Finding the best summer shorts for women can sometimes be a difficult and tedious task when many of them are too short, too tight, or look unflattering. You want summer shorts that are perfect for any occasion, whether you're going on a hike, getting ready for an upcoming cruise vacation, updating your work wardrobe, or planning a picnic with your family.

As you search for a brand-new pair — or pairs — of women’s summer shorts, keep these affordable options in mind. The good thing about these summer shorts is that you can either dress them down with a pair of comfortable flats or dress them up with wedges.

You can pair these trendy, neon pink biker shorts with an oversized shirt or even a cute tank top for a more relaxed look.

These paperbag shorts are form-fitting around the waist but loose around the thighs to keep you cool on the warmest day.

These floral shorts have sneaky pockets on the side so you can store a few cards when you go on a shopping spree.

These shorts are more elegant and work-appropriate due to the length. You'll love wearing them with a crisp white button-down top or a bright blouse. 

If you're looking for a short that hits a little lower on the thigh, but isn't really a bermuda short, this is it.

You can dress these denim shorts up with a pair of wedges or dress them down with a pair of walking shoes.
