2-carmon38_08271544224_copy_1_Long gone are the days of schlubby polyester gym shorts.

Recently, we’ve been seeing an influx of slightly reflective, super chic workout shorts that we’ve affectionately dubbed “shiny shorts.” The windbreaker-like nylon fabric is flattering and cool, with a faux-leather crinkle.

Made by fitness fashion brands like The Upside, ADay, and Koral, shiny shorts can easily transition into fall by pairing them with sleek basic black leggings for a seriously slouchy-edgy-cool workout look. They’ll also look great on your next treadmill workout.

Here are five pairs that will give your sweat style some downtown cred. Shine on, shiny shorts wearers! —Jamie McKillop
