We've found the best alternatives out there for longer shorts - from bermuda shorts, to flounce shorts - they come in every color, pattern, fabric and print so you don't have to sacrifice on style to go long! Check out our gallery of the best alternatives to short shorts!

How to wear shorts

Shorts seem to have gotten a bad reputation over the years. But with all of the cute colors and styles out there, it's easy to look effortlessly chic no matter which pair you choose. Sometimes khaki or white shorts can look a bit boring on their own. Try pairing them with a shirt that has a bit of of a different texture - something a bit shiny, lacy or with an eye-catching print! If you wear flouncy shorts with a lot of volume (some might even look like short skirts but we know better!), it's best to pair them with a tucked in t-shirt or shirt. You can never go wrong with pairing your shorts with a funky belt, cool little jacket and graphic tee. Pair with some gladiator sandals for day or some chunky heels if you want to dress it up!
