From Beyonce to Ariana Grande, high-waisted denim shorts are a serious summer staple — and we’ve rounded up the best ways for you to rock the look, just like these stylish stars. SHOP!
Who wears short shorts? All of our favorite celebs — and now you can, too! From Ariana Grande to Beyonce, the denim shorts are getting higher — and we’re totally loving the look. Whether you’re heading to the beach, brunch, a BBQ or date night, you can easily rock the trend.
High-waisted denim shorts are actually quite easy to wear — and it totally balances out the crop top trend, if you want to rock a shorter shirt with a pair of shorts. While stars often opt for short shorts, you can easily select a looser, longer silhouette. The most wearable? We recommend a short that hits mid-thigh or a little higher — and pay extra attention to the fit. Owning the look really rests on finding the perfect fit for your body type — you don’t want to be worried about the waistband digging into your side or the hemline rising up!
Ariana rocked her high-waisted, crochet denim with a halter top backstage at a concert, while Queen Bey took to social media to show off her all-denim-everything look, which included distressed denim shorts — and the best thing about their outfits was that it proved the trend works so well on so many different body types. We love the way Ariana added a feminine twist to the look with the festival-ready crochet detailing — and you can SHOP her Missguided pair here for $40
While you can easily dress down the trend, (like these stars did!), you can also dress it up, too. I love the way a tucked-in button-down shirt and a boyfriend blazer looks — it’s a great way to juxtapose the high waist and the leggy silhouette. Add a pair of ankle-strap sandals and you can easily go from casual to chic in no time — and it’s great for a hot night out!
Sometimes we’re quick to write off a certain trend without actually giving it a chance, but it’s time to embrace the high-waisted denim short. In a slew of shapes and washes, it’s easier than you think to find the right style.
