Best denim shorts

I'm a die-hard jeans-and-tee kind of gal, but during sweltering summer months, I make the natural transition to denim shorts. However, I'm incredibly picky about the fit, so finding the perfect pair is somewhat of a challenge. Since I'm 5'10", I'm super conscious of the length of shorts, which can look minuscule on me and completely normal on someone else.

With that in mind, I decided to organize this roundup by length (but I also threw in a section on white shorts as well!). Whether you're looking for a pair of Daisy Dukes or something more modest, I think you'll find a fantastic option with great Nordstrom reviews. Scroll down to shop my favorite denim shorts at Nordstrom.
