Ultimate Guide to Pistola Shorts

I know I am part of the majority. The majority that felt finding the perfect pair of denim shorts is nearly impossible. While it seemed so many of us felt this way it was also apparent that everyone still wanted to find that perfect pair! So I decided to go all in – ordering three styles in multiple sizes from Pistola. There are a many reasons I selected Pistola denim shorts but it all boils down to the quality of the denim and how they well they fit.

I felt confident that if I ordered several styles in several sizes and tried them on in the comfort of my own home I would find the perfect pair. While also being able to provide feedback to y’all on the fit of each style – so you could hopefully find your perfect pair as well!

So let’s dive in and find you a pair of denim shorts you’ll be excited to wear…


Kylee Relaxed High Rise Cuffed – St. Tropez

The Kylee is their classic high-rise loose short. These don’t feel as distressed to me in terms of rips and tears but I love the texture to them and how beat up they look with the folds and the strings hanging down. This warm-weather staple comes cuffed and features light distressing throughout and comes in a crisp light wash with vintage marbling.

Fit: fits true to size

Washes: light wash, dark wash, black

Nova Relaxed High Rise Cut Off – Bowery

I have to say these are my go-to and quite frankly what I feel like we see a lot of out there. I sized up for more of a relaxed fit and I’m so glad that I did. These are my comfortable shorts that I get a lot of movement in but these also look great on my butt and still feel like they are a high waisted denim short. This quintessential short features classic distressing at the thighs and they don’t ride up in the thigh area like other denim shorts I have ever bought.

Fit: fits true to size. Size up for a more relaxed look.

Washes: light wash, medium wash, white, dark wash

Nova High Rise Relaxed Cut Off – Soulmate

This is the same style as above but different fit, wash, and tears. These are a little tighter in the thigh area but I love the rips and tears of these and how they hug around my butt. What drew me to these is the texture at the end because I am the biggest fan of the strings hanging down and feeling like things have been worn a lot.

Fit: fits true to size for a close fit, if you want a more oversized/comfortable fit I would size up one size.

Washes: light wash, medium wash, white, dark wash


Nova Relaxed High Rise Cut Off – Bowery

I LOVE this pair so much! I wear them several days a week, at the beach, run errands, out to dinner or brunch, and more.They’re flattering and oh so comfortable! They’re truly the first pair of denim shorts I feel GOOD in! For me, these are more flattering, comfortable and overall had a better fit for my body. I am so thankful I ordered all of these styles as it really allowed me to figure out what works best for my body and find my comfort level when it comes to denim cut off shorts.

Bottom line and lesson learned: order several styles in several sizes and spend some time in each one – sitting, walking, standing, and moving. This will really help you find your perfect pair of denim shorts!
