Jumping Aboard the Jort Trend this Season!
Tackle the transitional weather with a transitional piece! Nestled somewhere between jeans and short, we have 'Jorts', the grungy staple many celebrities are siding with.
If you’ve been to or consumed any content from New York City in the last few months, you’ll have noticed that the fashionable city dwellers summer staple was the ‘Jort’. Born from a jean, evolved to a short, this denim phenomenon is the epitome of the go-to for the ‘cool girl’.
Adored and embraced by the ultimate cool-girl celebs like Bella Hadid, her sister Gigi Hadid and Hailey Bieber, the jort has well and truly earned it’s place in the top denim items for the remainder of 2023.
Characteristically, the jort is a loose and long denim short that looks as though you’ve taken a set of scissors to a vintage pair of Levi’s 501’s. Think of a boyfriend jean but cut into a short. Loose in silhouette, high-waisted and finished off with a sprinkling of attitude.
What they’re not? A jort is certainly NOT tight and certainly NOT super short. They couldnt be further from the ‘my boots are made from walking’ denim cut-offs.
The epitome of the jort is this example from Isabel Marant, courtesy of SSENSE. The Blue Balina Denim Short offer a balance of New York cool with the style sensibility of Parisian chic. This mid blue denim is the ideal trans-seasonal wash that could easily be worn in autumn with a knee-high boot.
For something a little on the more accessible side, these jorts from Cotton On are everything. The Super Baggy Carpenter Denim Jort offers the style sensibility of a designer denim short, at a fraction of the cost.
For a pair of jorts with a little bit of an eccentric spin, this iteration from DAZIE, the private label brand coming out of The Iconic, The Highway Dream Denim Cargo Jorts are certainly a bit of fun.
