Denim Shorts for Women

When it comes to timeless style, few pieces of clothing can rival the longevity and popularity of jean shorts. From DIY cut-offs to short shorts and acid wash detailing — denim has been a staple in women's fashion for generations. 

It could be because they pair flawlessly with just about anything else in your wardrobe. Or maybe it’s because they’re easy to customize and serve as a canvas for self-expression. Whatever the reason, there’s no denying denim shorts' cultural impact throughout history.  

Here at UNIONBAY, we’re betting on blue jean shorts being around for decades to come, so we’ve designed our own line of stylish options for you to choose from.

Types of Women’s Denim Shorts

Roll Hem Denim Short Shorts

From dancing at a beach party to enjoying a picnic in the park or exploring the city streets, these denim shorts will be your go-to choice. Our casual roll hem design offers flexibility in length, giving you the freedom to customize your look based on your style and mood. Roll them up for a flirty, fun-loving vibe, or roll them down for a more relaxed and laid-back feel. The choice is yours!

Denim Shorts With Multi-Stitch Detailing

Not one to shy away from making a fashion statement? Then you’re going to love these show-stopping short jeans! The intricate stitching creates a visually appealing pattern that’s sure to fetch you a few compliments. Plus, they’re chic enough to wear with a flowy, printed blouse and heeled sandals while still being comfortable enough for lounging by the pool. It’s a win-win! 

Paperbag Waist Jean Shorts

A paperbag waist is an ultra-flattering silhouette. It cinches around the smallest portion of your abdomen, creating that coveted hourglass figure while providing ample room around your legs for a complete range of motion. They’re a must-have if you like a looser fit around the hips or appreciate a fashion-forward aesthetic.

Faded Denim Bermuda Shorts

If you prefer to side-step the latest fashion trends for timeless, tried-and-true designs, you’ll want to try these bermuda jean shorts for women. With a cut that falls just above the knee, bermuda shorts are an excellent choice for those looking to maintain a sense of refinement or formality. They also complement a wide range of body types!

Deconstructed Boy Fit Denim Shorts

Do others describe your fashion sense as edgy? Are you a fan of distressed patches and frayed hemlines? If so, these are the shorts for you. They instantly add a relaxed vibe to any outfit without being over the top. Wear them with a leather jacket or a band t-shirt for a carefree, intentionally disheveled look.

Denim Shorts for Women: Shopping Considerations

When buying denim shorts, women can keep the following criteria in mind to improve their shopping experience:

Fabric Quality

Always assess the density and weight of denim before buying a product. You want your jean shorts to have a tight and even weave that’s soft to the touch yet durable enough to withstand typical levels of wear and tear.


While shopping for jean shorts, women can benefit from having a shape or style in mind that flatters their unique body shape. This dramatically reduces the likelihood of receiving a product that doesn’t fit properly. Shorter, curvier women benefit from the elongating effect of high-waisted shorts, while Bermuda shorts flatter taller, more slender body types (while providing sufficient coverage).  


Consider how you typically wear denim shorts. For instance, if you’re a woman who doesn’t like carrying a purse, buying shorts with large, well-placed pockets would be wise. If you plan to wear them while painting or doing other potentially-messy projects, it might be best to go with a dark wash to combat staining. It’s all about choosing a pair of denim shorts for women that’ll look great on you and work well with your lifestyle.
