The Perfect Jean Short: Daisy Embroidered Edition

The Perfect Jean Short: Daisy Embroidered Edition is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Style! Bought these a few weeks and cannot wait to wear them this Summer (all Summer!). Shorts fit well, I went a size up, so they would feel more like a boyfriend jean shorts and they fit me perfect! They sit high in the waist, not tight at all, a little forgiving on the legs and they pair perfectly with mules, Birkenstocks (my fav!) and slip on’s. Bonus stars for the cute daisy print! Love these:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE I love these shorts so much, and I have never loved a pair of jean shorts before. The daisies are so sweet and make these shorts stand out. I sized up and they fit great. Aren't tight on my thighs but still hug my butt. 100% recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Favorite Shorts! For reference, I am 5' 9" with very muscular curves. I absolutely love these shorts!! I went with my normal Madewell jeans size, and they fit wonderfully. They are a little bit tight on my butt, (which isn't unusual for me- I have one heck of a booty) but cover it completely and the leg openings have enough room to be comfortable without being baggy. They are definitely high rise- they go above my belly button. However, that is something I like. I look fantastic in these shorts- they are so flattering! I look forward to pairing these shorts with everything this summer- from cute blouses to my rugged Johnny Cash tshirts. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great high-waisted shorts These shorts are adorable, which is why I've gone through a lot of trouble exchanging them for the right size! Many of the reviews here said the shorts were cute but snug and to make sure to size up, so I did. I am 5'2 & 120lbs and normally take a 25-26. I ordered a 27 to size up and they were way too loose, considering how loose they were I decided to now order a 25. Which did fit and I could've worn but definitely a little snugger than I would prefer especially when sitting down. I am now waiting for my exchange to go through for the 26! Hoping they will be just right as these are the perfect length while also being the perfect high rise. I agree with the other reviewer that that daisies would be cuter in all white, but still cute none the less and seem like great quality!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great length I've been looking for a pair of cut-off shorts that are not too short but also not too boyfriend-y. These are the perfect length and just look/feel like good quality. I ordered my usual size and they are definitely stiff (no stretch). On first wear, I found them to be almost too tight in the waist, even though the legs are nice and roomy. I decided to stick with this size because I don't think they'd fit correctly (they are high-waisted) if the waist was bigger. I'm hoping the waist loosens up as I wear them more, but regardless they are a really cute style and I know I'll wear them a lot! Also, the embroidery looked all white to me in the photo, but the flowers are white AND yellow (not quite as subtle). Not a big deal, but worth noting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun spring/summer print! Very cute high waist shorts with a fun embroidered daisy print to add to my summer collection. They are not stretchy AT All, however, so relative to your usual stretchy jean size, be sure to go up a size!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wanted to love them I tried these in different sizes, but they just didn't fit. The wash is excellent and the daisies are great. I have them in the denim version and I love them. These shorts fit me very high waisted, which is okay, but then the legs balloon out on me. On the model, they look fitted. My thighs are average, so maybe if you have bigger thighs, the proportions would work better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute but didn't work for me Really cute shorts, nice denim. I just felt like they were tight in the wrong places, so I'll be returning them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute But Fitted I sized up based on the recommendation of previous reviews. They are more fitted around the butt and thigh area, so if you're curvy like me sizing up is definitely a good idea. I have a narrow waist so they're loose around there, but I find this a good thing since I can comfortably sit without the waistband digging into my skin. The daisies are very cute but could have been cuter if they did simple white outlines (personal thing), but I couldn't be happier with this purchase! I can't wait for the weather to warm up so I can wear these cute things!
