While some people take winter to turn into ski bunnies and hit the slopes, I choose to hibernate and save all of my energy for SUMMER. Because when those temps begin to soar (the hotter + more humid, the better), that’s when I find the most energy to amp up my personal wellness routines. 

First up on my summer wellness agenda? Find shorts to move in. I turned to Vuori and tried out five shorts from its summer catalog (spoiler alert: This pair is my fave…although they’re all GOOD).

I want shorts for every summer activity, from jogging to playing at the park. Enter: Vuori. I'm trying 5 pairs (like bike & boyfriend styles) that'll keep me active as the temps rise.

5 Vuori Shorts That Are Keeping Me Active This Summer: Try-On

When it comes to being active in the summertime, I’ve worn bike shorts nearly exclusively for the past 5 years. I still adore them, but recently I’ve been looking for a looser, breathable option to add to my collection (and to refresh my older well-loved bike shorts, while we’re at it).

With Vuori making some of my very favorite performance pieces, I wanted to see what it had to offer for shorts this season. I tried out the Studio Pocket Short, Cardiff Short, Clementine Short 2.0, Boyfriend Short and Halo Boxy Short. From jogging to squats to playing all afternoon at the park with my kid, I wanted to find shorts for every summer activity.

1. Vuori Clementine Short 2.0

The Clementine Short 2.0 from Vuori is stretchy & has a built-in mesh liner (my favorite).

The Clementine Short 2.0 from Vuori is stretchy and has a built-in mesh liner (my favorite), and is also available in a ton of colors — we’re talking more than 10 options. I’ve looked at this style from Vuori multiple times but had never tried it on before now. Turns out, my hesitation was a major mistake. These athletic shorts are phenomenal.

My first impression is that I could easily wear these shorts from sunup to sundown because they’re so much more comfortable than I imagined. The slight curvature in the leg is wildly flattering, and the key pocket is great when pulling these on to hit the trails. They have a shorter 2.5-inch inseam, which elongates the leg, and you don’t have to worry about any flashing mishaps with that built-in liner.


2. Vuori Cardiff Short

The design of the Vuori Cardiff Shorts is everything I want in a pair of breezy workout shorts.

I was most excited to try Vuori’s Cardiff Short. The design is everything I want in a pair of breezy summer shorts, and the contrasting white hems are especially appealing.

My favorite thing about the Vuori Cardiff Short is the wider waistband.

My favorite thing about the Cardiff Short is the wider waistband. I feel securely held in without it being too tight, and not having a drawstring allows for seamless layering with any tops. The shorts are also moisture-wicking and have anti-odor tech, so apart from being super-cute, these shorts can actually go the distance in performance!


3. Vuroi Boyfriend Short

Vuori's Boyfriend Shorts are the perfect lounge & travel shorts, & I’m even tempted to sleep in them.

Vuori’s Boyfriend Short is made from the same dreamy material as everyone’s favorite joggers. These shorts are the perfect lounge and travel shorts, and I’m even tempted to sleep in them.

At 3.5", this Boyfriend Short also has a longer inseam than most of Vuori’s shorts, which makes it a comfortable fit for longer legs.

The shape of Vuori’s Boyfriend Short is what I consider to be a modern-day version of basketball shorts. There’s a drawstring on the inside, which makes these shorts very versatile in fit, while still having a seamless layering ability with any tighter tops you might want to wear. At 3.5 inches, the Boyfriend Short also has a longer inseam than most of Vuori’s shorts, which makes it a comfortable fit for longer legs (and again, I can’t stress enough how good these would be for traveling!).


4. Vuori Halo Boxy Short

The waist of these Vuori shorts is nice + high, complete w/ a slight paperbag waistband & tie that look cute w/ fitted tops.

Mixing modern silhouettes with performance-apparel perks, Vuori’s Halo Boxy Short is probably the most versatile of this roundup. I love how the waist is nice and high, complete with a slight paperbag waistband and tie that look incredibly cute with fitted tops. These are shorts that would be super-easy (and totally fun) to style up for casual wear outside of any workouts or activities.

These Vuori shorts are moisture-wicking, stretchy & have an inseam of 3.5 inches.

These performance shorts are moisture-wicking, stretchy and, like the Boyfriend Short, have an inseam of 3.5 inches. They do seem to run a bit wider and loose, so I might consider sizing down!


5. Vuori Studio Pocket Short

In hopes to refresh some of my much older, well-loved bike shorts, I grabbed Vuori’s Studio Pocket Short to add to the mix.

In hopes to refresh some of my much older, well-loved bike shorts, I grabbed Vuori’s Studio Pocket Short to add to the mix. These shorts are compressive & super-smoothing — yet ultra-soft. They’re complete with pockets that not only are functional (there’s an inside stash pocket too) but also actually lay well on such fitted shorts. 

These Vuori bike shorts have pockets that not only are functional but also lay well on such fitted shorts.

You can scoop up these bike shorts in black, which would certainly go the distance in your wardrobe, but Vuori also puts out some of the most amazing seasonal colors that I always find impossible to pass up!


Vuori really came out swinging with five shorts that are not only functional but also stinkin’ cute. The best part might be how unique each one is…making it, uhhh, quite hard to choose just one, if you know what I mean! Which one is your favorite?!
