I’m sure you’ve seen the bike short trend numerous times on social media within the last year, but, how many of you have actually tried it IRL? I’m a culprit of scrolling past outfits that I love on social media, and then deciding it’s a look that I could never pull off. If you’ve noticed yourself doing the same thing, I’m here to help ya out!
The most important step is finding the perfect pair of shorts. I was on the hunt for a mid-length short, I LOVE the Lululemon Align shorts but they’re a tiny bit shorter than I wanted; I opted for the Atmosphere 7” short from Aritzia which are the perfect length (and half the price!). The waist band is snug and they’re super flattering!
This first look is definitely the one I wear the most. I’ve paired the shorts with an oversized long sleeve (but I’ll often swap it for an oversized crewneck) and added a pair of chunky boots. It’s the perfect on-the-go look that’s put together but also super comfy! You could also pair it with sneakers if you’re going for a more casual vibe.
This second look is perfect for dinner or a night out! I love pairing these shorts with different blazers, and a cute pair of heels spices it up a bit.
The last look is another casual one; I’ve added an oversized denim jacket, fanny pack and my favourite sneakers. I’ve gotten a ton of use out of this long line denim jacket and love the way it looks with the shorts!
Let me know if you try out any of these looks!
