Who Wears Short Shorts?

Fashion Lifestyle South Florida

Who Wears Short Shorts?

Remember that commercial for Nair hair remover? Who Wears Short Shorts? Better yet, remember the original song by The Royal Teens? At one time or another, many of us (if you’re old enough to remember) were humming that annoying little tune on repeat—one of those little ditties that you couldn’t forget.

Well, dear friends, this is not a post about short shorts. At least it’s not about me wearing short shorts. That’s something I’ll never subject anyone to, ha, but it is a post about my favorite shorts and my bona fide love affair with Chicos So Slimming Bridgette shorts – specifically the 13-inch length style.

This is not a sponsored post either, although I have been gifted clothing from Chicos. I just wanted to share what I love about these shorts, in case you’re in the market for a pair or two. And yes, if you want to wear short shorts, Chicos has those too, and God bless ya! So let’s take a peek at my favorite style (I have six pairs!) and some of my fellow Chicos lover’s favorites, too! You might recognize a familiar face here, besides mine!

Do You Dare Wear Short Shorts? Nope.

Ok, so technically, a seven-inch inseam may not qualify as a short short, but to me, it sure is. Chicos offers shorts in seven-inch (Zenergy Collection), nine-inch, ten-inch, twelve, and thirteen-inch lengths, so I’m pretty confident the brand will have a pair with your name on them! 

Chicos shorts are easy to wear, easy to take care of, and easy to pack for travel, making them the perfect choice to take on vacation. They’re also versatile. The styling opportunities really are endless. You can dress ’em up, or you can keep them casual.

So as promised, let’s see if you recognize any of these lovely ladies…

    Everyone looks fabulous in their shorts. I NEVER wear shorts myself though. I stick to cropped length because they make me feel much more comfortable and confident.

    These are great shorts! I’ve been buying and wearing more bermuda shorts like this recently – it’s an easier length for whatever the day has in store and great for running around with the kids! Everyone is really rocking these.

    Hope you are having a good week 🙂

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
