Although denim shorts are definitely a summer wardrobe essential, they can be very hard to get right. It’s difficult to find a pair that fits well, is flattering, and most importantly, is comfortable to wear (no one wants to deal with constantly tugging them down, am I right?). And then once you do find a pair you love, they can be hard to style.

Personally, I am beyond thankful that the denim shorts that are on-trend this year are longer, more relaxed, and generally more comfortable to wear. I searched high and low to find the best jean shorts on the internet—and I rounded up five unique pairs that are editor-approved, reader favorites, and affordable, too.

Whether you want to stick to a classic look (like in outfit #5) or get out of your comfort zone and try something a little more trendy (like in outfit #3), these looks will help you to look cute and feel good in your denim shorts throughout the rest of the summer.
