The Cutest Shorts for Summer

Shorts are the best, right? They're feminine and flirty, but you can also climb trees in them. Here are five of our faves right now:  Blizzard Conditions Shorts, ModCloth ($32, pictured). Dotted black-and-white beauties with a ruffled bottom and a hefty dose of flutter.

 Algorithm Shorts, Spotted Moth ($30). Modern geometry meets vintage inspiration. Total showstoppers.

 Floral Tap Short, Delia*s ($14.50, on sale). With a black background and tons of pretty flowers, these shorts are the perfect dose of sweet for a casual summer look.

 Ecote Embellished Shorts, Urban Outfitters ($59). So pretty! These are fancier (and pricier) than the rest, but they're the kind of shorts that you could wear out for a night on the town. Perfect first date material. Just saying.

 Pleated Yard Short, Target ($18). Plaid and preppy -- these are true classics.
