The Perfect-Fitting Shorts for Summer

Gap sunkissed printed shorts

Anyone else out there have issues finding shorts that fit for summer?
I always do. I can't stand it when shorts are too tight or too short, which is why I typically wear maxi dresses or skirts all summer. I have one pair of denim shorts that I love, but they are starting to fall apart and I'm getting scared that I may never wear shorts again if they die.

Last week, I received an email alerting me that the Gap was having a 20% off sale on summer shorts. Well, don't ya know I ran right in there and figured that I might as well try them all on. Every single pair. 

These shorts fit perfectly. 
Not too short or too tight. The Sunkissed printed shorts sit low on the waist and hit right at the upper thigh. My favorite are the palm leaf printed pair, which I now own. The denim shorts might be the best thing since brownies. That's how much I love them. I bought the destructed denim boyfriend shorts in the light wash + dark wash. I went down a size in these only because I didn't want them to be too baggy. They are super comfortable and there is no constant pulling in weird places because of improper fit. If you want a super slouchy short, go with the boyfriend roll-up short. You know I bought these in the mint color too, I can't even lie.

If you're like me and have trouble finding shorts for summer that actually fit, do yourself a favor and try these on. They are guaranteed to challenge your favorite maxi dress for a key spot in your summer rotation.

I am the exact same way with shorts! It's so difficult to hunt down the good ones but I must agree Gap is nailing it this year :)!

This is great to know! I also have a total dread come over me when it comes to short shopping. I love the look but I struggle... I'll have to get over to the mall to check these out!
