All The Fringe

With warmer weather around the corner, it’s the perfect time to start planning your go-to spring and summer styles. I’ve always been a jean shorts junkie. I love the versatility and comfort factor. With so many different styles available this year, there’s literally a pair for everyone.

Here are a few details to keep in mind when choosing:

1. Inseam. Be sure there’s enough length to give you the kind of coverage you’re comfortable with. I’m gravitating toward a longer inseam this season and that’s reflected in some of my style choices below.

2. Rise. Like jeans, denim shorts range from low to high rise. I prefer mid…. Find what works for you.

3. Fit. Are they relaxed, tight, boyfriend? 100% cotton or with stretch? Jean shorts tend to look better on the looser side. Leaving some room between your thigh and the shorts has a slimming effect.

Here are a few of my current favs:

Agolde Micah

AGOLDE Micah Boyfriend $128, Assembly Showroom
This brand is now a go-to for jean shorts and I can’t wait to try these on. A 4-inch inseam makes them super wearable. Add them to your try-on sesh at Assembly.

Agolde Parker

AGOLDE Parker in Swapmeet $128, Assembly Showroom
Must-have! These just might be the perfect jean short. Everything about them works—the length, the rise, the fit. Arriving at Assembly Showroom soon. Reserve yours now.


Moussy Vintage Kelley Distressed Denim Shorts $230,
Loving this Japanese denim brand. These shorts have a bit of an a-line cut, giving you nice definition at the waist and a looser fit in the leg.

Frame Le Brigette $165,
Another option with a “generous” inseam of 3.25” and some stretch. Frame is a high quality brand that won’t let you down.

Agolde Rumi

AGOLDE Rumi $128,
These are basically denim Bermudas and they’re super cute. The inseam is almost 7 inches, so you’re getting great coverage but still have a jean-short look. I’d wear these with wedges or heels for a night out. Exclusive on

Citizens Marlow

Citizens of Humanity Marlow Easy Shorts $198,
If you’re looking for a longer short, these are for you. The 3.5-inch inseam provides a little more coverage, while the side slits add a nice detail.
