The "short" version

Hot temperatures means bringing out and buying shorts. Deciding on which length of shorts that are right for you can be difficult. Growing up, the rule for shorts was when your hands are down by your sides, your fingertips need to be longer than your shorts. My only problem with this rule is what if you have longer legs or arms, then this rule doesn't work. I think when picking your shorts it's about personal preference and good sense. Obviously, if your hind part is hanging out when you bend over or stand up, then they are to short. One style of shorts that I think that work well on many body types are the "boyfriend" short. This style gives some flexibility because you can roll these shorts up and adjust the length.

Do you have a personal preference when it comes to shorts?
