Spring is HERE and summer is right around the corner, so I thought now would be the perfect time to talk about a seasonal closet staple: DENIM SHORTS! Finding the “perfect pair” of jean shorts can be a full-blown task… We don’t want them too tight, but we don’t want them too loose either. We don’t want them too short (camel-toe alert!), but we don’t want them too long either (bermuda shorts alert!). The COLOR of denim is also a big factor for me when I purchase jean shorts. So with that said, today I’m sharing The BEST Denim Shorts I Own, and hopefully this can serve as a guide for the next time you’re in need of a new pair of pretty jorts. 😉

1. Target High-Rise Frayed Hem Jean Shorts

I feel like a broken record with these, but for good reason y’all! You CANNOT beat a pair of good-quality (and stupid cute) denim shorts for only $15!!! If you haven’t hopped on the bandwagon, YOU’RE MISSING OUT! I would say they run TTS, but my only complaint is that they have some extra fabric in the crotch area. Other than that, these are incredible! || Wearing size 2 || Linking 3 colors below + check out more styled photos HERE.


2. Southern Shirt Not Your Mama’s Denim Shorts

Prepare yourself, because this is the most comfortable you will ever feel in a pair of denim shorts. They’re the most LIVEABLE shorts I’ve ever owned and a perfect mix between cute and comfy. I love how they can be styled up – like I did in the photo – or styled down with a t-shirt! I mean, who DOESN’T want their denim shorts to have an elastic waistband? If you’re in-between sizes I suggest sizing down! || Wearing size Small


3. Abercrombie High Rise Mom Shorts

This is my most recent purchase of denim shorts, and I. Cannot. Get. Enough. I originally thought the Target shorts I listed above were a good dupe for my Agolde shorts (shown below) until I bought these. They fit so well, they’re a little bit stretchy, and they come in several colors (I’m wearing “Light Ripped Wash”)! This pair is on the shorter side, but they also come in a 4″ version (linked below) that I already have in my cart! SO GOOD, Y’ALL! || Wearing size 26R


4. Agolde Parker Vintage Cut-Off Shorts

This is the most I’ve ever spent on a pair of denim shorts (or shorts in general for that matter). But you guys, they are gold. I love that they’re considered to be more of a relaxed-fit so that I’m not constantly tugging at them. They’re high-waisted, the color is PERFECT, and the distressing makes them look a little edgy without being over-the-top. To top it all off, the quality is UH-mazing. I know they’ll last (and be one of my favorites) for many years to come. I’d recommend sizing down 1 size in these. I’m usually a 26 and ended up purchasing a size 24. Now I wish I would have gotten the 25s! || Wearing size 24


Tell me your favorite pair of denim shorts in a comment below! I’m always looking to add to my “best-of-the-best” collection!
