My Favorite Denim Shorts Guide | AGOLDE Jean Shorts, Abercrombie, and More

Since we are just about full-on into summer, I've been living in denim shorts and wanted to do a deep dive on some of my favorite styles. From shorty, mid-length, and bermuda, to ripped and non-ripped, light wash, and medium wash, there is definitely something for everyone! Below six styles are my favorite and most worn. Some are fairly new while others are tried and true.  These are definitely styles I continue to wear season after season. Don't forget to check out my denim jacket guide and favorite denim jeans guide!

Editor's Note: I'm 5'10 and my normal jean size is 25.

Everlane Denim Shorts

You already know my love for Everlane runs deep, so of course when I found out about their two newest denim shorts I had to try them out ASAP. The more classic denim shorts are a great basic to have and I love the option to roll or unroll them depending on how you prefer to style that day. The 90s cheeky shorts, the longer pair featured, is a great style for those that want extra length. Both pairs of Everlane denim shorts have a raw hem and can be worn rolled or unrolled.

  • 100% Cotton - no stretch
  • Inseam: 8" (unrolled) - button fly

Abercrombie Denim Shorts

After last year Abercrombie quickly became on of my favorite places for on-trend denim. During the fall and winter months I couldn't get enough of their jeans, and as soon as spring/summer rolled around, the same held true for their denim shorts. This season I picked up two new pairs that I practically live in! The first pair is their regular fit shorts which run true to size and are a great pair of raw hem jean shorts. The second pair is from their curve love line, which features and extra 2" through the hips. I sized up in this pair so I could have a more relaxed fit which also makes them so comfortable!

Abercrombie - Mid Rise Boyfriend Shorts

  • Wash: Light Ripped Wash
  • 100% Cotton - no stretch
  • Inseam: 3 5/8" - zipper fly
  • Fit TTS - wearing a 25

Abercrombie - Curve Love Mid Rise Boyfriend Shorts

  • Wash: Light Destroyed Wash
  • 100% Cotton - no stretch
  • Inseam: 3 5/8" - zipper fly
  • Fit TTS - I sized up for relaxed fit (size 26)

AGOLDE Denim Shorts

Are AGOLDE denim shorts worth the hype? 100% yes. My first pair of AGOLDE denim shorts were the Parker in the wash swapmeet which I bought over two years ago. They are definitely my most worn and lived-in pair. AGOLDE Parker shorts sizing is pretty straight forward as they do fit true to size. However, since they are on the shorter size and I'm 5'10, I opted to size up for a more relaxed fit, which I'm so glad I did! Since they are 100% cotton the AGOLDE Parker shorts will stretch out, but after wash/dry, they recover to the original fit. My newest pair of AGOLDE denim shorts are the AGOLDE Dee Super High Rise. They are fairly similar to the Parker but have a longer inseam and are high rise. This style does run small though, so you definitely need to size up! If you're wondering about AGOLDE Jaden vs. Parker denim shorts are pretty much the same; the Jaden is basically the high rise version of the Parker. The AGOLDE Rumi pair is next on my list to buy!

AGOLDE - Parker Vintage Cutoff Shorts

  • Wash: Swapmeet
  • 100% Cotton - no stretch
  • Inseam: 2 1/2" - button fly
  • Fit TTS - I sized up for relaxed fit (size 26)

    The Abercrombie mid-lengths are something I need to get. I like how it’s frayed.
