Best Shorts on a Budget: Reader Advice

For those of us in cooler climes, the coming of summer brings all kinds of anxieties—a primary one being exposing our legs after a long (and possibly neglectful) winter. As we scramble for the razors, wax, and self-tanners (not to mention the gym), we are thinking ahead to where we can pick up the cutest possible summer pieces to offset our gams once we’ve got them warm-weather-ready. Shorts are at the top of the list, but are tricky for many of us . . . finding cutes style options, quality, and a good fit isn’t always easy. So where do you go to buy shorts on a budget?

One of our favorites: the classic plaid bermuda, by Mossimo at Target, $14.99

    Ann Taylor had a great selection of well-fitting Bermuda shorts, capris and what my mom insists on calling “pedal pushers” but they are bit pricey. I’ll probably buy something similar at Old Navy. The only “real” shorts I wear are running or athletic shorts – those I usually pick up at Marshalls, TJ Maxx or City Sports.

    These shorts are very cute, but for people with a small waist and curvy hips, I prefer a similar casual skirt option.

    I recently found a site called, which has very cute casual skirts for summer.  In fact,  I just picked up a few of their skirts and a spring dress – check them out (and yes, Old Navy is great for bargain pcs!)

    Happy Shopping,
