Whether you like it or not, there's no denying that the bike shorts trend has reached new heights as of late and will undeniably be one of the coolest looks of the summer. The '80s style is geek-chic at it's normcore best and seeing as it's comfy AF to boot, I will probably get behind it this season. Yes, the Kardashians are partly to thank for its revival (they've nailed high brow sporty style with some help from Yeezy), but Princess Diana rocked bike shorts out and about way before any of the sisters even knew what fashion really was, so I'm going with her as my style inspiration for the trend.
In terms of how to wear bike shorts, pairing them with cropped hoodies and tees will always work if a casual athletic look is what you're going for. They're generally high-waisted so the proportions work well together. You can also pair them with a mini dress and have them peek out from underneath, or if a more polished look is what you're after, wear them with heels and a button-up shirt that's belted at the waist. Really, they are what you make of them, so go wild and make them your own.
From printed to velvet to solid to everything in between, the below round-up of bike shorts has a little bit of everything.
