Rank & Style Approved


Cato Plus Size Drawstring Linen Shorts

BEST FOR: If you're looking for a budget buy, you can't go wrong with these breezy linen shorts. With their functional pockets and ultra-comfortable stretch waist, they're worth way more than $17.99.

STYLE WITH: Pair these with a knotted-up t-shirt and flat sandals for an easy summer look.

Universal Standard Paloma Linen Shorts

WHERE TO WEAR: No need to dread dressing for the office this summer—these long and sophisticated linen shorts are about to make it a whole lot easier.

STYLE WITH: Yes, there's a matching blazer. And yes, it's just as gorgeous as the shorts.

Lands' End Plus Size High Rise Linen Shorts

LOVED FOR: Besides the super comfortable elastic waist, reviewers love these shorts for their serious pocket game. We're talking two top-stitched pockets in the front and two button-flap pockets in the back—all four of which are incredibly roomy and actually functional.

FUN FACT: These come in four stunning colors, including a eucalyptus green that's so on-trend for summer.

Torrid Self Tie Short Short In Linen Tan

WHY YOU NEED IT: With a waist-nipping rise and a loose fit in the thighs, these shorts nail the perfect combination of comfy and flattering. Summer shorts don't get much better than this.

STYLE WITH: We'd wear these with a denim shirt just like the model did. 

Eloquii Tie Waist Linen Shorts

LOVED FOR: Thanks to the elastic waist, these linen shorts are just as cozy as your favorite PJs but way more flattering.

HELPFUL TIP: Rejoice—these aren't the slightest bit see-through.

Ava & Viv Plus Size Striped Linen Shorts

USERS SAID: "I have wide hips and a butt that don't like to get along with most "regular" sized bottoms. A 1x fits comfortably and looks beautiful on me. It fully covers my bottom and looks cute any way I style it!"

HELPFUL TIP: These shorts run large, so we recommend sizing down for the best fit.

Moloke Plus Size Linen Stretch Shorts

WHY YOU NEED IT: At just $18.39 a pair, these shorts look like a high-end designer find. Way to go, Walmart.

STYLE WITH: These shorts are on the thinner side, so it's best to wear them with nude or no-show undies.

NYDJ Linen Bermuda Shorts

WHERE TO WEAR: A little more polished than the rest, these pretty linen shorts will be perfect for summer workdays. Just add a lightweight button-down or floral blouse, and you'll be set.

HELPFUL TIP: These will stretch a bit after the first wear, so it's best to order a size down.

Athleta Cabo Linen 4" Short

WHAT IT DOES: Get yourself a short that can do both. With stash pockets, an adjustable waistband, and subtly textured linen that feels light on the skin, these are perfect for outdoor adventures and outdoor dinners alike.

FUN FACT: Unlike most linen pieces, you can wash and dry these without worrying about ruining them. Score.

Sobrisah Casual Shorts With Pockets

WHY YOU NEED IT: For just $25.99 a pop, you'll get not one, but two pairs of linen shorts you'll want to live in all summer long. Run, don't walk.

USERS SAID: "These shorts are a must-have for your next cruise or picnic or trip to the beach. I ordered the two-pack with one pair of black shorts and one pair of white. They look and fit great, and when I had to spot clean the white ones, I just clipped them to the back of the beach chair, and they were dry in no time. They were cool and comfortable, and a perfect weight. I LOVE THEM!"
