Finding a new pair of jeans that fit you just right can be difficult, but finding a pair of jean shorts that fit and flatter can be an even harder task. It is important to find the right style for your body, but with all the options out there how do you choose? There are long shorts and short shorts, frayed bohemian jean shorts, and dark tailored shorts. Here are a few of my favorite styles to help you choose the right one for you!
1. Gap makes this classic pair of cut off dark denim short shorts. For a more flattering look try a dark denim (with no fading!) in a short short. I love to pair short shorts with a flowing, billowy top to counter the smaller bottoms. Try something in a floral or a cool graphic print. Find these shorts at Gap stores or online at Gap.com for $44.50.
2. These "Woodstock" faded jeans remind me of just that, the 70's. When wearing lighter denim try a longer style like this pair by Paige Denim. The frayed hem ads to the hippie chick feel. Pair these with a comfy t-shirt or a feminine plaid shirt for a dazed and confused look. Available on shopbop.com for $140.
3. For a more tailored look try these True Religion Brand "Jess" jeans in body rinse blue. I love the fold up cuff on these shorts, which gives them a sophisticated look. These shorts also come in two lighter washes, all available on
Nordstrom.com for $172.
