Hello Beautiful Friends!
I did a thing. I ordered over 10 pairs of jean shorts to see if I could find that perfect pair for my body that would be flattering and feel good. After testing them all out, guess how many of them I kept? If you said 0, you would be correct. I did not keep a single pair. So let’s talk about that – Jean shorts are this universally known summer staple, right? Sure. But I can tell you based on my research that they are not the end all be all of summer staples and there are other FABULOUS alternatives to jean shorts if they just simply don’t work for your body. The styles I tried varied as well as the brands. Many of the brands are those whose jeans I love to wear and swear by: AG, AGOLDE, Paige, Frame, Good American, etc. My common fit issue with the shorts is that they end up being too big in the waist if they fit nicely in the butt and thigh. Some of them were also 100% cotton, take the AGOLDE Parker short a lot of people just love. That means no stretch and that does not work for my shape. There were a few that fit nicely, like the Good American’s and the Paige Jax, but they were a bit longer and I just didn’t feel good about how they looked on me. They just leave me feeling meh when I can feel a lot better in something else.
Side note: if you rock the jean shorts – you go girl!!! Some women look awesome in them and that is great!
Whether you like jean shorts or not, if you are looking for some alternatives, I’m here to share some of my favorites that will keep you cool all summer long.
