Denim shorts are an important summer wardrobe staple. The problem is that most of the ones for sale these days are quite short — sometimes uncomfortably so. While there is definitely (and somewhat unfortunately) a market for shorts that bare the majority of one's ass cheeks, I've been in search of a pair with a little more coverage that still feels cool and summer-y, and I imagine I'm not alone.
Thankfully, Rachel Antonoff solved this problem with her & Other Stories collaboration. The shorts have a subtly vintage aesthetic with their high waist and dark, sturdy denim. Best of all, they're long enough to conceivably wear to work (if you work in a pretty casual environment), but short enough to make sense in a beach scenario. And they're only $60! So many wins.
