How to Wear High Waist Shorts: 9 Easy Styling Ideas!

I love a good pair of high-waist mom shorts.

They’re easy, perfect for summer, and once you know how to wear high waist shorts, they make great, casual outfits! And you know how I love my easy, go-to casual outfits.

These distressed denim shorts are currently one of my favorite pairs–this exact pair is sold out, but I linked to a super similar pair by the same brand, BlankNYC.

They’re extremely comfortable, stylish and have worn well over the past year. That’s especially imipressive since these are distressed shorts and distressed denim sometimes will rip or fall apart a little faster than other jean shorts.

They also run true to size, so go with your regular size!

I styled this pair of high waist shorts with a crop top. It’s a bit of a longer one, from Amazon, and I love the boxy fit.

Of course, you could also wear these high waist shorts with a body suit, cami or so many other tops! But this is one of my go-to every day styles.

I’ve also been living in these platforms as of late; they come in a TON of colors and are super comfortable for spring and summer! I love how they give you an extra bit of height and support without being uncomfortable.

  1. I love high waisted shorts, and I’m so glad they’re becoming more and more comfortable. Originally when they launched a few years ago, I feel like a lot of the denim was not forgiving in the slightest, so it’s really nice that this has changed. I own a few pairs that sometimes so expose my bootay but if I’m by the pool it’s ok! 🙂

  2. I love a good pair of high waisted shorts! They really work with evening out my extremely long torso and I love how they kinda suck you in! haha

  3. I love a good pair of high-waist anything. While I don’t tend to reach for cutoffs or shorties anymore, I’m glad I have some high-waist denim shorts on hand for whenever I want to feel more put-together. I like how you styled them with a cute, boxy crop top!
