That first touch of summer is in the air and it’s got us thinking of two things: ice cream and shorts weather. While we can’t whip up a fresh batch of, say, PB&J ice cream sandwiches for you from afar, we can sing this from the rooftops: Spanx fan-favorite On-the-Go shorts collection has expanded to include delightful new colors.

Spanx’s beloved On-the-Go shorts are such a hit that one of our writers who usually hates wearing shorts changed her mind thanks to this ultra-flattering design. “My favorite feature of the On-the-Go shorts is how well they flatter my waist while elongating my legs thanks to their A-line cut,” Nina Huang previously wrote on the comfy bottoms. “Plus, the shorts are so breathable that I actually wore them while running around doing bridesmaid duties for a wedding in Arizona, and they kept my legs and lower back breezy and sweat-free throughout the 100-degree-Fahrenheit day,” she added. Choose from either 4- or 6-inch inseams, depending on where on your thighs you like your shorts to hit.

Now, shoppers eager to slip on these supremely airy and stylish shorts can do so in two new colorways. For the On-the-Go 4- and 6- inch Shorts, pick them up in Bronze Glow, a lovely rusty brown that almost functions like a neutral. Or opt for a bold design with the new On-the-Go Printed Shorts, 4-inch in Tropical Palm Navy ($92), a fun leaf-covered pattern that works as nicely with tennis sneakers as it does with heels.

No matter the seam or style, both of these shorts feature the ultra-comfy cotton, rayon, and elastane fabric blend that includes four-way stretch. For added support, the shorts have a core shaping technology that fits your curves—without digging buttons or zippers. The slip-on shorts are designed to hit at your natural waist for all-day comfort that pairs well with most tops, whether you’re choosing a light sweater, tank, or flowy tunic. Just note: Many shoppers have said that the shorts run large, so the brand recommends sizing down if you’re in between the sizes ranging from XS to XL.

Get ready to blast the AC, put on these form-flattering shorts, and head to an ice cream shop near you pronto.
