These shorts will not make you blush or leave you in a pool of sweat on a hot day.

These shorts are also available in cornflower blue, light almond and pearl pink. They are designed to sit lower on your waist and have loops for a belt. The shorts have spandex, so they stretch easily, but they still look beautiful. There are two pockets in the front and two pockets in the back.
