If you've got great gams, why not show them off in a true feminine fashion? Super-feminine shorts, with lots of lace, silk and floral accents, are guaranteed to keep your legs cool this summer (while heating up those around you). This look can be dressed up with gauzy blouses and heels, or you can keep it casual with a plain T-shirt and sandals.
