My philosophy with shorts is this: the shorter the better. A major trend this spring is short shorts, but the point isn't for you to look ridiculous. The key for you is to evaluate your height and find a short that hits above the knee but not in thong-territory.
Chino Fabrics are smart, linen ones are cool, and corduroys are great for the humid/neutral days. Not only are they perfect for the first memorial day cookout, but they're also great for paring with a striped t-shirt and blazer. Change the way you approach the short game and the way you style them.
