5+ Shorts We’re Wearing this Spring

March 16, 2022


Team LIY

We get it. Shopping for shorts can be SO tricky! They’re either too tight around the thighs and squeeze your legs like a busted can of biscuits, or so short – even Daisy Duke would blush. And there’s no in-between. The struggle is real, my friends! That’s why today, the LIY Team is sharing 5+ Pairs of Shorts We’re Actually Wearing this Spring – scout’s honor. Shave those legs, girlfriend [or don’t if that’s your thing – no judgement here!] and get ready to slip into some shorts! ‘Tis almost the season!

PS. If you prefer to shop by inseam, we rounded up the best denim shorts by inseam – on women heights 5’4″ to 6′, right this way!

Erin’s Top Picks

Kut from the Kloth Jane Shorts

Shorts [true to size, wearing in 4] // Tank [true to size, wearing in small] // Sandals [size up .5]

My type of summer outfit — give me a simple tank + a great pair of shorts + my go-to sandals and I’m set! Anybody else all about the basics in the warmer months?

Liverpool Los Angeles Frayed Hem Shorts

Bodysuit [true to size, wearing in XS but could do small, CODE “LIYFREE” FOR FREE SHIPPING OR “LIY10” FOR 10% OFF] // Shorts [true to size, wearing in 4] More sizes available here! // All Liverpool shorts // Sneakers [TTS]

The shorts of your dreams. And my dreams, definitely the shorts of my dreams. We took Liverpool’s high quality, super comfortable, stretch denim and brought them to you in a pair of shorts that you will want to live in all summer long. They have a frayed hem to bring a little bit of youth to them while giving you just enough coverage to be comfortable! Fit Tip: True to size, I am wearing in size 2. These are a hi-rise with a 3 1/2″ inseam.

Free People Makai Shorts

Shorts [size up if in between, wearing in 27] // Similar Sneakers

These are the Free People shorts I’ve been wearing / loving for years now! They are a 4-inch inseam and have the perfect amount of distressing! Size up if in between, wearing in 27.

Claire’s Pick: Kut from the Kloth

Shorts [TTS, size up if in between wearing 8] // Tee [TTS, wearing medium] // Sandals [TTS, size up .5 if in between]

My favorite denim shorts of the season! I love the relaxed fit and easy to wear style! These fit true to size [wearing my usual size 8 here!] but I would suggest sizing up if in between!

Cassidy’s Pick: Madewell

Madewell Relaxed Mid-Length Denim Shorts // Madewell Bandana 

I always prefer a longer inseam and a relaxed fit. I hate tight shorts, yup, I said it. I was so happy to find these shorts and actually feel comfortable! – Size down one!

Lauren’s Pick: Abercrombie & Fitch

Shorts [TTS] // Tee [TTS] // Sandals [size up .5]

These black shorts are the perfect high rise and not too tight on my thicker [size 10ish]  thighs!

Katy’s Pick: Abercrombie & Fitch

Abercrombie Mid Rise Mom Shorts [size up if in between, wearing 26] 

Shorts are HARD, right?! Ugh. These have been my go-to for awhile now and I feel like they go with everything!
