15 Chic High-Waisted Shorts That Look Expensive (But Aren't!)

High-waisted shorts can trick the eye into seeing legs that go for days, topped off by a teeny waist. In other words, they’re 100 percent flattering, which is exactly why we love ’em. PHOTOS: Taylor Swift and Her Signature High-Waisted Shorts Paired with a bellybutton-skimming crop top, or with a sharp tucked-in blouse, high-waisted shorts are the easy-to-wear, leg-lengthening buy that will keep you company during the summer days ahead. Here, we shortlist 15 of our favorite (and cheap) high-waisted shorts that you can snag for under $100 — from chic, tailored pairs to slouchy denim cut-offs — and lots in between.
