How to style womens denim shorts
One of my favorite things about jean shorts is how versatile they are. Dress them up with a blazer and heels or keep it relaxed with sneakers and a tee. I actually cut the back of these denim cut off shorts to make them shorter as they had a high low hem and the back was too long.

What are the jean short trends for 2023
These are the top 2023 jean shorts trends:
- Short shorts as seen at Versace, Saint Laurent and Chanel. This season it’s on to be a little cheeky.
- Printed womens designer denim shorts as seen at Etro and Versace. I tend to feature Versace a lot on Glamour and Gains as its Donatella’s styles tend to be more glamorous and feminine. I’ve always been a fan of the gold safety pins, and Trésor print.
- Undone hems on both jeans and jean shorts.
- Patchwork denim shorts and matching blazers as seen at Dolce & Gabbana.
- Longer length fitted denim shorts for women as seen at Balmain.
- Denim on denim as seen as Dolce & Gabbana. Grab your denim bustier, shirt or jacket and matching D & G patchwork denim slide sandals to complete your head to toe denim look.

Womens blue jean shorts edit 2023
Classic blue denim jean shorts for women are a wardrobe staple that you can pull out year after year. Personally I love ones with usable pockets, that are higher waisted and have a zipper not buttons to make them quicker and easier to get on and off with nails.
White Jean shorts edit
I never thought I was a white denim short kind of girl but there’s one high waisted pair on this list that are more tailored that I really like. Plus white goes with everything and is perfect for Summer and July 4th parties.
I’ve added white jean shorts from denim cut off shorts to longer lengths for full booty coverage, high, mid and low waisted, distressed to tailored at all price points so there’s a cute stylish pair for everyone. Plus, obviously the classic white 501 Levi jean shorts.
If you like any of the Nordstrom jean shorts and aren’t in a rush to buy, you can always bookmark those ones and check back when the Nordstrom anniversary sale’s on in case they go in their sale.

These super cute denim outfits make dressing easy. I’m loving Retrofete’s designs this year with their statement puff shoulder light acid blue jean jackets and matching shorts. As well as the slightly more affordable womens designer denim shorts on Revolve this Summer.
There’s a lot of colorful and structured outfits from other designers too that have so many cool details like raw edging on the shoulders of denim playsuits. They also have a denim romper that I have on my wishlist as it would be perfect for my Summer/Fall travel season.
How to style jean shorts in 2023
If you’re wondering how to style womens shorts, they’re more versatile than you might think. I really like the contrast of dressy with casual for 2023 jean shorts trends when it comes to denim for both jeans and jean shorts. Whether that’s denim cut off shorts and a blazer or tailored jean shorts with a white tee or bodysuit.
I think my love of denim and blazers comes from growing up in Europe where jeans, a blazer and heels are pretty much everyday uniform.
If it’s too hot for a blazer, take inspiration from Saint Laurent and Hermès and wear your shorts with a vest instead. Think tailored chic vest not Grandad vest for this look.
Heading into Fall, swap pumps and flats to trending cowboy boots or UGG’s which are also making a major comeback this season.
What top to wear with your denim jean shorts
