Who wear short shorts? Not me! With summer around the corner, it's truly time to ditch restricting pants and throw on some shorts. When I was younger, shorts were easy picks. But as I got older I am definitely more aware of the length. My best advice for how to wear denim shorts as an adult is to find ones that are long enough to cover your butt, comfortable enough to wear all day, and ones that aren't tight around the thighs.

I am taller (5'8") with long legs and thicker thighs so it has always been a challenge finding that "perfect fit". Even so, through the years I've found a few great pairs that would look great on anyone! Denim shorts are a crucial wardrobe component so I wanted to share the top four denim shorts I own. These shorts are truly amazing and literally look good on most body types!
These are the four I have on rotation.
Parker Vintage Cut Off Short AGOLDE
I LOVE these shorts. They are more loose-fit so I don't feel like my legs are constricted, and they are the perfect length so I don't feel like I'm constantly pulling them down.
• Relaxed fit (True to size)
Abercrombie & Fitch High Rise Mid-Length Denim Shorts
I love these high-waisted shorts! Not to mention, mid-length shorts are hard to do right, but Abercrombie does it well!
• Relaxed fit (if in between sizes, go up)
Boyfriend Denim Shorts
These are the perfect, relaxed-fit shorts that you'll be comfortable wearing all day long! They are true to size, but if you want a tighter fit, size down.

Levi’s 501 Slouch Denim Bermuda Short
Long shorts are the new short shorts! These Levi 501, long shorts aren't your mom's long shorts.
