Bike Shorts Summer Trend

17.09.18

By now, we're used to the athleisure concept. The trend that dominated 2017, crept into our wardrobes slowly but surely. And before we knew it we were sporting sneakers to work and matching tracksuits to brunch!

And now it's time to introduce the bike shorts trend this summer 2019.

Until now the trend has been spearheaded by Kim Kardashian who may not have invented the bike shorts trend, but she's partially responsible for bringing this trend back into style.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashian's star has stepped out on more than on occasion wearing bike shorts, the most recent being on the red carpet at the Beautycon Festival. Kim wore a look by Dolce & Gabbana to the Los Angeles event which she matched with a corset.

Popping up on the runway for a number of brands including  Alexander Wang, Dion Lee, Tommy Hilfiger and Dolce & Gabbana has us asking ourselves: is it finally time to invest?

Bike shorts are the versatile, sleek tomboy alternative to feminine skirts and dresses – and they are this spring and summer’s new cool-girl staple.

Find out how to embrace the trend this season with the following styling tips.

Casual Style

If there was one way to make bike shorts even more comfy, it would be to pair it with an oversized tee and your favourite flats. What's not to love about casual comfort?
