Style Roundup: 7 Pairs of 7-inch Shorts

Sport this shorter inseam all summer long

You’ve done the squats, now give your legs the spotlight with a shorter inseam this summer. We know you’re better than a knee-length lewk, so if you haven’t already, why not consider a pair of 7-inch shorts for the warm weather?

Below, 7 of the best 7-inch shorts just for you:

1. J.Crew, $70

SG Says: Functional by definition, shorts are designed to keep you cool, so why not maximize escaping the heat even further by elevating your hemline a bit?

2. Vineyard Vines, $75

SG Says: Even better than their function as “nature’s AC,” shorts can be used to accentuate your frame. It’s simple enough: longer shorts (below the knee) will visually shorten your legs, while showing some thigh will make your legs look longer.

3. Club Monaco, $90

SG Says: The best thing to pair with these striped shorts? Confidence. If anything outside of solids makes you feel a little stressed, don’t sweat it, you’ll look great.

4. Goodfellow & Co., 19

SG Says: Keep in mind that fit is king. Anyone can get used to a 7″ inseam, but if your shorts are too tight, you’ll look…squished. Order accordingly, and everybody’s happy.

5. Bonobos, $88

SG Says: A great part about playing with pattern on your shorts? It makes it easy to throw on a solid colored t-shirt, OCBD, or light sweater and be on your way. Consider it summer style, made simple.

6. Rhone, $88

SG Says: Go purple or go home! It doesn’t hurt to try a bold color every once in a while, you’ll be sure to get compliments!

7. Patagonia, $59

SG Says: Pair these shorts with a messenger bag and your favorite slip-on sneakers for a day of errands in style. Cuffing the hemline is a great way to try the 7″ style without the commitment – fold the hem of your shorts twice to get the look.
