Say goodbye to the days of uncomfortable chaffing and sweat between your thighs on a hot summer’s day, and instead, say hello to shorts that let you breathe (and you don’t have to adjust every few seconds to feel comfortable). The best shorts for summer right now are the ones that are longline. We’re talking 9-inch seams or more. Don’t get us wrong, booty shorts are still a moment, we’re just focusing on longline shorts. Think about all the cool ways you can style them. It’s always been hard to really dress up shorts, the only person who’s been able to do it perfectly has been Rihanna, but where there’s a will, there’s a way.
You can style your long shorts (like below) on a really hot day with a simple tank top with slight details and even a heel like Rihanna would, or dress it down with a graphic tee and a pair of Adidas Sambas or just any pair of sneakers.
Or, you can dress up your shorts with a blazer and heels for brunch or just your daily cafe run to meet new people. They don’t have to be faux leather, but the added texture to a pair of long shorts is a fun touch. You can also style a pair of long shorts that are cargo style in the same way or just dress them down with a simple tank or t-shirt.
Now that you have some styling inspiration, we found a few pairs that we think would be fun and easy to style. These shorts below are longline and chaffing-safe.
Take a look at what a few pairs to add to your cart this summer!
