A woman wearing jean shorts.
Jean shorts, occasionally called "jorts", are a garment worn by women or men that covers the pelvic area, the buttocks, and the legs. They are simply shorts made from denim.
Some restrict "jorts" in particular to self-cropped pants made from denim (cut-off jeans), while others broaden them to include denim shorts cropped, hemmed, and sometimes even pleated at the knee.
