True story: All I wore from ages 13 to 18 were short shorts from American Eagle. Nowadays, I'm not exactly jazzed about revealing, skin-tight denim shorts, so I look for much more relaxed styles, and they can sometimes be hard to find. The secret to my search is paying attention to the leg opening measurements, which are roughly around 25 inches or higher for looser fits and around 21 inches or lower for tighter styles.
Even though I appreciate a good pair of skinny jeans as much as the next person, I can't say the same for my shorts. Relaxed shorts are so much chiller and easier to wear in my opinion. So without further ado, scroll down to shop my favorite relaxed denim shorts on the market right now.
