This season everyone is falling back in love with high-waisted shorts. Since the 1960s, high-waisted shorts have been around… but only up until now have they been craze of almost every girl this summer. Although the classical high-waisted shorts are “in”, there seems to be a new trend within the style. These “new and improved” high-waisted shorts add an edgy style, whether they are bedazzled with spikes and studs, have an ombre color, or various prints.

With the high demand for high-waisted shorts, finding the right pair for your style can be a challenge. Try to skip the trip to the nearest mall and instead turn to your laptop. I’ve found that the best place to find a wide variety of styles and sizes for high-waisted shorts is through online shopping. Here are my favorite “go to” sites for high-waisted shorts. Enjoy!

Key hint: Since you won’t be able to try these shorts on before purchasing them, here are a few guidelines to help you to determine whether or not to purchase them. First, before falling in love with a pair of high-waisted shorts, make sure to look at the return policy and shipping rates. If the prices are too costly, refrain from looking further. You want to make sure you are okay with the terms of the return policy, so that if you need to return them you can do so. Second, read ALL the reviews. This is key because normally girls will include their weight and height in the review allowing you to gain some insight to how it will then fit your body. Also, some girls will tend to upload pictures of the item, giving you a more realistic picture of what the shorts will look like. Third, look at the sizing chart. This is normally placed underneath the size selection button. When looking at the chart, make sure to also measure your waist and hips to determine what size will fit you properly. If you find your measurements in between two different sizes, check to see what kind of material it is made of. If it is mostly 100% cotton, then buy the bigger size because the fabric will shrink in the wash. If the fabric is made with a material that is stretchy (such as spandex), buy the smaller size so the high-waisted shorts don’t stretch out.
