Why is finding the perfect pair of denim shorts SO DANG HARD?! They are either too tight, too short or dare I say it too distressed. All you want is the cute, relaxed, casual beach outfit and instead, you spend most of the day tugging at your shorts instead of being comfortable. I rounded up the best denim shorts for (almost) everybody type so that hopefully this summer you can find your perfect pair.

1. Overall Best Selling Denim Shorts: AGolde Parker Denim Shorts

Best Denim Shorts For Women

Over the past few years, these shorts have exploded in popularity! Women have fallen in love with the style and quality plus this style of shorts seems to fit most body types. Reviewers claim that they aren’t too short either which can be difficult to find.

These shorts tend to sell out incredibly fast though, which shows just how popular they are. Nordstrom and Revolve tend to come back in stock the quickest and have the most sizes/ colors available. 

2. Best Cut-off Denim Shorts: Abercrombie High Rise Mom Short

Best Cut Off Denim ShortsThese shorts come in 8 different washes and have a frayed hem. They are perfect for a day at the beach! They don’t stretch, keep their shape, and have amazing reviews! The only complaint is depending on your body type,they can be a little “cheeky,” especially if you have a larger behind. They do run true to size.

They are just under $60 and always go on sale! 


3. Best High Waisted Denim Shorts:  Levi Ribcage Shorts

Best High Waisted Denim Shorts

Can you ever go wrong with a classic pair of Levis? With a 12 inch rise, these shorts are sure to fit your high-rise needs, after all, they are called “rib-cage” for a reason!  They are super slimming, come in over 5 washes, and have a small frayed hem. However, most reviewers do say to go up a size as they tend to run small. 

4. Best Denim Shorts For Thick Thighs: Abercrombie Curve Love Shorts

Best Denim Shorts For Thick Thighs

These shorts have blown up in popularity since the spring! They are said to be the perfect short if you struggle with larger thighs. I linked the “high rise mom short” above, however, there are a ton of different Curve Love styles now including a Dad Short, Mid- Rise, Boyfriend Cut, and now in regular jeans as well! 

I personally find that Abercrombie jeans run small and I always go up at least one size depending on the style.

5. Best Jeans Shorts For Tummy Control: Apt 9 Tummy Control Shorts

With close to 1000 reviews, women are giving these tummy control shorts high praise! They have an extra-wide waistband with a bit of stretch. They come in 3 washes and right now they are on sale for just $25!

6. Best Denim Shorts For Petites: Frame Le Cutoff Shorts

Best Denim Shorts For Petites

These shorts do come with a higher price tag, but women claim over and over again that it is worth it! They are incredibly high quality and made with a super soft fabric. They do have a bit of stretch which is why they are so great for petite women. The one catch is most reviewers said they had to try a variety of sizes before finding the perfect fit. Make sure to read the reviews for yourself to find which size you are or try them on in person. 

7. Best White Denim Shorts: Madewell High Rise Denim Shorts In Tile White

Best White Denim Shorts

First, I am the biggest fan of Madewell denim! Any Madewell item has lastest me years and these shorts I am sure will be no exception! I personally have these jeans in tile white, and the shade is a “true white.” They have a 10 1/2 inch rise and are made with comfort stretch which ensures a great and super flattering fit.

Unfortunately, they do tend to run out of sizes quickly due to their popularity. Check out Nordstrom, if Madewell doesn’t have your size, and check back frequently as they try to re-stock! 

8. Best Denim Shorts For Big Butts: Free People Curvy High Rise Short

Best Denim Shorts For Big Butts

Upon my search for shorts for big butts, these came up over and over again! Reviewers all gave these shorts the highest praise. They are under $80 and run true to size. 

9. Best Bermuda Shorts: Good American Frayed Hem Bermuda Shorts

Best Bermuda Shorts

Finding the perfect Bermuda short can be incredibly tricky, but these have a universally flattering fit. 

Pair these with a loose t-shirt and sandals for a casual day out or with a fitted bodysuit for an elongating look. 

10. Best Madewell Denim Shorts: The Momjean Short

Best Madewell Denim Shorts

If you couldn’t tell from my post above, I love Madewell denim and thought that it deserved its own category. These mom jean shorts are known to be the best Madewell shorts due to their A-line shape. They are high rise but know that they have no stretch. 

They do run big, however, so size down!

11. Best Levi Denim Shorts: 501 Original Shorts

Best Levi Denim Shorts

These are the classic pair of shorts that you have been looking for! They do not ride up, which is a must-have, and have a fit that “hugs you in all the right places.”  They do tend to run true to size, but I would read the reviews for your body type before ordering. 

12. Most Affordable Denim Shorts: AE Denim Mom Short

Most Affordable Denim Short

Everyone needs a great pair of inexpensive shorts that they can throw on. These are them! Normally they are just under $60, but they are ALWAYS on sale! Right now they are just $45. The reviews are amazing and they come in several different washes. 

13. Best Belted Jean Shorts: HM Denim Paper Bag Shorts

Best Belted Jean ShortIf you always want to be wearing the latest trends then these shorts are the perfect pair for you! They are only $3o too if you are just looking to try this style out. They have amazing reviews and the belt is removable.

14. Best Denim Shorts On Amazon: Luvamia Women’s Casual Denim Shorts

Best Amazon Denim Shorts

Of course, I had to throw in a “best of Amazon category.” These shorts have close to 20k reviews with a 4.2-star rating and 44 different washes!! 

15. Best “Mom” Denim shorts: Levis Mid Length Shorts

Best Mom Denim Shorts

These mid-rise shorts give you the perfect coverage with the right amount of stretch without becoming baggy by the end of the day. What more could you want in a pair of shorts?! They come in 4 different washes and are said to run true to size. 

 What is your go-to pair of summer shorts?
