needs in their closet. This neutral piece goes with absolutely everything, and there are so many different washes and cuts to choose from. Pair them with a breezy button down and some sneakers for a versatile look that can take you through your entire day.

Cotton

Cotton shorts are perfect for the hottest days of the year, because they are so soft and breathable. Their loose fit is flattering on any body type, and they allow you to move around comfortably without any restrictions. Get creative and rock a pair with a cute pattern, like florals, plaids, or polka dots, for a more feminine look. 

Silk

Silk shorts are an incredibly elegant summer option, and they are a great choice for a date or girl's night out. They immediately make your outfit look a bit more luxurious, but they feel like pajamas, so you won't have to compromise your comfort. Rock them with a pair of heels for an effortlessly sexy outfit. 

Lace

Lace shorts are ultra-girly and have a boudoir feel that's appealing and sensual. Since lace shorts already make a statement, pair them with a denim jacket and solid t-shirt to make them a bit more demure. If you want to add some extra detail to your outfit, look for a pair with ruffles or a sash around the waist to keep things interesting. 

Pattern 

Solid

Having a few solid colored pairs of shorts in your wardrobe are a summer essential. Beyond the basic neutral colors, consider adding a bold color to your wardrobe, like pink, green, or orange. Whether you go for a soft pastel or brighter neons, these colors look excellent with trend pieces, like an off the shoulder floral top

Print

Spice up your wardrobe with a fun pair of printed shorts. Designers are getting increasingly creative with their fabric choices, so you can find everything from polka dots to watercolor to tribal print and everything in between. Since printed shorts are such a head-turning piece, pair them with neutrals to let them stand out. 

Striped

Striped shorts are a preppy classic, and they are a great way to dress up an otherwise casual outfit. Keep in mind that horizontal stripes add volume, while vertical stripes will elongate your body. Wear them with a belt to make the look more figure flattering. 

Floral

Floral shorts are a cute, girly look for spring and summer. They are a good alternative to a skirt or dress, which is more classically girly. Because of their feminity, floral shorts are easy to dress up for a night out or a dressy brunch.

Color

Light Blue

Light blue shorts are a sweet option for the summertime. You probably already have a pair of light blue denim in your closet, but you can also find light blue shorts in other materials, like cotton or silk. Light blue looks excellent with bright colors and pastels. 

Black

Black shorts are a great choice for an edgier outfit. If you want to wear shorts in the fall or winter, black is often the way to go. You can create a very streamlined look by wearing black shorts with tights and ankle boots on cooler days. 

White

White shorts are a summer classic, and they are a bit more daring than your classic denim. They look excellent with a jewel-toned top to create some contrast. White isn't always as flattering as darker colors, so pair these shorts with a figure flattering top to keep the outfit streamlined. 

Dark Blue

Navy shorts are possibly the most versatile of all color ways, as they look great with other neutrals, bold neons, soft pastels, and everything in between. Rock a pair of tailored navy shorts for a classy outfit, or opt for darker denim on casual days. 

Beige

Beige shorts are another classic piece for the summer. Chinos are the most common style of beige shorts, but you'll find them available in many different materials. Beige shorts are a good light-colored option if you aren't quite bold enough to wear white. 

Brands

Luxury - Saint Laurent

Saint Laurent is a go-to for luxury shorts with a bit of an edge. Their collection contains everything from leather shorts to raw hem cutoffs to bold patterns, and they are all made with top quality materials.

You Should Know - GRLFRND

GRLFRND is an up-and-coming brand with a great selection of trendy shorts. Most of their shorts are in the boyfriend style, with a relaxed, slouchy fit and trendy distressing. These shorts are a great way to achieve a California cool style. 

Trends

While ultra-short shorts were king for years, styles are starting to shift, with many designers showcasing longer Bermuda styles and loose fits on the runway, showing that you don't have to be revealing to be on trend. The athleisure trend is still going strong as well, with many designers putting out athletic-inspired shorts and pairing them with more high-fashion pieces, like heels and structured tops. We've even seen unique bike-inspired shorts, which are tight and come down to just above the knee, often paired with loose fitting pieces to offset the tight cut. 

Pop Culture

Celebrities like Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid are jumping on the cycling shorts trend as well, often juxtaposing them with a pair of sky-high heels to turn heads. We've also seen celebs rock a suit jacket and tailored shorts to events for a look that can translate easily into day-to-day professional wear at a creative office. 

Shorts are becoming increasingly acceptable in a variety of settings, and it's likely that we will continue to see them in unique settings, like formal and professional events. Wearing fashion-forward shorts is one of the easiest ways to keep comfortable while staying on trend when you're out and about.
