We’re happy to report that it’s finally shorts weather! In case the sea of girls in their denim cutoffs at Coachella didn’t get you in the mood to dig yours out, maybe this will.
To ensure that you look your best in the summer staple, we made it our mission to seek out the most flattering pairs. To narrow it down, we searched for the most stellar pairs in five different categories, including angled hem, dark wash, and more.
Keep scrolling to shop our favorite flattering denim shorts before they sell out! (Because these definitely will.)
An angled hem (longer on the inside and shorter on the outside) makes your legs look longer by drawing the eye up.
A higher rise will elongate your legs and make your backside looks its best.
Not only will a longer inseam hit the leg at a slimmer place than short shorts would, but it will also always look polished and age-appropriate.
For the same reason that black is figure-flattering, a dark wash conceals and slims without fail.
With a relaxed-fit style, there’s an inherent slimming effect, thanks to the difference in proportions between your legs and the loose cut of the shorts.
