Trending Paper-Bag Shorts | Shop or Flop?

Hey, girl! Have you seen these shorts all over lately? They have been trending for a while, and I was really on the fence whether I loved or hated them… so I decided to try them out and give you my thoughts! I’m here to help you out and let you know if paper-bag shorts are a flop or if you should shop!


Not going to lie, but I definitely didn’t care for these shorts at first, but they grew on my fast and now I love them! Are you a fan of paper-bag shorts? Make sure to let me know in the comments!


  • They are a little restricting as you have to be careful how you sit with them on.
  • Depending on the pair of shorts you have, they can be unflattering.


  • Can be worn casually or dressed up.
  • The shorts look clean and professional.
  • Depending on the specific style, they can be flattering on all body types.
  • There are affordable options for paper-bag shorts.
  • They are super cute!


The shorts I bought are from Ardene’s and they were only $30! I have seen tons of other cute ones from stores such as Forever 21 too! I’ve linked some paper-bag shorts below for you to shop!

Overall, I really love the shorts that I bought. I prefer the shorts I got over some of the other styles because they cinch at the bottom. However, some people prefer the wider pant which is really cool too! It all depends on what you prefer!

What do you think of paper-bag shorts? Are they a fashion SHOP or FLOP? Let me know your thoughts in the comments and vote in the poll below!
