I always love clothes that pull double (or triple) duty: Leggings for yoga or working from home, pajamas for sleeping or brunching, and sneakers for workouts or errands. Running shorts, in my opinion, are similarly versatile. Aside from just running, they're also ideal for cardio exercises like hiking, dancing, cycling, and aerobics. And you know what else they're good for? Doing absolutely nothing at home. 

During the sweltering summer months, I always wear shorts all day long. If you've ever been without an air conditioner at home, you know how easy it is to start sweating without ever lifting a finger—and that's exactly where the moisture-wicking fabric of running shorts comes in handy. Below, I've rounded up my favorite shorts from tried-and-true brands like Nike and Adidas, as well as other options.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 13 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
