It’s time to break out the denim shorts again. How are yours looking? In search of a new pair for this spring and summer? I’ve highlighted 5 contenders for you, three of which, I personally own.

Romeo Rolled Cutoff Shorts
I have three pairs of the Romeo shorts in different washes and colors. They’re just the perfect washed look and I’m a fan of the button fly detail on them. I will say that I’m only 5’3″ (but with a bit of a booty) so they probably tend to look a little shorter on me. I think deciding on how fitted you want them will dictate how short they are. All that said, I bought mine last summer and still love them this year. I’ve thrown them on over my swimsuit, worn them with a tee shirt, and I also dress them up with some cute booties.
If you’re looking for a pair of relaxed denim shorts without a ton of distressing and that give good butt coverage, the Parker shorts are a great option. I’m wearing them both above and below in the photos just to give you an idea of how they fit. I love these for no-fuss days, when I don’t want to put a ton of effort into a look or I just plain want to be comfortable. I have the shorter ones, but they also come in a longer length as well.
501 Original Levi Shorts
There’s a reason Levi’s have been around for forever. They’re dependable, durable and classic. The original 501’s are your go-to shorts when you just want to be comfortable and look effortless. I love the lighter wash on these and the classic 5 pocket design.
American Eagle Denim Mom Shorts
I can’t even tell you the number of American Eagle denim shorts and jeans I’ve bought over the years! They’re always the brand I go to first for affordable, stylish denim each season. I love the relaxed fit of these mom style shorts and the fact that they have a good amount of stretch to them.
Abercrombie & Fitch Denim Mom Shorts
The past few years, I’ve really become a big shopper of the Abercrombie brand. They know my color palette, what can I say? Ha!
The thing I always love most about their denim is the wash and durability. It may just be me, but some brands just “get” the whole distressed wash thing and I really think Abercrombie does a great job with it. These denim mom shorts are no exception. They come in several washes and always sell like hotcakes each year.
Hope one of those styles ends up being the perfect pair for your lifestyle!
