The Question I Keep Getting
writes, "I always get these two questions during the warmer months of the year: "What length should my shorts be?" and "What's the right length for a crop?" Here is my advice..."
More important than the length is finding the right fit. That should be first and foremost. Think about what pant styles fit best and then look for those lines in a short. Full through the thigh? Slim through the hip? Lower rise? Higher rise? Ponder this when buying shorts and you'll find the perfect pair. Once you get the right fit you can move on to length.

Short Shorts: Who Wears Short Shorts? Anyone remember that Nair ad from the late '70s and early '80s? Not everyone should wear short shorts; my advice is don't do it unless you are comfortable with your legs. I hate to throw age into it, but I have to. We all know who looks good in a daisy duke - and she is much younger. Need I explain?

Mid-Thigh: A mid-thigh length is great for casual styles. Find a relaxed fit for the most flattering look.

Bermuda: A bermuda length hits a few inches above the knee or right at the knee. Bermudas are a great short option for all body types. They are versatile, lengthen the leg and have a flattering line. A petite woman can add length to her leg with a high wedge sandal and a tall woman can pair them with a strappy sandal.

Capris: Depending on your age you may call them clam digger or petal pusher. Either way, capris hit a few inches below the knee or all the way down to the lower calf. It's best if they don't hit at the fullest part of your calf. Above or below will be more flattering on your leg.

Crops: Crops and capris are similar terms that are often interchanged. Crops are considered to be a longer capri. Some hit below the calf or right above the ankle. Ankle length is a strong trend not only for Summer but for Fall and Winter as well. Longer crops and ankle length are typically more flattering than a capri simply because the longer length gives a longer line to your leg.
