It's Starting to Get Too Hot for Sweatpants—Here's What I'm Buying Instead

One 85-degree day last week, I looked down and realized I was wearing heavyweight sweatpants. Sure, I was staying indoors working all day, but the sun was beating in through the windows, and it was hot. This was not helped by the fact that I was wearing the aforementioned sweatpants. At the same time, sweatpants are the most comfortable thing on the planet, so what to possibly replace them with? 

This is far from rocket science, but sweatshorts and bike shorts, with their comfy material and wonderful elastic waistbands, are the obvious replacement. And brands such as Nike, Reformation, and Lou & Grey are fully stocked with them. Hello, cute stretchy shorts. Goodbye, sweaty sweatpants predicament. Keep scrolling to shop my favorite pairs before they sell out (just like all the sweatpants that came before did).


Nothing is softer than Lou & Grey's Signaturesoft fabric.

These are made of cotton and cashmere, so you can only imagine how good they feel on.

This pair is selling out left and right.

I can't get enough of Donni's elevated loungewear.

Bike Shorts

I've put these in more stories than I can count lately.

Just wait until you feel how soft these are.

I imagine many stylish influencers are wearing these at home.

You can never go wrong with Outdoor Voices.

These might even motivate me to do some more at-home workouts.

I'm 5'4" and think these would be the perfect length.

Cute with all those white ribbed tank tops you've acquired.
