Athleisure shorts with built-in lifehacks? Um, yes.

Since I’m a daily fitness gal who works from home (*thbbbbt*), I’ve totally embraced the athleisure/fitness-wear-all-day-erry-day trend. It’s pretty much my dream come true. However, I have noticed that some gym shorts are… how can I put this nicely? Stupid.

It’s not their fault, they just weren’t designed with use in mind. What we really need are shorts with pockets for our earbuds on a jog. A place to store our ID and debit card when we’re taking a walk to Trader Joes. No weird giant bulge in the front, but moisture-wicking like a mofo. And fashionable to boot. Where can we find such a wonder?

Enter Wu & Y. With designs by artists, athletic material, 4 zippered pockets and even a secret pocket just inside, these are just what the doctor ordered.

The cut is high on the the thighs for the women’s style, a retro-classic gym shorts look, and the designs are totally unique. This one is Deep Soup by Varvara Gorbash.

Into it? Me too! Help me out and support them grassroots style on Kickstarter: http://kck.st/1tzm7AI

But hurry, the campaign only has a few more days!

Which design is your favorite?

    1. Sheena – if you fund the Kickstarter I linked above, you get a pair in the design of your choice. (They also have some cute socks with pineapples on them!) It’s not that big of a pledge required, and trust me there is room for the proverbial motor in the back of your Honda.
