Sweat shorts may have been the best thing to come out of 2020. The silhouette hails from the 90s, when basketball players regularly wore them on and off the court.
Sweat shorts have been making a recent resurgence since we have been all on the search for the perfect loungewear this year. It may be time to put our beloved sweatpants aside and make room for the newer trend of sweat shorts.
Sweat shorts combine the comfort level and coziness of sweatpants, with the sexiness of regular shorts. While winter is still in full swing, they allow you to crank up the heating or sit by the fire without overheating like you would in sweatpants. And when spring comes around, sweat shorts will still be a welcome addition to your wardrobe.
They are the ultimate comfortable choice to wear, but that doesn’t mean they can’t look hot. Sweat shorts can create a casual, low-key look that can look sexy when styled well. Read on for the best ways to style yours.
Go For the Sporty Look
Take inspiration from Emily Ratajowski in her own collection of sweat shorts by her brand Inamorata. Emily is the queen of dressing casually but remaining sexy always, so it only makes sense for her to capture the trend in her own brand.
These looser fitted, longer style shorts worn by Emily are reminiscent of basketball shorts and look great with a cropped tee or sports bra. Paired with sneakers and hair tied up and you have an effortlessly casual look.
Whether you plan to work out in them or just appreciate the elastic waistband for your ever-growing collection of loungewear, sweat shorts are a must buy. And who knows, a pair of sweat shorts may even motivate you to stick to your New Year’s resolution and actually workout.
A Matching Sweat Shorts Set
A two-piece, monochrome matching set is the perfect loungewear that leaves you feeling put together with minimal effort. Whether you opt for neutral tones in black or beige, or you add a pop of color, there are lots of options for styling.
Your matching set will be your outfit of choice for grocery runs, airport selfies, and casual shopping days, and the understated look will leave you feeling sexy and chic.
Wear Sweat Shorts with Accessories (And Attitude)
Undeniably, the best way to make sweat shorts look hot is by wearing them with confidence. Unfortunately, sweat shorts aren’t the easiest thing to pull off, and sometimes they can make you question if you are dressed effortlessly sexy, or just like a slob.
The best way to avoid this is to dress up your shorts with accessories. Jewelry, socks, and sunglasses are great additions to your outfit so that you avoid looking like you just rolled out of bed. And as Delaney Childs demonstrates, never underestimate the power of a perfect hair day to elevate your casual look.
