Out of all of summer's basics, shorts are easily the trickiest to style. Really, your options are to go the conservative route with a longer, Bermuda-style pair or opt for short shorts, which usually means a choice between athletic shorts and cut-offs. But this week, Anne Hathaway took a cue from her Devil Wears Prada persona and thought up another option that effortlessly merged the elegance of a longer short with the length of a shorter one. Even better, she paired it with low-key sandals and Valentino's next It bag. 

Following lunch at Sant Ambroeus, a beloved Milanese restaurant in New York City's SoHo neighborhood, the actor headed outside to hail a cab, and in the process, showcased her easy, summer shorts look. Specifically, Hathaway chose a white, slightly ruched button-down shirt with a pair of breezy shorts that featured slits up both sides. As for accessories, she wore oversize, tortoiseshell sunglasses from Bvlgari, Dolce & Gabbana flat sandals, and a hot pink One Stud Valentino bag that J.Lo only just wore on her honeymoon

Naturally, after spotting a look this good, I went on a search for short shorts that compared. Keep scrolling to shop the pairs I rounded up.
