The Athleisure Shorts That Are Blowing Up On TikTok

As the weather warms up, you're probably looking for some comfortable, stylish shorts to beat the heat. Many celebrities and influencers share their favorite pieces on TikTok, which builds lots of buzz and also causes some of the best TikTok trends to sell out occasionally. No doubt you've heard of the famous TikTok leggings from Amazon that Lizzo wore (via Entertainment Tonight). The stylish leggings emphasize your backside with a scrunched seam in the back. The nearly universally flattering leggings likely make you trust other hot style items from the popular social media platform. 

One such trendy item of athleisure clothing, called Free People The Way Home Shorts, blew up on TikTok in a huge way, according to Pop Sugar. These two-inch inseam shorts have gone viral for a good reason, it seems, and they've wracked up an impressive 4.7 stars, 512 positive reviews, and more than 13,705 likes on the Free People site. If shorts aren't your thing, you can also try out the style in trendy joggers.

Here's why these Free People shorts are so popular

The Free People The Way Home Shorts come in 10 stylish solid colors and several prints in sizes small through extra-large. These running-style shorts features a wide, ruched high waist, which is sure to flatten your stomach and provide excellent coverage while keeping you cool. The split hem gives you plenty of room for exercising or lounging during warm weather. The fact that they're pull-on styled and relaxed fit makes them even comfier during the summer months. At a price point of $30, they're probably more expensive than some of your gym shorts, but by all accounts, the Free People bottoms are worth trying. 

Pop Sugar recently reviewed the trendy shorts everybody on TikTok raved about. One of the top things the reviewer loved about her purchase is the amount of support the 4.5-inch waistband provides. Not only do they suck you in, but they help remind you to engage your core during a workout — a wine-win. Another big positive is the fabric isn't see-through. Overall, these TikTok-inspired shorts are worth a try this summer.
