Shorts that Aren’t Too Short? Yes, Please!

One of the biggest questions I get asked this time of year is “Alison where can I find shorts that aren’t too short?”. First off, let me say that I have a very clear opinion on shorts lengths and that is that longer isn’t ALWAYS necessarily better. Truth is the selfie never lies! I always recommend taking several different lengths (of your comfort level, of course) into the fitting room, then snapping a selfie of each one to see which actually flatters your body most.

However, I do agree that most of us are comfortable in a short length with more coverage. I recently discovered these Metro Shorts from Ann Taylor and instantly fell in love. They have a 6″ inseam and the cut is fabulous. They don’t pull across my hips like some other longer shorts can. They also fit well at the waist without gapping.

In today’s outfit pairing I’m dressing them up a bit with a bright top and white block heels but they would be just as great with a tee or tank and some flat sandals. Just add a long necklace and some gold hoop earrings to finish it out!

My bright top is sold out but I’ve linked up some similar options below.
