The Shorts You Need for Summer

Summer has officially arrived, and we’re here for it!☀️ Say hello to boating, grilling, beaches and… drumroll please… shorts season. Shopping for shorts can be tricky, which is why we’ve rounded up our flattering favorites to help you find that elusive perfect pair.

We had a blast shooting these bestsellers on Abby—our rock-star Buying Team Coordinator here at HQ. She told us she tends to lean Team Skirts when it comes to summer-wear, so we (style) dared her to give shorts another shot—proving that with the right pair, everyone can love shorts!



These destructed denim cutoffs are our go-to shorts this season. The loose cut is so flattering—and keeps us from feeling too constricted in denim. Add the raw hem and light-wash, and we’re smitten.

These flattering chambray shorts are our favorite substitute for classic denim cutoffs. Lightweight and loose, they’re so soft you’ll want to wear them to bed—and the stripe of red on the side is exactly the fun twist we need.

With a little more give than denim, these camo shorts from Sanctuary are a fun option to spice up a tee or buttondown. The best part? The rolled hem is adjustable, so whatever length you feel the most comfortable in is what you’ll get.

Shorts just not your cup of tea? Here are our top picks for short-alternatives this summer:

Sundry Star Skirt: Weekend ready in star-spangled comfort. With this skirt’s flattering length and soft knit, its the easy chic piece we all need for hot summer days.

Allison Joy Split Front Crop: No knees? No problem. We love these breezy slit crop pants for those who opt for a little extra coverage. Plus: their pool-to-patio versatility is a huge win.

Kut From The Kloth Denim Skirt: The skirt that goes with everything. Go casual in sandals and a graphic tee, or dress it up with wedges and an off-the-shoulder top.
