I have finally found the holy grail of jean shorts. Believe me when I say- I rarely wear denim shorts because they just NEVER seem to fit me right, and I know a lot of women out there are reading this and shaking their heads in agreement with me. Look no further though ladies, because I have found the ultimate source of perfect denim shorts! On our recent trip to Hawaii (several other outfit inspo blog posts and two posts- one per island- are also on the blog under “shopping” and “travel”), I put my new jean shorts to the test and they did not disappoint!
For reference, I am 5’3 and about 130lbs. I am on the shorter side and I love high waist jeans to pair with a crop top BUT I hate when they give you “johnny long bottom” as I describe it. I can safely say that none of the below shorts give that awful appearance! I wear a 25 or small for reference in these styles!
Cruz High Rise Shorts– the perfect amount of fray and only two buttons. I HATE when jeans or shorts have 5+ buttons, it takes going forever to go to the bathroom and it gives the most awful pooch in the world
Elva High Rise Shorts– I wore these at Disney World and absolutely love the fold-over seam at the bottom!
Backroad Songs High Waist– I love that these shorts offer three washes- the lighter denim is my personal favorite and for less than $45- they are a steal for high-quality denim shorts!
I will be adding to this list as I find more options during the spring and summer months! I also know these items go FAST so make sure to order quickly if you are wanting them! Happy shopping everyone!
What shorts are you wearing in this pic? Clicked your links and they didn’t seem like the same shorts and I love how these look sooo much.
