I just recently order some Urban Renewal Tie Dye Jean Shorts from Urban Outfitters. The shorts were on sale when I bought them for $29 and are originally $49. Since they are Urban Renewal it means each pair is slightly different and for the most part I am pleased with mine. They were Levi's high waisted shorts, that had been frayed and destroyed (in the good way we all love) and were tie dyed with cotton candy colored yellows, pinks, and blues. They look great and I knew I got a good deal. However they were a little small for me. I'm usually a 3 or 5 (a 26 or 27) so I got a size Small, like the size chart suggested. The shorts were a little tight around my hips so I sent them back with the prepaid exchange form they included and got a Medium. I am just as pleased the second time around.
You can combine them with nearly every style. Casual or chic or sexy. That´s a must-have fpr summer and besides it can make great legs.
On UO's website, I saw their Urban Renewal high-waisted shorts, but wasn't willing to pay forty dollars for some shorts you couldn't choose the color for. I saw their reviews and many were disappointed with the fact that they had received pairs that were completely different than the picture and weren't even the right size. So I decided not to buy them online.
But when I went to the actual store around new year's, I saw a couple pairs, and they all looked different. One was light colored and distressed with buttons as closures and patches and the back, one was extremely dark blue colored and very dark, but they both were called the same thing, which is why buying them online is very risky. And there are no sizes on the tag, so definitely try them on. But besides that, the quality is nice; they are reused Levi jeans, and I really like the style that I picked out, which was the light colored ones. I didn't like patches, which were meant to cover some distressed areas, so I took them off and added by own white patches on the inside, so they weren't visible.
I absolutely love them, and with the 50 percent off sale, I got them for only ten dollars. It's definitely worth the price and a must to buy them in stores.
The ones that I have are so completely versatile and super comfy. You can create a large variety of outfits and can combine a lot of different styles with them. A simple staple for a potentially wow-worthy look.
While browsing the uo website i noted that the shorts looked spectacular on the model, and so, without analyzing further, I ordered them.... But when mine arrived in the mail, I was extremely disappointed. I like the slightly slouchy look like on the model, so I ordered a 29 (I usually get a 27 or 28, am 5'2", 120 lbs., usually a size four). The front of the shorts bunched unattractively and the leg openings were really tight. The waist was too big in a size up and didn't settle over my hips right, either. From what I gathered, reading other reviews, other people had similar issues with the cut of the shorts being too big up top and too small on the bottom.
I'm 5'2", 120 lbs., and I ordered these in the size I usually wear- a size four. I have them in the dark denim wash and in black and am very happy with the quality of the shorts. They fit fine, except when I wore them all the way up on my waist- as they appear on the model- and the shorts were too short for my build. It's not a problem- on a thinner girl they would be gorgeous, but I am self conscious about my thighs and they seemed a little too short for me to wear them high up on my waist- instead I slouch them down over my hips a little to give the inseam that extra length.
