If size doesn't matter to you, then at least, length should! If we want to wear a pair of shorts to make a statement, then let's be cautious of the statement we're making. Keep it as not too casual or revealing too much skin. If they aren't too short, nor too long, then that's the right length.
Allow me to share with you what I think is a safe thigh-baring look that could bring us places and make just the right statement for us. (please pardon that I employed a trying hard model and an equally trying hard photog.)

There you go. Perfect length can make the perfect statements! (still sulking :-))
