All the Best Shorts I Tried On For Spring (So You Don’t Have To)

There’s no shortage of opinions on different garments that one may or may not find in their wardrobe, but shorts are a bit of a mystical anomaly. The summer heat in most regions demands them and so we dutifully line the drawers of our dresser with at least a pair or two out of obligation. However, on almost no occasion do we reach in, grab said shorts and feel the tingle of excitement that comes when we, say, have an excuse to wear our favorite midi length linen dress or vintage washed high-rise jeans.
