Well ladies, it’s that time of year again when we start pulling out the shorts. Today I’m sharing different lengths of shorts for women over 40.
This is always a fun discussion and I think there are some things we can agree on.
1. If you don’t want to wear shorts, don’t wear them. This year crop pants and maxi dresses and maxi skirts are popular and they are great alternatives.
2. NO Daisy Dukes. (At least not for me.)
3. It’s important to find the length and style that is flattering on your body type.
So, if you’re wanting to wear shorts, here are some different short options. Hopefully, one or more will work for you!
This is a white pair of boyfriend shorts.
Bermuda shorts are an option. A lot of women over 40 go this route but truthfully, not everyone can wear them. I can NOT wear them.
They look best on tall, slender body types. These shorts have an 11 inch inseam.
Shorts that are supposed to be flattering for everyone are mid-length shorts.
The hemline should hit right at the narrowest part of your leg, and avoid a cuff which visually adds width. These shorts have an 8 inch inseam.
I personally love shorts with a 6 inch inseam.
Loft has my favorite 6 inch inseam shorts. They have solid and patterned shorts. I also like to wear a wedge heel with shorts. They help elongate the leg.
Let’s grab our sunless tanning lotion and get ready for shorts weather!
Also check out Loft’s sale on shorts. They are having 50% off most styles.
Which of these shorts are your favorite style for spring/summer?

Beauty For the Heart~~
Where my soul is filled with sorrow, strengthen me with your words.
Where my heart seeks selfish gain, turn me toward your statutes.
When I’m afflicted and discouraged, fill me with hope and comfort in your promises.
Give me understanding, that I may keep your law and observe it with my whole heart.
Open my eyes, that I may behold wonderful things out of your law.
Give me a love for your word. Make it my meditation all the day.
(Taken from selected verses from Psalm 119)
Have a blessed day!
