Cylcing shorts have become so much more than a loungewear basic, they are a must-have that can be styled up or down depending on the occasion. Okay, so maybe they still look cute with a little crop top for the gym, but we are talking NEXT level looks. They are the flattering fit that your heatwave wardrobe never knew it needed. Paired with a masculine blazer and mules or a retro tee and chunky white trainers, these versatile little numbers are essential for every cool-girl’s wardrobe. Keep scrolling to see the ultimate influencer’s guide on how to style cycling shorts.
Bike shorts are basically Summer leggings and they are firm favourites with the Kardashians, Hadids, Rihanna and they were even loved by Princess Diana.
How to style cycle shorts 101
With a blazer
Team your cycling shorts with a blazer for a chic but effortless style. Keep it open with a matching co ord crop top, or fasten your blazer and don’t even stress about a top. You can dress this up for brunch by adding a pair of strappy square toe sandals or play it lowkey with white chunky trainers and sports socks.
With an oversized tee
You know those tees that are too long to wear with jeans but too short to wear on their own? Yeah that’s where cycling shorts come into play. Tuck them in, tie them up or just wear them together. Easy as that. This is the ultimate cool-girl loungewear option. Comfy, cool and versatile.
With a shirt
Opt for an oversized shirt to wear with your cycle shorts for an outfit that totally nails the awkward smart casual dress code. Keep it easy in a denim shirt, dress it up in an oversized silk blouse or opt for a classic crisp white shirt.
