According to Google:  How do you make long shorts look good?

  • Wear casual tops. These shorts, especially when they’re long, can look matronly, so keep your look younger by pairing them with a slouchy tee and some sneakers or sandals.
  • Try a preppy look. Pair it with a lightweight pullover sweater, or a short or long sleeved button down.

We say … wear what you want … Our Long Shorts are gonna look good no matter what!
