  • Old Navy Shorts Try On

    I popped into Old Navy to look around and check out new inventory. I took the opportunity to take stock of their shorts and tops, and do a quick try on. There are lots of deals at Old Navy right now.

    Denim shorts are a warm weather necessity so I will start with those…


    I tried on two lengths of the same fit. The first is a shorter, rolled denim short and the second a longer, frayed pair. I prefer a high waist fit to my denim shorts and both pairs offered that fit.


    TANK, sized Small | SHORTS – sized up to a 6, $30 | SHOES | EARRINGS | LIPSTICK

    FIT: I loved these shorts! The 90s fit. The button closure. Slight stretch to fabric for give, and smart pockets for smoothing effect at belly.

    SIZING: I would size up in these for sure. I chose a size 6 over my normal 4, and could of even gone with an 8 for an even more nostalgic oversized fit. Also, the inseam is 3″, which means these are short. If you prefer a longer fit, there is a 5″ version here, and 7″ version here.

    CARE: I would wash these babies inside out and hang dry or drape them over a chair. Dryers wreck havoc on natural fibers, and denim is cotton after all. Plus there is a little spandex int here, and dryers burn spandex fibers.

    COST: These were on flash sale for $16 at the entrance table. They are currently on sale for $30 (Originally $39.99) You can snatch them up here.


    SHORTS – TTS, $25

    These shorts are great if you prefer some length or versatility since you can roll them as you like.

    FIT: These are the same 90s fit as the pair above, only with a longer 5″ inseam. Button closure, and smart slimming pockets. Slight stretch for give.

    SIZING: I found these to be true to size.

    CARE: I would also wash these inside out in cold water, and hang or drape dry them. Keep the heat off that small stretchy fiber.

    COST: Currently on sale for $25.00 (originally $34.99), Get them here.


    The second type of shorts that I looked at are the linen pull-on shorts. I love the relaxed vibe a pair of linen shorts lends to a look. Kinda beach, kinda lake life, perfect for all things summer.

    These shorts are a steal at $14!!

    These brown colored shorts also come in olive, mustard, black, brown and clay red.

    FIT: These shorts are high waisted with an elastic waistband and drawstring. They have a 3.5″ inseam, and a faux fly. The striped shorts are a blend of cotton and linen and the brown colored shorts are a mix of cotton & rayon. I liked them both, but favor the striped ones simply for the fabric content. I stay away from rayon in the summer, it will make you sweat since it does not breathe.

    SIZE: I found these to run a little loose but true to size. You want them to be somewhat generous since they are meant to be more relaxed and pull on.

    CARE: The fabric content means that they should be washed in cold cycle, and dried on low or hung.

    COST: On sale for $14 (Originally $18) Brown colored here. Railroad stripe here.


    The third style that caught my eye were the high waisted, tie belt shorts. Old Navy calls these “Workwear Shorts.” They are a sturdier, thicker fabric than the shorts above. It might be a canvas fabric.

    Also available in mauve, black, gray, olive, lavender and the dark tan above.

    FIT: These shorts are a true to size fit. High waisted with a 4.5″ inseam. Tie belt and elasticized waist and zipper closure. The fabric is a cotton twill.

    SIZE: True to size, they are slightly over sized and are not meant to be snug.

    CARE: Cold wash, hang dry.

    COST: $35 (Originally $ 34.99) Get them in olive, black, mauve, lavender and olive here.


    Old Navy has such a great selection of shorts and some great deals. I always find tons of new things each season to update my wardrobe with. I always look for high quality fabrics like cotton and linen. The brand does these very well and so inexpensively.

    Of all the shorts I tried on, the only pair that made it home with me is the first pair of denim shorts, the rolled ones. I really liked the fit and thought they’d be a great short to share in daily outfits on Instagram.

    Stay tuned for the Tops that I tried on, in my next post…..
