Frugalista Finds: 25 Shorts and Skirts for P700 and Below

Great summer bottoms that won’t hurt your pocket! By Stephanie Castillo

Long, bronze limbs are perhaps the best assets to possess during the hot months; after all, who doesn’t appreciate a little leg-show? This is one of the biggest reasons why skin-baring shorts and thigh-skimming skirts are such a hit during the summer (aside from the sweltering temperatures, of course). Women are aware that their smooth, tanned stems are a gift—one that it would be a shame to hide.

Need your fix of shorts and skirts but a little low on cash? We’ve got the goods—and you won’t have to make a huge dent in your summer travel fund to acquire them. Below, you’ll find another edition of Frugalista Finds—a 25-item round-up of short bottoms for only P700 and below! Affordable apparel means no regrets, so don’t be shy—show off those legs!
