Great summer shorts
Beautiful fabric, perfect for the office in the summer or dressed up for an evening out. The fit is perfect, not too short and not too long.

I love these but wise up
These fit like a dream, and the crepe fabric is beautiful and looks expensive. They are also the perfect length for the office. The only reason I am giving these a 4 out of 5 is the sizing. I am a true S/4 for all Aritzia bottoms (including the effortless pants, which I have 2 pairs of), and I had to size up for these shorts as others had suggested. I ordered a 6 in these and it fits like a 4. For reference: I’m 5’4” and athletic 123lbs (I have a butt & thicker thighs).

Versatile summer short
These shorts are very comfortable and fit true to size. You can dress up with a vest or camisole or dress down with a tee and sneakers.

Perfect Europe vacation shorts
I originally ordered a size 4 as the reviews said they fit true to size. However, had to return for a size 2 because they fit slightly larger. For reference I am typically a size 4. I have the effortless pants in size 0 but needed one size up in the shorts. These shorts are the perfect midi length and look great in the navy blue.

Nice flowy shorts
Love the fabric of the effortless pants and happy they made them in shorts. I sized up one size from my normal size since I wanted some room. The older versions use to have the inseam length but for some reason isn’t listed for this one. So just in case you’re wondering, these are the 5” inseam shorts. Perfectly flowy and hits above my knees. And if anyone is deciding between colors like I was, “dark knight navy” is a mix between “total eclipse” and black.
