When seeing someone outside on a cold day wearing shorts, we’ve all asked the question “How in the world can they wear shorts on a day like this?”. A new survey asked what temperature is “shorts weather”. See if you agree with the results.

What is the right temperature for "shorts weather"?

25% – the best “shorts weather” was a temperature between 61 and 70

23% – Between 71 and 80 came in a close second

8% of people say 41 to 50 is shorts weather and 6% say they would wear shorts when it’s between 31 and 40. 4% apparently aren’t sensitive to cold at all saying they would wear shorts outside when it’s below 20. On the other end of the scale, 7% won’t go to the shorts til the temp is 80 or above.
