Product Details

About a year ago, Lauren Fleshman brought us a pair of fancy tailored shorts she had purchased in Australia. They were made of silk and decidedly not for sport - but she was obsessed with the fit. The O design team immediately saw it as a chance to take an easy, lightweight summer short taken to a whole new level. The dress-shorts level. Using our Summer Roga™ fabric throughout, there is ample stretch; finished off with Filippa Edghill's exclusive Running Women print as a trim, plus custom-Oiselle detailing.

- Summer Roga™ fabric (85% nylon / 15% spandex)
- front hand pockets
- button closure
- rear elastic for great fit
- running women print at waistband
- machine wash cold, tumble dry low
- 5" inseam (all sizes)

finally, running shorts for the office

I wear these to work with a blouse and flats - SUPER comfy and the material plus pleats make them look just formal enough. Bonus: I can ride my bike to work wearing them too.

The shorts don't fit quite as loose as other reviewers said, but I did size down from my normal 6 to a 4, and they fit well. I would have liked to try both sizes, but I'm happy with these.

They're also a little shorter than I thought. I'm not shy about my legs, but the shorts could be a bit longer - just for professionalism. I notice that when I'm sitting down that the leg fabric rides up and basically all of my thighs are exposed. You can always pull the fabric back down, but I guess that happens since they're not very structured. Thankfully, I think that the high waist makes them look more modest even though the legs are shorter.

Great shorts

Went with my usual Oiselle size (10) and these fit great. Love the casual look. So light and comfortable for summer. Wore them over my swimsuit bottoms for float trips. Quick drying and overall flattering even with the pleats. I don’t usually care for pleats but these don’t create too much fullness that typically comes with pleats. Overall I’m very happy with these and will likely purchase another pair.

Comfortable and casual

Light, loose fitting, but don't look like you showed up to the BBQ in your gym clothes.

I wear a lot of my Oiselle gear not just for workouts but for casual wear, so it's nice to have an option that isn't obviously running clothes but are still just as comfy.

Fit wise, I'd agree with other reviews to size down. I like a loose fit in the leg but have a narrow waist, so I went for a 4 even though I wear a 6 in Roga. The waist comes up nice and high.

  • Delightfully loose fit in the legs, great fabric
  • Waist could be a little smaller

Love them, but size down!

the fit is HUGE. I am usually between a 6 and 8, i ordered the 6 and should have gotten the 4. I kept them anyway because as soon as i got them i wore them...a little frumpy because the sizing is so big, but the fabric is great and they are super cool and comfy for the muggy HTX.

Lovely, but size down!

These are cute everyday shorts for summer! The summer roga fabric will be awesome for warmer months and the length is perfect. Do size down -- the overall fit is a touch large. (I'm between sizes and ordered down and they were still rather loose.) The story print on the waistband is an awesome detail! Love these!
