How Did We Choose The Best Women's Shorts Of The Year?

Picking out the best shorts for women seems easy, but it's not as straightforward as you might think. There are so many styles to choose from. And, there are different types of lengths, fabrics, and colors. Not to mention the varying levels of quality out there. So, before we dive into our list of the best summer shorts for women, here are the factors that we considered while creating our handpicked list.

Quality and Durability

Quality goes hand in hand with durability. Hence, you can't expect your high-waisted shorts to last long if you skimp on quality. And if you plan on being extra active this summer, you're going to want shorts that can stand up to a lot of wear and tear.

Luckily, you won't have to doubt the quality of the shorts in our 2022 collection. All of our pieces are carefully crafted from premium materials. They're made to withstand the test of time and last for years.


With so many styles of shorts to choose from, we've made it our goal to narrow down our list while including a bit of everything. Our collection boasts the best women's jean shorts, leather shorts, elastic shorts, and so much more. So, whether you're finding the perfect outfit for your Miami trip or just looking for a summer staple, you're sure to find just the right piece on our list.


If your shorts are uncomfortable, then you're not wearing the right shorts! Summer shorts should be comfy: not too restricting, itchy, heavy, or uncomfortable whatsoever. We've made sure that our top picks have a little bit of everything, including shorts with an elastic waistband, high-waisted shorts, bike shorts, and more.

Value for Money

Of course, we also took affordability and value into consideration while choosing our top picks. We believe that a great pair of shorts shouldn't be super expensive, but we also don't want to skimp on quality. That said, our list features a wide range of price points so you can find the right pair for your budget.
