Bike Shorts Are the Hottest Athleisure Trend Right Now


SPOTTED: CELEBRITIES IN BIKE SHORTS, THE HOTTEST ATHLEISURE TREND RIGHT NOW

Author SPORT.LES / Published: May-11-2020

WE NEVER THOUGHT WE'D SAY THIS, BUT HERE WE ARE: THE LEGGING TREND IS MAJORLY LOSING STEAM. IT'S NOT THAT THEY'RE GOING ANYWHERE—WE DEFINITELY ALL NEED THEM IN OUR LIVES—BUT THEY'RE MORE OF A WARDROBE STAPLE THAN THE TREND THAT THEY WERE A FEW YEARS AGO. ON THE FLIP SIDE, THERE'S ANOTHER ATHLEISURE TREND THAT'S RAPIDLY GAINING STEAM AS OF LATE: BIKE SHORTS.

 

So how do we know that bike shorts are eclipsing leggings right now? Trusted retail analytics company Edited recently released a study about current activewear trends, and in it, it named bike shorts as the trend of the season this year. Edited's studies show that the trend has increased by 2000% in the non-active apparel category and by 363% in the activewear category, and it credits none other than Kim Kardashian West and her parade of Yeezy looks.

So, we're well aware that cycling shorts are so much more than a wardrobe staple for actual cycling. And we could also say that bike-shorts trend is even more polarizing than leggings. But we want to point out that they're easier to wear than you'd think. Whether you’re wearing them out with an oversize blazer for cooler fall temps or layering them under a slip dress that's gathered or tucked just enough to reveal your spandex bottoms for a summer night out, we fully approve. Our special tip: just add a blazer and a pair of sneakers or block-heel sandals, and you have yourself a winning bike-shorts outfit. Shop the bike shorts that are coming for your legging collection below, and see which celebs are wearing them as of late:

TIP 1: BY ROMEE STRIJD

Make your bike shorts more tailored with the addition of a structured blazer. Have fun with the sportswear vibe, though, and keep it casual with a pair of basic sneakers.

TIP 5: BY SOPHIE TURNER

Keep it simple with a button-down shirt. More tailored than a T-shirt, but just as simple when it comes to the wardrobe essential's throw-on-and-go nature, it's the perfect pairing for your new favorite shorts trend. Wear it like Sophie Turner in fresh blue and white tones with the new Unicorn Biker Short from Onzie.
