How To: Pick the best denim shorts for your bod

Summer is the season of denim shorts. They’re comfy, cute and go with just about everything. You can dress them up or down, and even wear them to the beach. But denim shorts are no fun if you’re not wearing the right pair for your bod! We’ve got the best styles for all different shapes.

 

Short Legs:

If you’ve got shorter gams, you should wear denim shorts that hit at the middle of your thigh. Too long and they’ll make you look even shorter. The perfect pair should make your legs look longer! You can even pair them with wedges to elongate your stems even more!

Ruler

Pick a pair that will create some curves for ya! A high-waisted pair will draw attention to your waist and break up your shape. Don’t forget to add a bright belt!

Petite

For teeny tiny ladies, cropped light colored denim shorties are perfect for your frame. The light color is fresh, fun, and won’t weigh ya down!

Athletic

You work hard for those awesome legs of yours, so you should totally show ’em off! Pick a great pair that’s cut short (but not too short!) and simple. Be proud of those killer legs!

Curvy

Work those amazing curves, girl! Accentuate your waist by tucking in your top and adding a fun belt. A dark wash is sleek-ifying—but make sure the shorts hit at the smallest point on your thigh. This’ll make your legs look like they go on for miles!

Pear

Stick to no-fuss denim shorts. Avoid too many details like rips or slant pockets that pucker. Pick a clean and classic pair with straight legs.  A cute cuff will draw attention to your legs and away from your hips. They’ll look so fab on you!
