If there’s one item that gets the most use throughout the summer months, it’s unquestionably a pair of denim shorts! I’m always keeping my eye open for new pairs I love, because it’s one wardrobe staple you’ll always need. So, I thought I’d share the 12 best denim shorts for summer that suit every body shape.

We all have our favorite pair that are worn on repeat, but you won’t regret having an alternative on hand to mix things up and keep your wardrobe interesting. I personally have multiple pairs including a few classic blue denim (both distressed and a clean finish), black denim and a fresh white denim, which I absolutely adore.

Like a good breezy dress or comfortable sandals, a great pair of denim jean shorts are essential for summer. It’s important to know, not all denim shorts are created equal – some come in itty-bitty lengths, others hit mid-thigh, some are a looser cut and some fitted through the thigh. You have your low rise shorts and high-waisted short styles too. It can all be very confusing! But I carefully look at them constantly and I’m going to share some tips and tricks that you need to know about jean shorts – plus, my top picks for the best denim shorts.
Three factors to keep in mind are style, fit and color. We’ll explore these…


It seems there are endless options of denim shorts these days, from distressed denim shorts, to frayed hem shorts, to rolled denim cuff shorts​. Each style is unique and versatile, easily dressed up or down with the right top and accessories.


The hottest new trend right now is longer denim shorts that hit just above the knee, like these distressed blue denim knee length shorts (LOVE them!) and these white denim knee length shorts. Depending on how you like your jean shorts to fit, there’s high-rise, mid-rise, low-rise, loose boyfriend-fit shorts and tighter pairs. There are so many different fits out there, so order a few different styles to try and you’re sure to find a pair that is flattering, comfortable and suits the occasion.


​Denim shorts are available in many colors, but most people stick to basic and neutral colors. The most popular denim short colors include classic blue denim shorts, black denim shorts and white denim shorts. I’ve also seen pastel colored shorts, such as these cute light pink denim shorts, or even bold prints like these leopard print denim shorts.
