I need some cute shorts that are not too hoochy but also not farty! I am looking for casual shorts that are not jorts! No denim. I want acceptable shorts for a party or a hang out at a bar. Limit probably around $75 if they are the perfect fit :) HELP!"
Janetor here, Jenna: luckily, shorts for summer 2010 aren't all about butt cheeks hanging out, and there are a lot of flattering longer-length shorts and Bermudas, in dressier fabrics like you'd find on trousers, or in refined twill. Here are five pairs that should suit. Hope you like 'em!
1 - Quiksilver Day or Night Shorts ($68)
2 - Kenneth Cole New York Belted Shorts ($34 on sale)
3 - AB Studio Townsend Shorts ($20 on sale, in 2 colors)
4 - Banana Republic Petite Bermuda Shorts ($50, in 3 colors)
5 - Michael Michael Kors Belted Shorts ($60, in 2 colors)
