If your office allows shorts during the summer, try a pair that hits mid-thigh or just above the knee. For thicker thighs, try a minimal pattern and a slightly longer length – like Bermuda. The Bermudas are perfect for pear-shaped & hour-glass shaped women.

2/ Go for high waist shorts

They are really flattering and allow a lot of nice combinations. Don’t forget to tuck your top inside or just above the waist.
