for Warm Weather
Comfortable, easy and uncomplicated—these are the hallmarks of a warm weather wardrobe. You ditch the unnecessary (see: layers and socks) and one could argue that as we creep towards Memorial Day, pant legs would be classified as superfluous. Make sure your closet is stocked with the essential shorts for the season. And while there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to the length, there is definitely a target to aim for: about an inch or so above the knee.
Recycle a pair of old pants or jeans and make your own shorts by cutting them off and fraying the edges. Here's how to do it.
