22 New Pairs of Sweatshorts to Prepare You For Warmer Weather

Like everyone else, my sartorial love affair with sweatshorts began a little less than a year ago. The fabric known as denim was no longer in my vocabulary (temporarily, at least), and it would soon be too hot for sweatpants. Luckily, brands were right in step with that thinking, and in came the sweatshorts trend, but I’d argue that they’re no longer just a trend—they’ve become a warm-weather basic. Given that they’re wildly comfortable and you can easily dress them up or down, they’re pretty much the perfect article of clothing.

At the start of the sweatshorts trend, inventory was scarce and every new pair would fly out of stock. But now, there are tons of options on the market to choose from, and brands both high and low have fully embraced the trend. So in case you’re in need of a sweatshorts refresh and are seeking help navigating the offerings, keep scrolling to find your next pair, sourced by me.
