Mom Jean Shorts Are So Flattering, and Here's Why

We love a good pair of cutoffs as one of the quintessential summer and vacation staples, but if you feel like you’ve outgrown the short shorts or just want a (slightly) more put-together pair, why not go for a pair of mom jean shorts? If you’re a fan of the jean style of the same title, then you’ll love the summer take on the look.

Be it fashion’s love for anything that nods to the ’80s or just the love of all things denim, a pair of these shorts will be one of the only pieces you’ll reach for this summer. The throwback style stands apart because of its high cut, accentuating your waist, and offering a bit more coverage—perfect with a cropped tee.

Ready to start shopping? We’ve rounded up our favorites to wear as a part of your warm-weather wardrobe. Wear them with a chic one-piece swimsuit or sport the classic jean short–and-tee look that you know will never go out of style. Check them out now.
