Hate Shorts? Try These Stylist-Approved Outfits Instead!

See 4 looks to sport when shorts aren’t your “thing!”

Alternatives to Shorts

Pleated skirt

Pleated skirts are back! This fresh, retro style is multi-talented and manages to be breezy and structured at the same time. Try a longer midi hemline—below the knee or longer— for a modern take on this feminine trend.

Stylist Tip: Highlight your shape by tucking in your top. Then, add a little cool-girl chic to your look with some cute trainers & a laid-back denim jacket.

Alternatives to Shorts


What’s not to love about a style that has all the freedom of pants and the comfort of a skirt? Find a pair in light denim or breezy linen for maximum SPF (swelter-proof fashion). Then, pair your culottes with a longer-length jacket—like a trench coat—for juxtaposition of lengths and an ultra-slimming effect.

Stylist Tip: Focus on footwear. Dress culottes way up (literally) with strappy heels.

Alternatives to Shorts


Oh jumpsuits, how we adore thee. A bit more elevated than overalls, but every bit as comfy and ultra-airy for warmer weather. The best part? You don’t have to worry about coordinating your look—just grab and go.

Stylist Tip: When it comes to one-piece wonders, focus your styling on bold accessories & fab footwear.

Alternatives to Shorts

Wrap skirt

This universally flattering style is your secret summer weapon. The lines and angle of a wrap are both slimming and elongating. Bonus: skirts are cool and comfy on super hot days.

Stylist Tip: Embrace the prints of the season—nothing says “summer” like bright, flirty florals.
