If you are like most moms this summer, you are spending time with your children of all ages outdoors. Shorts are probably the most comfortable option in the summer heat. Check out the latest options that moms can wear to look stylish, hip and comfy at the same time!
High-waisted shorts were a runway rage and the style is great for moms. The look enhances an hourglass shape, so you look like one of the '60s bombshell movie stars while camouflaging larger hips or thighs. Wear them in a solid color with your kids, and for a little extra pizzazz, flaunt them in a leopard print like these High-Rise Leopard Print Shorts from Forever 21 ($18, forever21.com) and watch your husband go wild.
Denim done right
Denim shorts are a summer staple; however, when running around with the kids, it's probably a good idea to forget the cut-off Daisy Dukes. Instead try a slightly longer cuffed pair like these Women's Denim Shorts from Old Navy in Bardot ($15, oldnavy.com).
It's a short, it's a skirt, no... it's a skort! Chances are your daughter wears skorts all the time. They are the perfect combination of function and feminine, so why shouldn't you wear them as well? You might associate these with playing golf or tennis, but you can also find fashion-forward styles. These are great with ballet flats and a simple T-shirt to make you feel like super mom can always save the day. Try a pair like this Retro Print Skort by Free People ($80, zappos.com).
Bright and cheery
To stay on trend this summer, moms can't miss wearing a pair of ultra-bright shorts. Try a color like neon yellow, pink or orange to be fun and youthful this summer. Pair your eye-catching shorts with a simple white T-shirt to off-set the bold look. Try a cheery pair like these yellow Theory Eiryn Retain Shorts ($130, shopbop.com).
