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.
