Comfortable enough to lounge in, but cute enough to wear out, or what I refer to as “The Dream.”

Unless otherwise specified, all sizes in this post are listed in women’s.
A pair of shorts made of a cotton and linen blend, which means they won’t be too stiff to sit in but will also let your legs breathe when you’re outside.
Seamless ribbed bike shorts you could wear for lounging around and finishing your book — or working out — whatever is more your summer speed.
A printed lace trim pair so you can ~squeeze~ the day when you wear them and accomplish whatever is (or is not) on your to-do list.
Button-front shorts for a professional look without a professional feel. Your team might not be able to see your bottom half in your video meeting, but at least you’ll feel like a boss while rocking these.
A fringe style super easy to pull on in the morning when you really can’t even think about pulling an outfit together. Throw these on with your favorite white T-shirt, and you’ll be G2G. (Even if that “go” is just to the couch.)*
Pull-on denim shorts great for anyone who really likes the look of denim but not always the constricting feeling. These have an elastic waistband and loose fit, so they’re great for working and then taking a mid-day walk break.
Athletic pocket shorts you’ll want to have on ~hand~ for any run to the grocery store so you can stash your phone and keys in your pocket and not worry about lugging your whole purse around.
Tie-waist shorts made with lightweight fabric so you won’t be ~tied~ down by heavy fabric when the temperature outside keeps rising and the fan in your apartment just isn’t cutting it.
Tencel trousers designed to look just as good paired with a cropped T-shirt as they do with a tank top.
A leopard print pair that are cute, comfortable, *and* at such a great price, you may go a little ~wild~ and add them to your cart immediately.
Button-down shorts to add a pop of color to your wardrobe for both you and (possibly) the outside world to see.
Drawstring shorts made with 5% spandex, so it won’t be a ~stretch~ to say these will quickly become a favorite of yours that you’ll grab at least once a week.
Linen shorts that’ll be a ~breeze~ to wear all the time, because they’re in a great neutral color that’ll match with so much in your wardrobe.
Shorts great for lounging around and watching Netflix, but that will still look nice if you happen to run into your favorite neighbor while on your daily trip to get the mail.
A white pair you’ll wear from now till wayyy after Labor Day, because rules like that are made to be broken by a fashionista like you.
A pair of bike shorts you may find yourself living in because they’re stretchy, supportive, *and* have pockets on the side big enough to fit your phone. Now that’s a win-win-win.
A knit style that’ll essentially make you feel like you’re wearing your pajamas all day long, without, you know, actually wearing your pajamas all day long.
An elastic waist pair that almost look like a skirt but with the added confidence that a gust of wind *won’t* surprise you and cause you to flash the world.
Tie-dye lounge shorts for a subtle twist on the tie-dye trend that doesn’t seem like it’s going anywhere any time soon.
Athletic shorts great for that indoor virtual workout class you signed up for or just a run. Whatever is more your ~speed~.
Twill shorts all your ~buds~ will be asking you where you got them from, because they’ll want to get their own pair.
A tropical style you’ll be in such ~disbe-leaf~ over, you may just pick up another pair in a different pattern.
Yoga lounge shorts that’ll be a ~mauve-lous~ addition to the clothes you wear all the time, no matter if you do yoga in them or not.
And a printed pair you’ll want to rock at least once a week because they’re just so cool and different than anything else you already own.
