Shorts for Women: High-Waisted, Mom Shorts & More

At American Eagle, we've spent the past 40 years developing our craft to become America's favorite jeans brand, and our women’s shorts live up to the same standard. We make the tried and true fits you love, the latest trends, and all of the washes and details you're looking for. We have a pair of women’s shorts for every girl, every event and every spring and summer day. We use high-quality denim in every pair of denim shorts, soft, lightweight twill in our khaki shorts, and we make on-trend soft shorts to keep your style levels sky high. AE women's shorts come in all kinds of fits, fabrics and details so you can find the right pair every time. Upgrade your going out look, date night style, or concert vibes with AE women’s shorts.

No matter what style you prefer, American Eagle has the best women's short fits. Ranging from high-waisted shorts to low-rise regular ones, we’ve got plenty of options when it comes to how your shorts fit and feel. And in lengths ranging from our shortest inseam short shorts to the biker short and Bermuda short, you’ll always have a length you love and feel good about. Midi shorts offer an in-between length, and other fits like Mom shorts and Tomgirl shorts keep things relaxed and laid back. Soft shorts use lightweight fabrics and on-trend prints to keep you happy all year-round, and overall shorts diversify your shorts game with a one-piece showstopper you’ll love.

When it comes to fabric, choose from all kinds of denim and khaki options. Our women’s shorts are available in ultra-comfortable Ne(X)t Level stretch to give you a fit that holds its shape and moves with you for the most comfortable shorts you've ever had, and Super Stretch gives the right amount of stretch + structure. Rigid cotton jean shorts are soft and offer a throwback vibe with lighter washes and mid-weight fabrication. Denim shorts come with all the best details, too. Frayed hems, tears, rips, mending, patches and more create a look that’s all you. And with all the washes you can think of ranging from bright white to dark black and with all the blues in between, you’ll always have the right color shorts for your next outfit.

If you prefer classic khaki shorts, we have options for every girl. Go for our shortest short shorts, medium length midi shorts, or classic Bermuda shorts in soft khaki materials. Just like we have all the denim washes you want (seriously – from black denim to white, from rich indigo to faded vintage-inspired shades), our women’s khaki shorts come in a huge assortment of colors, too. Whether you go for neutrals like classic khaki, olive green, and navy blue, or prefer bold hues like pink, baby blue or camo prints, our women’s shorts collection has you covered with everything you need for shorts season. Every pair of women’s shorts is designed to feel as good as they look, so pick your favorites and make your best outfits by pairing them with our women’s tops today.
