For a breezy workout staple that won’t go out of style, turn to these biker shorts. By SAMANTHA FRANCIS.

The past two years have seen a massive shift in our fashion choices, from occasion dressing to a comfort-first philosophy marked by loungewear, sandals, and athleisure pieces like biker shorts. After all, we’re staying in and working from home more often than before.

Once a staple for seasoned cyclists, biker shorts are the cropped counterparts of leggings and offer comfort without unnecessary heat. Their resurgence comes at a time where we’re all about making fuss-free wardrobe choices—biker shorts not only look good on the treadmill but also on the streets when paired with an oversized blazer and sneakers.

Here are some biker shorts we love:
