Caught Short: 15 Fun Summer Short Trends

From Y2K ultra-short to leather lovelies and more, we’re having fun with 2023’s short trends.

Who wears short shorts?  But that’s not to say you don’t have choices if you’re not part of the under 4″ inseam crowd. This summer is providing us a range of options for every occasion, empowering women to embrace their personal style while staying fashion-forward.

To that end, our editors are bringing to you three of the biggest trends for shorts this summer.


Let’s start off with the dominate short trend that comes straight out of Y2K – the short shorts. Because fashion is indeed cyclical, the warmer the weather, the more we’re showing. So ladies, if you’ve got it, flaunt it! Here are five fabulous options courtesy of our editors.

Shall we start with a classic? These divine denims are soooo Beyoncé circa OTR II 2018…

On the flip of this season, if above-mid-thigh leaves you feeling meh, you’ll be very happy to know that plenty of celebs from Bella to Zendaya are actively sporting the Bermuda look. This longer style is much more approachable in a variety of fabrics, from classic denims to of-the-moment cargo to office friendly crepe and summer wool. Here are five options you’re sure to love.

First came the cargo pants, then the cargo jeans, and now…well it stands to reason that as temps rise we’d take our season favorite and cut it off at the knees. Keep ’em casual with a tee or a tank, or zhuzh them up with a half-tucked button down and some mary janes.
