For a good 6 months out of the year, those of us who live in the Valley of the Sun live in shorts.
Since it's a mainstay in our wardrobes, it's important to make sure you're wearing the right styles; and you can do it without breaking the bank.
Outlet Shopping Gal Allison Treadwell shares the four top trends for 2012 and you can get these at 30 - 70% off retail at the Outlets at Anthem.
Bermudas in a hot color - we saw tangerine make a huge splash this year and the sunny shades haven't dulled their shine yet. The modest cut of Bermuda shorts make ideal for any setting but in a hot hue, they're anything but demure. Coral Bermuda shorts - Gap Outlet $12.99
Fabulously floral - Pick a pair with a pretty print and let them take all the attention. A fun and flirty floral is great for a summer picnic or an afternoon meetup with the gals. Floral print shorts - rue21 $22.99
Date night shorts - Who says you can't wear shorts out to dinner? Pick a dressy cut, add some strappy heels, and you're ready for a date night outing that'll have you turning heads (in a good way)! Trouser shorts - DKNY Company Store $22
Power pattern - Freshen up your warm weather wardrobe with creative patterns and colors. This season are prints to suit your every mood! Geometric blue patterned shorts - Ann Taylor Factory Store $25
