Who wears short shorts? We all do! That’s why we’re bringing you the best of the best with our new collection of American Eagle women’s short shorts. Designed for the ultimate leg-lengthening fit, our shortest shorts come in a 2.25” inseam that truly lets your legs be great. Choose from our highest quality denim shorts with a finished hem, raw hem, or rolled inseam that lets you choose just how short to wear them. Whatever your preference and style, we have the shorts you’re looking for!
We believe in bringing you jeans and shorts that feel as good as they look, which is why we use the highest quality denim in every pair of shorts we make. New Ne(x)t Level stretch utilizes the most advanced technology to look like vintage, 100% cotton denim, while still giving you an ultra-comfortable fit that feels like a hug in all the right places and never bags out. For a more classic look and feel, find your favorite AE short shorts in 100% cotton denim. The Tomgirl short comes in three inseams for every style, but with the 2.25” length, you’ll get the laid-back, slouchy fit you want to live in, and the long-legged look you love.
Whether you love the look of destroyed denim or clean blue washes, we’ve got you covered. Play up distressed details with hand-finished rip and repair elements and authentic whiskering, and fading, or go for classic black denim, white denim or deep indigo blue. The more you wear your AE short shorts, the more uniquely yours they’ll be, breaking in and taking on a look and feel that is truly your own.
Mix up your everyday denim shorts look with comfortable khaki shorts, stretch twill, and on-trend soft shorts in lightweight, printed fabrics for a summery, feminine look. These pull-on styles make dressing a breeze and redefine comfort for every season. Pair them with your favorite AE t-shirts and hoodies for laid-back vibes or dress them up with a Soft & Sexy bodysuit or textured sweater.
Find the looks you love & we'll hold them for you at your favorite AEO or Aerie Store, no payment needed. Here's how it works:
Find an item and Reserve In Store to get started. Reserve up to 5 items per day then look for an email or text confirmation. As long as the store is open, we'll get back to you within an hour.
Stop in and try on your reserved items. We'll hold them until the store closes the next day.
Simple as that.
