Lately, it’s been hot AF 🥵! Since quarantine started, I’ve been able to survive on yoga pants and t-shirts. With the temperatures rising, the yoga pants have been retired and my denim shorts have been resurrected.
I didn’t even consider buying some new shorts until a few days ago when the heatwave started creeping up. This summer, I decided to invest in some newer styles and keep a popular seasonal style in heavy rotation. Here are my top three shorts styles to survive the last days of summer.
From my teenage years to most of my adult life, low-rise anything was my go-to waistline. I didn’t start considering high-rise shorts until this year when I realized that seeing the crack of my assets should no longer be a thing when I sit or bend down, lol.
This summer, I decided that high-rise shorts needed to be a part of my wardrobe. I stumbled across these pair of high-rise shorts from Madewell and fell in love! Once I put them on, they were surprisingly comfortable. They provide the right amount of coverage in the waist and I don’t feel overexposed when I bend down. These shorts were definitely the game-changer I needed to survive this summer.
During the summer, I love to show off my legs and not feel overexposed. Even though Bermuda shorts were all over the trend reports this season, I wasn’t ready to go full Bermuda this year so I decided to try a mid-length short. Best decision ever! It shows the right amount of leg and still feels on-trend.
Mid-length shorts have essentially turned into my everyday short! They are the perfect balance between booty shorts and Bermuda’s. When I need to run some errands or visit family, these shorts have been my go-to for many aspects of my life.
Thigh-High aka Booty Shorts
I have a special spot in my heart for these type of shorts. They’ve caught the boys attention in High School, got me through spring breaks in college, and became my secret weapon at the beach and summer day parties. They’re my go-to shorts when I want to show off my legs and accentuate my curves. The key to finding a great pair of thigh-high shorts is STRETCH, STRETCH, & MORE STRETCH!
Every good pair of thigh-high shorts needs to have a good amount of stretch to hug your curves. One of my faves are Good American. Their Bombshell Short ranks high on my list for a good thigh-high short!
Now that the temps are rising, what have been your favorite shorts to survive the summer? Comment below.
