    3. A pack of three that comes in tons of color varieties so you can quickly build up your biker shorts collection and finally say goodbye to your stifling leggings... well, at least until fall rolls around.

    4. A pair with mesh panels on the side for extra breathability on those scorching days when even shorts feel like too much fabric on your legs.

    5. An acid wash print — because you love the idea of tie-dye, but let's face it, everything else in your wardrobe is black. These will fit right in.

    6. A longer 12-inch design that's basically the leggings-shorts hybrid of your dreams. It lands right at the knee so you can keep your entire upper leg protected from any annoying chafing.

    7. A highly rated pair that not only comes in several vibrant colors, but also has a hidden pocket in the waistband so you'll have a handy place to stash your debit card or gym pass. The more pockets, the merrier!

    8. A super soft cotton-spandex design if you love the look of biker shorts but prefer the feeling of sweatpants. You deserve the best of both worlds.

    9. A pair with a slim-fit design that's meant to move with you all day and never lose its shape. Plus, the leopard print design is giving me Cheetah Girls vibes even though I'm aware that leopards are not at all cheetahs.

    10. A pair of denim bike shorts — because did you even know those were a thing?! It combines the classic wear-with-anything reliability of jeans with the breathability of biker shorts, so it might just become the only thing you wear for the rest of the summer.

    11. A pair of shorts that are thick enough to not be see-through, yet lightweight enough to keep you cool and comfy. They also come in three different lengths so you can stock up on the 2.5-inch for the hottest days of summer, or go for the 9-inch to help you transition into fall.

    12. Under Armour shorts with 🔥 HeatGear 🔥 fabric to quickly wick away excess sweat so you'll feel dry and cooled off throughout your entire workout.

    13. A cozy two-piece set featuring a pair of shorts with a super stretchy elasticized waistband and a matching T-shirt with an oversized silhouette that looks comfy enough to sleep in.

    14. A pair by Stretch Is Comfort that come in so many summer-friendly patterns so you can stand out among the sea of black and gray bike shorts. The brand was founded by a stay-at-home mom, so you can trust and believe these are designed with comfort and busy days in mind.

    15. A snakeskin design because it is comfortable enough to lounge around in, but you'll probably be inspired to slither outside and show them off.

    16. A knee-length pair that you'll definitely still be reaching for throughout the fall thanks to the extra bit of coverage.

    17. An environmentally-friendly pair made of 92% organic cotton and 8% spandex — but don't worry, it still has all the stretch and breathability you'd expect from a regular pair of biker shorts.

    18. A pair with super cushiony padding if you plan on using your bike shorts for, you know, actual biking. These will keep you more motivated during your spin class than Cody from Peloton.

    19. A bike skort — ya heard me right! — that combines the moisture-wicking comfort and spacious pockets of your favorite bike shorts with the Wimbledon-chic style of a tennis skirt.

    20. A Reebok design if you need your shorts to match your favorite running sneakers. They also have just the right amount of compression to feel secure, but not so tight you can barely breathe.

    21. A pair with a sleek mesh trim that not only adds some extra airflow, but also just looks super stylish. Prepare to tell everyone where you found these, because they'll definitely be asking.

    22. Or! This pair with a chic lace trim if regular biker shorts are just a little too casual for your personal style.

    23. An exercise-friendly pair with pockets so you can stash your phone, AirPods, hand sanitizer, and face mask — because you should never have to leave your essentials behind just to get a workout in.

    24. A pair of high-waisted bike shorts made of a super lightweight fabric that are stylish enough to wear around town yet comfortable enough for an actual bike ride. It also sits slightly above the knee for the perfect amount of extra coverage.

    25. And a pair of slightly longer knit bike shorts that are as perfect for intense workouts as they are for wearing underneath that new dress you just bought for your return to the office.

    Now go live in biker shorts for the rest of the summer!
