We could all use a little fresh air right now, and fortunately the weather is starting to feel a bit springlike. That means it’s time for running outside, and these cheery, floral Outdoor Voices shorts (currently 20 percent off) are just right for ushering in the season. Strategist senior writer Karen Iorio Adelson is a fan, writing that “the flat, wide waistband keeps everything sucked in while still letting my legs move freely.” We even included them in a roundup of the best summer shorts, since they’re nice-looking enough for coffee-shop runs. With a side zip and pockets along the waistband, there’s plenty of room for storing keys, cash, or energy gels. If the bright “Paprika Blooms” print isn’t your thing, the shorts are also on sale in a more muted cocoa brown.
The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
