It’s not too late to score some fantastic denim shorts to wear for the rest of the summer season! The most flattering styles often high-waisted, but we wanted to dig up a variety of silhouettes which will suit different tastes.

We’ve included both high-rise and mid-rise options on the roster, plus a selection of longer-length shorts which are just as figure-flattering as shorter picks. If you want to find your next pair of dreamy summer denim, check out our list below!
