Denim shorts are one of our staples for spring and summer. We have had some of you all request some that are a little longer than the short ones you see floating around, so we thought we would round up some of our favorites.


We usually opt for the shorter length, since we are on the shorter side (5’1″).

This pair (#1) is shorter and also has some stretch, so we love that they’re comfortable.

We just ordered this Agolde pair (#5) and went with a size 24. We are in between sizes 23 and 24 and just sized up for a looser fit. We love that they’re not overly distressed.

This Levis pair (#9) is a classic and fits true-to-size.

Mid Length

For more of a mid-length option, that is not super long, but not too short, we recommend this stretchy distressed pair (#2), which also happens to be affordable, too!

This darker pair (#6) is a great wash and not too distressed, so you can wear them with everything.

We actually just ordered #10 because they’re the newer version of the ones we had last year that we wore a ton. We have both sizes 24 and 25 in these.


If you want something even longer with some distressing on them, we recommend #3, and those are affordable, too!

With a little less distressing, we recommend pairs #7 and #11.

Bermuda Length

For shorts even longer that will hit you right above your knees, #4 is a good budget-friendly option. With a little less distressing, we love pairs #8 and #12.
