The Skinny on Summer Shorts

June 21st, 2013

Who wears short shorts? Well, frankly, we do. Many of the ladies at the ‘House bust them out when the mercury crawls above about 80. But if you’re not a short short kind of girl, don’t fret – we have plenty of shorts with longer inseams for those who want to be a bit more modest. We’ve rounded up a few of our fave shorts to keep your gams happy all summer long.

Ideal for Sprints: Nike Women’s 2” Rival Short

Slip into your Nike Women’s 2” Rival Shorts when you’re heading to the track for your sprint workout. The incredibly soft and stretchy shell fabric moves with you, and a minimal inseam and side scallop make this short move with you as you find your stride. Slip your key or a credit card into the secure back zip pocket while you workout.

Ideal for Long Runs: Pearl Izumi Women’s Ultra Split Short

When it’s time for your long run, reach for your Pearl Izumi Ultra Split Shorts. Two anatomically placed hip pockets give you room to stash gels or bars for hours of fuel, and a secure back zip pocket provides additional storage room. A generous half split allows you to find your stride with ease, and a flat waistband sits smoothly against your hips without chafing.

Ideal for Tempo Runs: adidas Women’s Supernova Short Tight

The adidas Supernova Short Tight is short and sweet for your tempo runs. The bun-hugging fit moves with you seamlessly, and lower back mélange mesh enhances ventilation in a high sweat area. An internal envelope pocket provides a great place to stash your key when you head out the door. Reflective branding increases visibility in low-light settings to up your safety factor.

Ideal for Everyday Training: Saucony Women’s P.E. Shorts

Sometimes simple is just right, and Saucony made simple right with the Women’s P.E. Short. Lightweight fabric wicks moisture to keep you dry and comfortable as you crank up the intensity on your run, and a scalloped hem lets you move freely. Contrast color side stripes offer a pop of energy to help get you out the door for your daily workout.

We’re talking get-in-my-closet-now run apparel.

Take a look at a few of our faves below.

Go Long Tank

The Oiselle Go Long Tank takes you playfully from your workout to the rest of your life. A soft poly/cotton blend fabric gives you plenty of moisture-wicking power on the run, and feels great against the skin. This tank has a racerback design and a longer, streamlined close-to-body fit which makes it great for layering. The contrast color Oiselle bird graphic on the back and the front left hip add a little extra springtime to this piece.

The Go Long Tank is my favorite by far. It’s cute, it’s functional, and the fit is so nice!” – Allie

Stellar Stripe Tank

Meet us at the intersection of fashion and function in the Oiselle Stellar Stripe Tank. Racerback design gives you full freedom of movement, and a small envelope pocket on the front left hip lets you stash your key or other small essentials. Polyester/cotton blend fabric is smooth and soft, and wicks moisture to keep you dry and chafe-free. Contrast color stripes and an asymmetrical design make this piece cute enough to pair with your favorite jeans for a jaunt to the farmers’ market.

“Amazingly soft fabric with fun and feminine styling. This tank feels so good on a run.” - Tami Read more…

Bring The Heat: Great Shorts for Warmer Weather

April 12th, 2012

Women's Running Shorts

Hey shortie! Temps are rising as we move into spring and summer, so we’ve picked a few of our favorite shorts for spring and summer running. These beautiful bottoms will give you the technical performance you’re looking for without forsaking style, so you can train hard and look good all summer long.

The North Face Better Than Naked Cool Split (Top Left)
Better than naked? You decide. But either way, public nudity is frowned upon, so The North Face Better Than Naked Cool Split is a great option for everyday use. The fabric is featherweight, and a half split offers excellent range of motion. Two back envelope pockets and a secure back zip pocket give you enough stow space to pack nutrition and essentials for an epic adventure. This short is fierce enough to tackle the trails or the road.

Moving Comfort Momentum Short (Top Middle)
A wide stretch waistband that lays comfortably on the waist…a secure back pocket to stash essentials…scalloped side hems for full freedom of movement…yes, please! The Moving Comfort Momentum Short boasts all of these benefits and then some. Stretch fabric moves with you whatever your pace, and color pops add a splash of energy. You can also stick with black if you’re looking for the classic “little black short”. Thanks MC for another great piece of powerful woman gear.

New Balance NBx Prism Short (Top Right)
Performance no longer means sacrificing aesthetic. The New Balance NBx Prism Short will keep up with you through long runs, speed drills or an even and easy jog. The secure zip back pocket is media-ready and has an “In Case of Emergency” tag so you can carry your emergency contact information wherever your run takes you. Streamlined design and lightweight fabric let you find your stride, and colored reflectivity matches mesh side splices. Genius!
