Nothing says warm weather like a pair of shorts and some flip-flops. Yes, we have flip-flops—but right now we’re concentrating on the shorts. They are the perfect way to look cool while you stay cool. Bermuda shorts—in conservative khaki or a cheery pink or yellow—are appropriate almost anywhere.

After all, they were named for an island. DG2 Diane Gilman has super stretch denim shorts in lots of colors. INC has fun roll tab shorts. Isaac Mizrahi Live! has elegant flat-front shorts. Or if you can’t quite commit to the shorts, try a Liz Claiborne New York Skort (that’s an all-in-one skirt over shorts). Of course, at the other end of the spectrum are Nike running shorts. Didn’t we say something for everyone? Plus size shorts. They are the stylish way to beat the heat.
