If you need new workout shorts, this is your post! I’ve rounded up the very best workout shorts for every budget. I also shared why I like each of these items, so there’s more info below on each of these pieces. I LOVE leggings but once the heat of the summer rolls in, I opt for shorts and these ones are just too cute.
HIGHER RISE WORKOUT SHORTS | here
For $9.96 it’s hard not to order 1 in every color. They nailed the fit on these- higher rise, roomy in the butt and thighs yet super flattering.
DRAWSTRING, LOOSE RUNNING SHORTS | here
These are a similar look to the Lululemon Hotty Hot shorts. The color options are so on trend and I love the tie drawstring to give the shorts a little cute twist.
STREAMLINED ATHLETIC SHORTS | here
Speaking of Lululemon, these are a very similar look to the Lululemon speed shorts. I like how these are streamlined and have a closer to the body fit.
DRAWSTRING WORKOUT SHORTS | here
Old Navy is one of the best, budget-friends brands for athletic wear and these shorts do not disappoint. TONS of other cute colors and patterns as well!
HIGH WAIST YOGA SHORTS WITH POCKETS | here
LIGHTWEIGHT WORKOUT SHORTS WITH POCKETS | here
Women RAVE about these in the reviews. Personally, I really like the lines and cuts on these. The reviews note to order one size up if you have curvier legs and butt.
ASYMMETRICAL WORKOUT SHORTS | here
I have to tell you the 1 thing I love most about shorts: an asymmetrical cut in the front… it makes your legs look longer and leaner. These nail it!
STRETCHY LOUNGE + WORKOUT SHORTS | here
These come in 13 amazing colors, have stellar reviews and would look so cute for workouts as well as a daytime outfit.
SEAMLESS COMPRESSION SHORTS | here
I’ve purchased these multiple times! I wore these all the time right after I had my babies because I love that they keep you feeling sucked in. I love the seamless fit… they feel amazing to wear. Now, I wear these as a liner under looser fitting workout shorts.
HIGHER END WORKOUT SHORTS
These are one of my recent favorites. In fact, I recently discovered this brand and LOVE all the shorts and leggings I’ve purchased so far. The fit is beyond flattering and they’re well worth the price in my opinion.
NIKE TEMPO 2 IN 1 RUNNING SHORTS | here
Higher end without a ridiculously high price point. I love these for a built in liner!
LULULEMON TRACKER SHORT | here
These are an amazing option that I would recommend to just about every women. They’re equally flattering and functional and I really like the 4 inch inseam.
LULULEMON SPEED-UP SHORT | here
I recommend these to women who like a closer to the body fit for shorts. These are amazing at completely staying put while you workout… when you squat, they don’t sag down. I also love that they updated these to a longer, 4 inch inseam.
LULULEMON HOTTY HOT SHORT II | here
A great option for those who like quality shorts with a more relaxed, looser fit. Lululemon always has amazing colors and patterns, and update them often!
LULULEMON ALIGN SHORT 6” | here
These are it if you’re looking for a biker short. I have several lengths of these but always find the 6 inch to be a really good balance between functional for workouts and long enough to get good coverage.
FREE PEOPLE PRETTY LIL RUNNING SHORTS | here
I had to order these because of the scalloped detail and adorable color!
FREE PEOPLE THE WAY HOME SHORTS | here
I thought these were a great, quality option for a good price!

I LOVE these shorts. You’ve probably seen me wear the hot pink ones (which unfortunately sold out). It’s a super popular look to wear these with a yoga/spandex short underneath as pictured. I wear mine with the black seamless shorts I shared above.
