The thought of giving up comfy joggers is enough to make some people shudder. Who wants to wear tight, constricting denim when stretchy, forgiving sweats are an option?

Of course, wearing sweatpants in hot, humid 90-degree weather poses a bit of a challenge. But fear not, that’s where sweatshorts come in. They’re just as soft and comfy as the full-length version and more seasonally appropriate.

With warm temps here to stay for the next few months, now is the perfect time to add sweatshorts to your wardrobe. Whether you pair them with your favorite cropped tee or get a matching hoodie to wear with them, the five sweatshorts below will quickly become staples in your summer outfit rotation.
