After months spent indoors, there’s no doubt that many of us have chosen comfort as the number one priority when getting dressed. Loungewear sales have been soaring, even as many retailers have had to shutter their doors due to poor performance.
Sweatpants have become a wardrobe staple, no longer hidden away from public view as celebrities and influencers have been sharing their quarantine looks over the past couple of months. Now that the temperatures are starting to rise though, sweat shorts have replaced their bulkier counterparts as the go-to loungewear pick of the season.
No longer just the required uniform of gym class, sweat shorts are taking over from last year’s bike short as spring’s hottest style. Paired with a varsity sweatshirt they lend a collegiate feel to any casual look, but they can also be glammed up with the addition of a fitted tank and a sprinkling of gold jewelry.
They’re comfortable, affordable and versatile, and perfect for lounging the day away at home. If you’re not already on board with sweat shorts, shop some of our favourite styles below for a taste of this ultra-comfortable trend.
