If we ask folks to name the most intimidating piece of clothing out there, we bet shorts will make it to the top of the list. In fact, most curvy women confess that the last time they wore shorts was way back in grade school. However, it doesn’t have to be just the skinny girls who can wear the fall shorts trend. It’s all a matter of choosing fits and fabrics that can accommodate our little excesses comfortably (that, folks, is the key word right there). Pair shorts with a fab belt to cinch your waist, plus a loose top to de-emphasize your hips. Let the weather dictate if you should go bare or grab for your trusty tights. It goes without saying, though, that your best accessory will always be your confidence to strut down the street with sass! Check out our selection of plus-size fall shorts on a budget from Torrid.
