Put down the cut-offs.

How many — and be honest here — jean shorts do you own? Yes, they’re timeless and easy to style, but there are so many elevated, less expected alternatives out there. To start, TZR has curated an edit of nice shorts that aren’t denim, from linen bottoms to pleated Bermudas.

We at TZR only include products that have been independently selected by our editors. We may receive a portion of sales if you purchase a product through a link in this article.@greceghanem
Agua by Agua Bendita
Toronjil Pleated Floral Linen Shorts
Made of airy linen, these floral flared shorts by Agua by Agua Bendita could easily become the bottoms you reach for the most this summer. Consider styling the rest of your outfit with the print’s bright lilac hue in mind — a soft purple crop or pair of strappy sandals, for instance.
