How to Wear Shorts in Your 20’s, 30’s, & 40’s

Temps are high and cooler weather isn’t in sight. These conditions lead to a widespread trend in skin exposure. But, how do you gauge what is the right amount of skin? Unlike skirts and tanks, shorts tend to be the more complex summer favorite.

Don’t fret, we have the solution! With the right color, fabric, and cut; you can turn your shorts nightmare into a closet favorite. We have enlisted the help of some favorite celebs to help shape the picture of what shorts are right for your age group.

If you’re in your 20s there is a lot more room for experimentation and shorter hem lines. Go for vibrant colors and textured accents. In your 30’s you want to look for more of a structured expression to enhance your style. For our 40+ ladies, we suggest that you opt for a longer length with tailored details for a modern, stylish twist.



In your 20’s…

There is SO much space for experimenting with bold and bright colors and yes… itty-bitty shorts. Try distressed denim shorts and a sweater like Selena Gomez is wearing or a textured pair of shorts with a basic black top like Taylor Swift.

In your 30’s

Aim for a more structured silhouette look to highlight your appearance. Prints are the current trend so we suggest that you experiment to find a pattern that fits your personality. Kerri Russel is wearing a structured shorts suit that looked absolutely amazing on the red carpet. Reese Witherspoon pulls off a graphic floral print pair of shorts that elevate her look and her legs.

In your 40’s…

Bermuda shorts are one of the greatest introductions to fashion! If you’re not sure about this trend, grab a pair that boast tailored detailing to add a younger edge while still looking age appropriate. We love this photo of Kate Beckinsale showing off her legs in pleated shorts with a detailed black belt. Jennifer Aniston pulls off the perfect Bermuda shorts with a button up shirt.
