We're already officially one month into summer, and if you don't yet own a pair of high-waisted denim shorts, well, we commend you for being thus-far immune to the season's most ubiquitous trend. Or maybe you're looking for a new wash or style — something bermuda-length or vintage-inspired or without distressing, perhaps. Or, something that feels appropriate outside of the Coachella tents.
Regardless, now is still a great time to invest in a pair of high-rise jorts: The hottest days of summer are still ahead of us, and many of them are currently on sale. Plus, this being a classic summer staple, we guarantee you'll be pulling them out next year, too.
