Loosen up

If the idea of itty-bitty bottoms sounds scary, reach for a classic style in a relaxed fit.  Paper-bag, trouser front shorts and flowy shorts are all your best bet for a looser silhouette.

Keep a lookout on length

You’ve got the silhouette, now what about length? The longer the inseam, the more coverage you’ll have (and the less exposed you’ll feel). Bermuda shorts are a vacation staple that translates easily into your everyday wardrobe too.

Choose a Shorts Alternative

But if these tips still make you think that shorts aren’t your thing, you’re in luck! This season, try out a breezy, one-piece jumper or a midi skirt for a fresh take on warm-weather dressing.
