With hidden side seams and the option for side piping, these shorts are the perfect blend of fashion and function. A subtle front slit adds visual interest, while the optional pockets in the back are a stylish and practical addition. Choose from one or two pockets, or keep it minimalistic and leave them off altogether. The pockets feature a simple gapped opening or an invisible zipper, depending on your preference. For those who want a bit more coverage, an athletic shorts layer can be added, making these shorts the perfect choice for any activity.
