• Shorts are a garment worn by both men and women over their pelvic area,

circling the waist and splitting to cover the upper part of the legs, sometimes extending down to knee but not covering the entire length of the leg. They are called "shorts" because they are a shortened version of pants, which cover the entire leg.

• Shorts are typically worn in warm weather or in an environment where comfort and airflow are more important than the protection of the legs.
