Best Shorts for Women: 7 Pairs Our Team Loves
Shopping for shorts can be really hard! Rarely do product photos show us what we’ll look like when they arrive. So I think shorts are a particularly good topic to ask your friends. Which is most suitable? Which is the most comfortable? When it comes to styling options, which shorts are versatile?
Today, I’m sharing seven of our team’s tried-and-true pairs of shorts.
I hope this makes the shopping experience easier for anyone who is shopping for shorts this summer!
Navy high-collar blended linen shorts
Recommend from: Bridgette, Brand Manager and Erin, New Sales Manager
$25, currently on sale for $14
Bridgette: I was looking for a pair of shorts that I could wear with a t-shirt or tank top and not feel constrained or constrained. I bought these in flax and railway stripe style. In my opinion, the shorts fit just right and are very comfortable (in the best ways). I like the unstructured, effortless look.
Erin: I like that these are a more fitted style and they go well with just about anything. In my opinion, they run a bit big.
Levi’s high-waist shorts
Recommended by: Kate
I have a couple of vintage pieces Levi’s (very similar to the ones linked here) I’ve been wearing it for years and love and cherish. My favorite pair is three sizes larger than I usually wear; they’re roomy and breathable while still giving me a nice butt lift — the hallmark of a great pair of Levi’s.
Banana Republic Factory Stretch Linen-Blend Shorts
Recommended by: Greta, Content Creator
$60, currently on sale for $36 – $42
I like the comfort and flexibility of these shorts! The length is really nice and they are both great to wear up or down. I like to wear them over a swimsuit or dress them up a bit with a fun cap and heels. I also love having the option of adding a belt! The quality is also great, so I know they will last summer after summer.
H&M Mom high-waist denim shorts
Recommended by: Kate
I love the cut of these H&M’s Denim Shorts. They have a high waist and I find them really flattering. I bought a black denim laundry set last summer and now have two additional sets of laundry. Stock is low at the moment but if you’re interested, sign up for their “notify me” option, as H&M clothing sometimes returns to stock!
Outdoor Voice Moves freely 6 inch shorts
Recommended by: Jackie, Editorial Director
It’s a sports shorts of the group. They are suitable for both workouts and sweaty casual days. I like the high waist and the length a bit more — I find that they don’t sag or increase during the workout, both of which are important factors to me. They also have a hidden front pocket that I rely on to store my apartment keys while running outdoors. They fit my size and come in eight color options, of which I have two!
H&M’s Pull-On Linen-Blend Shorts
Recommended by: Nancy, Executive Assistant
I love the length of these shorts and fabric. They are stylish, comfortable and very easy to wear up and down!
Banana Republic Factory pull-on Linen-Blend shorts
Recommended by: Greta
$50, currently on sale for $30 – $35
Similar to the shorts from Banana Republic Factory that I featured above, these t-shirt shorts Very comfortable and flexible when styling. Quality is also really good. These shorts have a really nice silhouette and look taller, even with a simple t-shirt or tank top.
