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?

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 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.
