If you saw my recent denim shorts post, you know I’m not exactly enamored with high-rise denim shorts. High-rise jeans, yes, but I had yet to find a pair of high-rise denim cut-offs that I actually liked. Until now. Leave it to one of my go-to brands for all things curvy—Good American—to come up with some seriously flattering shorts for curvy bodies. One reviewer said, “unless you have a nice round booty and thick thighs, these do nothing for you.” YES. They fit around your waist without squeezing your butt and thighs like so many other shorts. And one of my favorite things about this brand is their inclusivity in sizing. Not only do they carry sizes from 00-24, but they have models in all of those sizes to show what each size looks like (see pic below). SO good.
High-Rise Jean Shorts That Really Flatter Curvy Women
graphic tee: Guns ‘N Roses Shirt (available in a ton of colors and sizes)
shoes: Steve Madden Kimmie Snake Flatform Sandals – these come in a ton of colors and are super-comfortable. I love sandals that give me some extra height!
jacket: Water-Resistant Cropped Anorak – in regular and petite sizes, and also in white (it runs big – I’m wearing an xxs regular)
earrings: Nickel & Suede White Cork Gem Leather Earrings – lightweight, comfortable, and a perfect color for summer
