Plus Size Shorts: Do You Dare? We have 15 Picks to Try!


I love shorts. For the spring and the summer, living on the west coast, in the desert heat, staying cool is my ideal. Add to this that I live outside of LA headed towards Palm Springs? Yeah, plus size shorts are everything in my life right now!

I know that shorts aren’t a well-received item or can be a sore spot for a few of you, but for those who dare or do not care about showing off your beautiful gams, I had to round up quite a few pairs of shorts that I have my eyes on for the spring and summer season! Are you ready?

Plus Size Shorts: Do You Dare? We have 15 Picks to Try!

How do you like to rock your shorts?

This year, I am here for quite a few ways to rock shorts!

Culottes, tailored, and worn in; each of these speak to different moods I may be feeling and I am here for it. Oversized tees, relaxed crop tops, boyfriend blazers, matching sets, all of these call out me and I am excited for this!

I do have my own set of rules for buying shorts! I have shared them a few times on the blog, but I had to re-share!

  • I buy a size up. It’s hot. I do not need tights and uncomfortable shorts on top of the heat. To remedy this, I buy a size up. Room for my thighs to move with ease and to reduce the friction.
  • I almost ALWAYS abide by the fingertip rule. If it is shorter than my fingertips- chances are you WILL NOT catch me rocking it. Legs are sexy, but any shorter and I am wearing underwear (in my eyes).
  • I opt for darker rinses and sturdier fabrics, although this year, I am feeling like explorative with the culottes trend! Kind of contrary to staying cool in the summer right? However, a sturdier fabric (heavier cotton blends or denim) reduces the risk of the shorts riding up creating that inverted V. YOU KNOW what I am talking about.

  1. I live in Arizona, so shorts are absolutely necessary during the summer (and part of winter, too haha). I love the jean shorts with the floral embroidery you’re wearing in the second picture! Where did you get those? I’d love to hunt down a pair for myself. 🙂

  2. Those sophisticate pleated shorts from Forever 21 are super cute on, EXCEPT for the fact that the kicky pleat kicks up and literally shows buttcheek when I walk. And I’m not even tall! I was so sad when I realized that lol
