One of the questions I get a lot is what length of shorts is appropriate for women over 40? I don’t think there are hard rules when it comes to age and length of shorts.
Wear the length that you like (of course, if you’ve got cheek showing, then add a few inches. That doesn’t look good on any age woman).
It also depends on your height. If you’re petite, 3-inch shorts may work for you, but if you’re tall, a longer length might be better.
I like a 4 to 5-inch inseam, and I’m 5’5″. Today I’m styling different length denim shorts, 4, 5, 6, and 8-inch.
First up are these 4- inch Wrangler Cutoff Denim Shorts. These are probably my favorites, but it might be because I like the frayed hem.
These are 5-inch inseam shorts, and this is my favorite length of shorts.
I like the feel of these 6-inch Wit and Wisdom shorts. I would size down one size because they have a lot of stretch in them.
In fairness to these 8-inch Kut from the Kloth shorts, they are too big on me. I think they would look a little better if I sized down.
I’m not a fan of the bermuda style shorts, I see them on other women, and they look great!
Overall, I like the 5-inch length the best on me. I do wear shorter shorts, but it depends on where I’m going. If I’m on vacation, shorter lengths don’t bother me. If I’m going to a summer church event, I will wear the 5 -inch length.
What is your favorite length of shorts?
