Biker shorts (or bike shorts or cyclism shorts) are apparently the hugest thing in Fashion
Allllllll the influencers have been “sporting” them lately. We’ve seen Kim Kardashian West pairing them with crop tops and hoodies all season long… And for more proof that it’s definitely a thing, just know that Kylie been wearing them, too. They’ve also popped up on the runway, notably in Dolce & Gabbana SS 2018 fashion show.
But for us mere mortals, how doable are bike shorts actually? Like, can the rest of us REALLY pull off that business casual bike lewk??
The micro-leggings look is, of course, a tough one to pull off. Bike shorts are to thighs as thong heels are to feet and toes: They show EVERYTHING!!! But then again, that’s the whole point and what’s more, they’re a fresh, tomboyish alternative to the typical slinky party dress. Seriously, I’ve long been leaning into the look. They are perfect for showing your legs. It’s body-con and spandex, which is actually super-flattering. They hold you in. Plus, they are easy to dress up in a very now way. Instead of making them 80s by sporting them under a big top, you should go early noughties and wear them with a going-out top, sexy heels and fancy stuffs.
Honestly, I can imagine plenty of fashionable ways to wear them already.
