Summer “Panting”

By Silhouettes · July 12, 2010 · 0 Comments ·

Dog days of summer. Hot weather. You just need a cold drink and some air conditioning, but you also need some good, comfortable shorts. Or plus size capris. Or something other than long pants, which just add to the problem of being HOT. So here are my favorite picks for keeping my legs cool.


Capri leggings. These cotton/spandex capris are what I like to wear for running around the house or out to the gym. So comfortable and very cool. I throw on a long t-shirt and I’m set.


Cotton knit shorts. I love soft comfortable shorts like these. The length is great, too. But not baggy like other plus-size shorts can be sometimes. I wear them with t-shirts and sandals on summer days when I’m not at work. They have an elastic waist for an easy fit, and pockets to hold your essentials. If you’re into a longer length, but still want some breathing room, the plus size cotton knit capris are another good option.


Lightweight Capri jeans. Now you might think I’m completely nuts, but these jeans really are lightweight cotton denim. And they are capri length, which always makes a difference (at least to me). So check them out as a cooler summer option … and hey, they’ll transition into cooler days really well.

So sit back with your lemonade and stay cool this summer!
