One of the perks of welcoming spring weather is the excitement of changing out your winter wardrobe for bright, spring favorites. If you're already sick of leggings and fleece joggers, then bike shorts might be a great option to sport while on a long hike or during yoga. 

As of late, they've really experienced a resurgence in popularity for those outside of the cycling community. Bike shorts are lightweight, made with buttery soft fabric and come in an array of colors to go along with any top. Some on Instagram have also found ways to dress them up, so they make great day-to-night ensembles.

We scoured through our favorite sites and identified pairs that fit a number of qualifications: sweat-wicking fabric, high-waisted, come with pockets and most importantly, are aesthetically-pleasing. Below each product are also reviews from satisfied customers who thoroughly enjoy the item.

"These are one of the best shorts I own. I run 5 miles outdoors and they stay in place. Plus, I ride my stationary bike in these. They're true to size. Love them!"

"Love that the white leggings are not see through. Great fabrics and moves well with the body."

"These Nike One Luxe shorts feel very soft and comfortable to wear. I can easily move my legs without feeling any tightness from the shorts. The fit is very true to size for the large sized shorts I received, and nothing was too tight or loose. The fabric indeed felt luxurious like the name. My least favorite thing about these shorts is the weird petal pattern on the legs. The curved cut does not look flattering and I think it would look better with a straight cut. Overall it’s a great pair of yoga shorts."

"These are so comfortable. Similar to those leggings that were buttery soft but way better quality. They are definitely worth every penny. They fit like a glove and hug my body so well. The fabric is strong but not hot."

"My new favorite bike shorts!! The fabric is so soft and feels like butter. I love the high-rise waistband - super supportive and keeps everything in place. Perfect length, too!"

"Just received them and they fit like a glove, even on my curves. Perfect for hiking this summer!"

"These fit great. I also like how the mesh sides make them breathable and even more comfortable."
