Short Shorts



White Rusched Top: Vol 1. Shorts: Bongo. T-Strap Brown Sandals: Nine West. Watch: Guess. Handbag: New York & Co.

I don't typically post my more casual weekend wear, but today I'm veering from the norm and posting a basic jean / tank combo.

It was a lovely warm weekend day - so no better time to break out the short shorts and show some leg! I will say, however, that I think I may be getting too old to wear these kind of shorts. I tend to wear the city shorts (just above the knee) most often simply because they are more comfortable. My boyfriend still likes the shorter shorts too (of course), but I might just be at a point in my life where I'm ready to give them away.

What do you think? How old is too old to wear short shorts? I'm 25 - is it time? Or is it strictly contingent on body type and how well a person can wear them? Vote Here!

I dont think it matters what age you are, clothes come with size labels not age labels ;)

They look gorgeous on you, and as long as you feel confident and comfy in them, id say wear them no matter what the age!

I think you can wear short shorts at any age as long as you still look good in them. And you look gorgeous! You would even catch my eye if I saw you in public! ;) Serously, you look fantastic, keep wearing them as long as your comfortable in them!

I would say that once you start having spider veins on your legs, then it's time to give up short shorts. I'm pregnant with baby #4 and started to get spider veins after baby #2. I love the knee length walking shorts. I want them to stay in vogue forever.

No way! you're not too old for short shorts at 25, if you've got the legs for them, flaunt 'em...

Argh, so jealous of your legs! You can definitely rock the shorts look

I think it's more about body type and how you're wearing them. As long as you can pull it off and don't look like you should be standing on a street corner...I thin it's fine!

As long as you still have the legs and the confidence to wear them! I am almost 42 and I have a pair of khaki shorts about that length that I wear (and I have spider veins, so pfft to that). Screw what other people think - if you feel good in 'em, keep wearing 'em.

You are a lot younger than I thought you were!

I love this summer casual look on you. Those shorts make your legs look amazing :)

I say as long as you look good in them (which you do) and weather permitting obviously. I am 22 and I still wear kiddie skirts much less short shorts haha.

Jess said...

You still look good in them, so you can keep wearing them if you want :)

Usually, I do think they look a bit young. I mostly see them on girls in high school and college, but not as much on women who are past college.

It's a matter of personal style though- and also the way the item itself is styled. Formal shorts that are short look 'older', and can be more easily styled to look more sophisticated (albeit in a very sexy way).

So if you want to keep showing off those legs, maybe you just want to reconsider the style of short shorts you wear and how you style them if you think what you are doing now looks too young.

I think that age shouldn't preclude anyone from wearing anything (within reason!). I am also 25 and have a decent body and can definetely pull off the short shorts - I just don't feel comfortable in them because I am a Mom and it just doesn't feel appropriate to me. YOU however look smokin hot and ready to party in that outfit! I would wear that if my lifestyle dictated it, for sure.

sexy legs and body said...

My opinion, you can wear them for as long as you feel comfortable in them. In your case, wear them with pride, you look very sexy and stylish in them! So if you've got it, flaunt it!

girl, as long as your legs look like that you should keep wearing 'em until you're an elderly woman.

I'm 25 as well, but i also am married and a mommy so it may be a little different for me.

While i perfer sundresses in the summer, i will on occasion wear shorts, they usually are above the knee, but if i do choose to wear a shorter-short i make sure they have at least a 5" in-seam and i cover up a little more on top.

Nahhh, 25 is still very young and PROPER to wear short shorts especially since you always do it elegantly (like here) and since your body is fit, beautiful, tall and thin. Plus you have amazing, shapely legs so why not. I turned 30 this year and my body isn;t like it was 4-7 years ago and I still wear short shorts with the proper shoes, proper tops, etc. (done right if you know what I mean.) I am against Daisy Dukes though, unless you're by a beach or at a club in Miami.

Adorable outfit hun. Love the long white camisole.
