I just don't know if I'm going to be wearing shorts anymore, except around the house. I'm in my 40s, and I have a big mess of spider veins on my left thigh. My legs are shapely enough, but even with that, you cannot do the short shorts at my age. My legs are also super pale.

People respond to me better when I wear the cropped, flowy pants. So that might be the direction I head in in summer, we'll see.

I feel like everyone has something to say about this. Do you wear shorts at all? If so, are they super short? Or more bermuda style?

What are your thoughts and advice about wearing shorts, if any?
