No style lasts forever, but chances are, it’ll make its way around eventually. Sometimes hard (hello pleats), other times more hesitantly (bell bottoms, anyone?). In the case of short shorts, that trend seems to have landed somewhere in the middle. We’re here to tell you, there’s no need for hesitation. It’s summer. Everywhere you go, it’s a heat wave. And you’ve worked hard on those damned leg days (or not). Either way, you’ve earned short shorts. You deserve short shorts. We’re talking sleazy ’70s short a la Donald Glover traipsing the streets of New York shirtless earlier this week. Internet-breaking Milo Ventimiglia leaving the gym short. Tom Selleck short. Marathon Man Dustin Hoffman short. 5 inchers if you’re a rookie. 3 inchers if you’re feeling bold. You got this. Below, we give you our edit of the best ones around.
