Seriously, living in Sacramento it really is near impossible to get away without throwing a pair on once in a while. With temperatures known to reach 100+ in the Summer, shorts are sort of a necessity. Much like a pool or a really efficient watering hose.

Like so many women, however, shorts are not an item I typically purchase. Shorts have developed a reputation of being for the young and well, the skinny. Don’t fret, my pet, there are variations of this look that can work for everyone. And let me just say, a spray tan never hurts ;-)
Try a cuffed short that hits mid-thigh or perhaps a culotte with some flare works better for your figure? If not, I like a longer, fisherman pant and it seems Dsquared2 has perfected this look. Tommy Hilfiger, Jason Wu and DVF are breaking out the shorts left and right and lucky for us, they come in all lengths and sizes. Belt it, layer your upper body with cardigans or drapey vests, and your look is complete. Try shorts with open toe booties or a strappy gladiator sandal and you will be ready for Summer weather.
