16 Short Sets Reporting For Summer-Uniform Duty

The best way to breeze through summer, as far as your outfits are concerned, is by establishing the ultimate go-to uniform: a trendy unitard, for example, or a versatile summer dress that works for sofas and social settings alike. Since we've gotten so comfortable with living in matching sweatsuits for Zoom calls and WFH days, our hot-weather fashion interests are naturally traveling to short sets.
Consider the fuss-free appeal of sweat shorts, but better — because this getup completes itself for you. Whether it's a pair of patterned pieces from an indie retailer like Lisa Says Gah, or even a washable silk situation (it's a thing!), there are plenty of ways to dress the trend up or down to suit your looks over the months ahead. The best part? With your legs exposed, this is a uniform that'll earn you major style points without making you sweat. Peep our favorite short sets for summer lined up ahead.
