Tried and Tested Denim Shorts Under $100

With the weather heating up, I’ve been on the hunt for some denim options to take me through the season.

I often get asked what the ‘age-appropriate’ length is for shorts and, to be honest, like all things fashion related, it comes down to personal preference. In saying that there are some longer options on the markets this season if that’s your jam!

Here are some tried and tested picks as submitted by YOU (click on each heading, or options in bold, for links).

1.[underline] DISSH  OLD SCHOOL BLUE[/underline]

These were hands down the most popular suggestion amongst the T2T fam so of course i bought some! #influenced :p

I went for my usual size 10. Bit snug pulling them up over the hips but comfortable once they’re on! They are 100% cotton so if you’re in between sizes go up as there is no stretch through the fabric.

Styled in the images with $9 Kmart blouse (size 10), Lacoste kicks and Adorne bag.


In at a close second place were these two Decjuba options:

Blair Button Up Paper Bag– Highwaisted option

D-Luxe Denim Jogger– Relaxed fit option


I live my Abrand mom jeans so would definitely like to try these at some point! I usually wear size 10 in Abrand.

4.[underline] COTTON ON HIGH MOM SHORTS[/underline]

These worked for so many of you but not for me! They were not as relaxed through the thighs as I would have liked but open to sizing up (I tried my usual 10).


Ahh it wouldn’t be a tried and rested list without a Kmart cameo! You guys are loving these two options:

Jogger Shorts – Longer through the leg, the fabric has some stretch

Distressed Denim Shorts– relaxed fit, no stretch.

Happy Hunting!
