I'm happy to report that longer shorts do exist. And despite what young folk may have you believe, styles with a 7-inch or even 10-inch inseam can look good on different body types. Pair your bermudas with a beautiful printed blouse and slip-on sandals, and you have a lovely summer outfit that works for lunch with friends or dinner out with your spouse.

If you need a few pairs of not-too-short shorts to get you through the sweltering summer months, check out our top picks below. They're all $25 or less and available in a wide range of sizes.
