They're a work-from-home wardrobe essential.

For the majority of quarantine, I've been almost exclusively wearing leggings and joggers. I actually can't remember the last time I put on jeans. And that now summer is almost officially here, it's about time I transition to something that is equally comfortable, but far more seasonally appropriate. Enter: Los Angeles Apparel's Heavy Jersey Garment Dye Short Shorts. These shorts are soft yet structured, so they're both comfortable enough to lounge in around the house and substantial enough to wear outside. I like to think of them as a more adult version of my beloved childhood Soffe shorts, and just the upgrade my summer work-from-home wardrobe needs.

The shorts are made from shrink-free 100 percent cotton with an elastic waistband, making them comfortable and easy to move in, whether you're exercising or relaxing. They feature a slightly high-waisted fit, but you can adjust the waist based on your preference. And like any good gym shorts, they come with pockets. The shorts are available in 14 colors, from black and navy to dusty pink and sea foam, so whether you're looking for a neutral wardrobe staple or a pop of color, you can be sure to find a pair of shorts that fits your style. I opted for the shorts in coral, but you can bet I'll be adding more to my closet soon. Plus, if you're a fan of the monochromatic look, you can pair these shorts with a matching garment dyed mockneck sweatshirt.

But don't take it from me — shoppers also rave about the comfort and convenience of these shorts in reviews on the brand's website. "I love these. Love the color of the garment dyed dusty blue color, love the weight of the jersey, and the utility of the pockets," one reviewer wrote.

Another reviewer commented on how these shorts have become a go-to wardrobe item. "I only wear these shorts now. Comfortable, sturdy, perfect length [and] rise."
