Summer Shorts: 17 Reasons You're Not Going To Miss Your Jeans for the Next Few Months

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Just as there's a time and place for everything, there is also a pair of shorts for (almost) everything. Today, we round up shorts fit for brunches, beaches, and even the occasional casual Friday. Some are breezy enough to pass for a spring skirt, like the airy chiffon culotte from Armani Exchange. Some are dressy enough to sub in for a party dress, like the metallic brocade pair from Topshop. And, of course, there are plenty for when you just feel like letting your legs enjoy the warm weather a bit. Peep them all in the gallery above.—Julie Chen
