If you’re anything like me finding the perfect pair of denim shorts is no easy task! As someone who played sports for most of my life my athletic build creates quite the challenge when searching for shorts. After a few orders and returns I’m giving y’all all the scoop on the infamous Abercrombie Mom Short and a surprising pair I love from Old Navy believe or not. I love trying new styles and trends so price point definitely played a role in the denim shorts I tested and these all have a reasonable tag.
Old Navy has been my favorite place for denim shorts and continues to keep me hooked! The fit of their shorts always offers me a flatter fit while still feeling comfortable. The black pair I’m wearing in the photo above are actually this pair from last season and I seam ripped the cuff and then cut them off myself with scissors. They hit right below my belly button giving a flattering feel. I love how they have a natural cut off seam after washing and the length is honestly perfect for my legs. They have enough length to not ride up and just enough to still give my legs a flattering length. Not to mention the price point is ideal to get plenty of wear even if you only have them for one summer. Hands down my most recommend denim shorts are from Old Navy and these are next on my list!
Abercrombie shorts have been a serious pain point for me as I searched for the best denim shorts. The white 4 inch mom short seen above made the cut but solely because the white denim gives them a more flattering look and feel. I tried the same 4 inch mom short on here in black and deemed them as a miss for a few reasons. The button fly really accentuated the high waist which I didn’t find flattering on my body type. The length was a tiny bit too long for my legs which accentuated the larger part of my thighs where as the white pair comes up a tad higher in the front compared to the black pair. Overall I do like the white mom short from abercrombie but I wouldn’t purchase them again. This style is much more flattering on tall, long leg ladies in my opinion. I sized up in both the white & black mom shorts and both are the curve love fit.
