What Are Toddler Shorts?

Toddler shorts are short versions of pants. They are meant to keep kids cool during warm weather but continue to provide them with a layer of comfort and coverage. Toddler shorts come in a wide range of colors and styles, some of which have front and back pockets. 

Toddlers range in age from 12 months to 5 years old. After 12 months, sizes star at 2T, 3T, 4T, and so on. Once your child hits 5T and above, they are ready for an extra small size in regular boy’s clothing.

What Are Toddler Shorts Composed Of?

Toddler boy shorts can also be composed of linen, rayon, or seersucker material. These fabrics are thicker and are designed for more semi-formal or formal occasions and activities such as school, church, dinners, and other celebrations and gatherings. Because they are dressier materials, they work well with button down tops, vests, and blazers.
