Now that we are in the beginning stages of summer and the temperatures are slowly rising it’s time to shift our daily wardrobe. Most of us are still in quarantine, which means most of us are still working from home. So, it seems like an appropriate time to transition from winter sweats to the summer lightweight versions of them. I know we still want to be comfortable, so here are some breathable, WFH approved shorts to help you stay cool.
Move over sweatsuits and meet the summer approved version. Tier NYC makes an incredibly soft short and hoodie set. Each item is dyed by hand, making the item super special and unique. They are used with terry cotton so the materials are lightweight for those warm days ahead. There are also several fun, vibrant colors to pick from.
For this next suggestion you might be confused and/or have middle school flashbacks, but Abercrombie & Fitch actually makes really good shorts. These paper bag linen-blend shorts are super flattering on everyone and the looseness of them isn’t constricting at all.
These shorts by Daily Paper are described as “sporty yet tailored,” which seems like the perfect combo for a WFH summer situation. They're made with a soft jersey fabric so you’ll just want to live in them. They come in three colors, but I am loving this blue!
These next shorts from Aritzia are another paperbag waist suggestion, but they have an elastic waistband. There’s also stitched fly so they give off the vibe of being elevated and put together, but they’re really just drapey and stretchy. Perfection.
This skort from Outdoor Voices looks like the perfect thing to throw on for Zoom meetings or running errands. It has built in shorts and the fabric is very breathable. Plus, you can even workout it in, so it’s a win-win.
For those who want a little structure, you can’t go wrong with Levi’s 501 Original Women’s Shorts. They don’t hug your thighs too tightly, but I do like to go up in size so they’re even looser and more relaxed fitting. They’re also nice and high-rise which is usually my go-to for shorts.
