Who said it was okay to wear casual shorts as a tourist in a big city? Nobody. So why are you wearing them?
You know who you are. I estimate your age as between 30 and 60.
Women older than that left their gardening clothes at home and wore pants or even a dress. They (me too) were born in an age when "appropriate" was part of the dress code. Those habits die hard.
Younger women? My personal opinion about what to wear in a city will be irrelevant; I understand.

By shorts I don't mean “city shorts”, those to-the-knee-ish, tailored shorts. I never saw anyone wearing them. I saw instead a sea of full-on in-your-backyard short shorts.
|City shorts never caught on.|
Are you older than 30? It’s time to grow up. Shorts are fine at home. We live in casual times, and summer is a little hot for yoga wear. But a city is a city, and they don't get any more "city" than Washington, DC.
For once men out-dressed the women. Men in suits were everywhere. And there were well-dressed women of many ages. Of course these people were all government workers or diplomats or presidential candidates. I could tell they weren't tourists because they walked fast.
