15 Pairs of Shorts That Curvy Girls Will Love
One of the best parts of summer is getting the chance to step out of your skinny jeans and finally let your legs breathe. While skirts and dresses have a special place in our heart (and an entire section of our closet), some days we just can’t be bothered to deal with any thigh chafing. Which is why stylish shorts are such a summertime savior. Here are 15 pairs that plus-size ladies can—and should—wear from now until Labor Day. And maybe a few weeks after that, as well.
They’re not quite neon, which means they’re entirely work appropriate.
ASOS Curve ($35)
A go-to denim pair that’s just detailed enough to make any old T-shirt feel special.
Lane Bryant ($60)
Give leg-lengthening vertical stripes a boost with a striped top.
Now you can take a little bit of that tropical feeling with you, everywhere you go.
Keep them rolled for a neat and clean look, or roll ’em down to reveal a raw cut hem.
Lucky Brand ($70)
For those among us who are constantly asking: “But does it come in black?”
Warp & Weft ($64)
Pink and White Dots
An easy pink style that’s a perfect mix of soft and structured.
Let these cuties steal the spotlight by keeping the rest of your ensemble totally simple, in a solid shade of black or white.
With a slightly longer length, subtle grid print and slight shine, these are totally ideal for casual Friday.
Who What Wear for Target ($30)
Who says your everyday shorts need to come in a boring color? Pro tip: Pair this beautiful eggplant hue with a trendy daffodil top, to really stand out from the pack.
Old Navy ($27)
A classic staple that looks good with a preppy button-up for an afternoon with your parents and an off-the-shoulder blouse for an outdoor concert.
Good American ($139)
Pull those ties up to show off your stems, or let them hang loose for a little more coverage.
The roomy silhouette provides the polished look of a skirt, without any of the dreaded thigh-chafing.
Tailored to perfection and ready to go straight from the office to drinks on the patio.
Lands’ End ($55)
