When quarantine started in March, the weather was still cold and rainy, but now just three months later, it’s much hotter outside and a sweatpants look just isn’t suitable for the temperatures. Sweatpants are the perfect wear-at-home look as they’re baggy and the elasticized waist gives us the comfort we need. The solution to still staying comfortable, but not burning up is to trade sweatpants for equally as comfortable sweatshorts.
The cotton cutoffs give you the same look, while letting your legs get some much-needed sunlight. They also look good with almost any look and you can opt for a pair of longer ones inspired by Billie Eilish or go for shorter ones like Dua Lipa. You can even wear them for your work Zoom calls by pairing them with an oversized blazer.
Sweatshorts happen to be much more relaxed and breathable than biker shorts. Some of our favorite ones are from the sweatpant brand Pangaia which emphasizes sustainability and donates one product to charity for each item purchased. You may have already seen some of their designs on your Instagram including their crewnecks with tiny text.
