Personal Shopper: Dressier Shorts for Jenna R

Jenna R. wrote, "Hi! So I am a 22 year old who is a size 8/10...I like to go out and look cute but I am not too keen on having my 'cheeks' hanging out. 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)

Also, New York and Company in the mall has some super cute dressier shorts.. I got a pair that are white, but the material is a shimmery, curtain like material. Yeah, curtains do not sound cute, but these shorts ALWAYS get compliments, they are awesome!

I needed a good laugh, thanks guys. :) Although I'm not sure what "farty" clothes look like, I may have to steal that expression. :)

HAHA! "farty" clothes are clothes that an old lady would wear (or people with no fashion sense)

Thank you so much for these options! I love the Michael Kors ones!!
