Summer-Ready Shorts and Pants That Will Keep You Cool All Season Long

If you’re like us, you view summer as both a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, the warm weather means outdoor adventuring and longer days to explore. On the other hand, stifling temps and humidity can make for sweaty activities and that dreaded panic moment while getting ready: What do I wear in this heat?

But ultimately, dressing for summer doesn’t have to cause outfit anxiety. You can stay cool and keep moving with the right wardrobe on hand. We’ve curated a list of our favorite shorts and pants from Athleta that are built to keep you active and on the go while maintaining a high level of comfort and breathability.

While we can’t help you plan your ideal summer day, we can at least help make this part of the day a piece of cake.
