I wear these denim shorts all summer long! This pair was a bit of a splurge as far as shorts go, but I’ve had them for 2-3 years now and they are my most-comfortable and most-worn pair, so to me, it’s worth it. To me, denim shorts scream casual, laid-back and summertime, so I threw together 4 different ways to style your favorite pair, plus a few different options for great pairs at different price points.
4 Ways to Wear Denim Shorts
Best Denim Shorts Options
- AGOLDE Parker Vintage Loose Fit Denim Cutoff Shorts: My go-to pair! I love the distressed and the length is good, not too short for moms!
- AGOLDE Parker Long Loose Vintage Shorts: similar style to mine, but not as distressed, and a bit longer! I actually have my eye on these because I wouldn’t mind something a little bit longer.
- Abercrombie High Rise Mom Shorts: Love the look of these and love AF denim!
- The Way-High Denim Shorts: These had great reviews and look super cute and simple!
Boho Top and Jean Shorts
For cooler nights, or something that feels a bit more pulled together, I love pairing my shorts with a more full top with boho vibes. It still has that effortless, summer feel to it, but also feels a bit more dressed up. I paired it with these slides that I got earlier this year. I have been wearing them like crazy—so comfortable and no break-in time which is the actual best!
Slouchy Tee and Jean Shorts
You can’t go wrong with jean shorts and a simple t-shirt. I love this one that’s a bit oversized, slouchy and boxy. I threw on a belt so it defined the wait and sneakers because they’re my favorites. This is a perfect outfit for those days I’m with my boys all day, but still want to feel pulled together and cute.
Military Jacket and Jean Shorts
Backyard bbq or patio drinks? This is perfect! I tend to get chilly as the sun goes down, so having this light jacket on hand is perfect for those nights, and if I get too cold, a simply cami or tank underneath is perfect.
Sweatshirt and Jean Shorts
Lastly, a classic comfy outfit that’s perfect for the weekend! We have started our morning coffee walks on the weekend now that Jack has dropped that nap, and we’ve had a few mornings that are a bit chilly (!!!!!). I love this sweatshirt so much, it’s longer than most and cozy, but not too heavy.
The trick with making a sweatshirt look more chic is the front tuck and push the sleeves up a bit!
