Who wears shorts? It’s not you! Use. Not always. Many shoppers will agree that sometimes we just want something longer, looser, and less likely to make us pull down the hem. We’re all about shopping mid-length shorts lately!

Mid-length shorts, also known as midi shorts, are shorter than Bermuda shorts and longer than Daisy Dukes. They sit at a sweet spot right in the middle, offering a little more coverage and usually a little more comfort too — while still looking majorly cute! Below are our top 17 favorites from Amazon and beyond.
