Love it or hate it, but we can’t deny it: shorts season is upon us. The hunt for shorts that fit well, don’t ride up, and are comfortable is a long and ongoing one—and, like clockwork, every summer I decide that I hate every pair I own and need new ones for the season.

Because of that, I tend to gravitate toward affordable shorts that I can wear and love for the summer, knowing I might be swapping them out next year. I scoured the internet for all of the best affordable shorts from some of our (and your) favorite stores—like Target, H&M, and Old Navy—along with some tried and true investment denim shorts from Madewell and Abercrombie.

We found the best pull-on shorts that are perfect for running errands or playing at the park with the kids, denim shorts for looking a little more put-together and casual family outings, and lounge and athletic shorts for workouts and chill days at home.
