Women's Shorts FAQs
What styles of women's shorts does Chico's sell?
Shorts are inherently casual, whether you're trying to keep cool or just want to show off your mile-long legs. We sell a variety of women's shorts that lean into the latest trends but prioritize timeless style.
Try our women's cargo shorts or girlfriend shorts when you need more storage with a relaxed, looser style. We also have vaion-ready linen shorts for women and classic women's khaki shorts.
Our pull-on denim shorts are a wardrobe essential and are made with an elastic waistband that won't hold you back. They're easy to relax in and soft while flattering and smoothing the figure.
Looking for added comfort? Try our collection of women's cargo shorts made from stretch fabric and fitted with a hidden panel for tummy control.
The best part? Our shorts have pockets for function without sacrificing fashion. And you can find styles with different inseams to find the right length for your height.
When are skorts better to wear than shorts?
Shorts and skorts are both essential for any modern woman's closet. However, there are a few key differences in when you should wear them. Shorts are casual and iconically versatile, while skorts can be feminine or sporty and are especially appropriate for activities like tennis, golf, or gardening.
When it's hot outside, a skort can keep you cool while looking slightly more elevated than casual shorts. Since you can dress skorts up or down with tops, sweaters, and jackets, you can wear them with a nice blouse and heels for a contemporary but trendy look.
How do you style shorts for different occasions?
While pants are better for some types of occasions, there are several ways you can enhance your ensemble and make shorts look more professional in the workplace or when going to a more upscale event. For example, you can wear tailored women's shorts with a nice blouse and a pair of flats or add a blazer with heels at the office.
For more casual days, you can wear shorts with a tank or tee with accessories. You can even wear shorts with boots, sweaters, flats, and blazers when it's colder out.
Try natural hues like women's khaki shorts for versatility. Our khakis pair well with any color, shoes, and style and can even be worn with a blazer.
