I tried the trend that everyone is speaking about: the bike shorts!
The 90’s iconic bike shorts are back in style
Definitely, the 7-year-old in me is really happy with this comeback. Indeed, in the 90’s, I use to wear the cycling shorts almost every day (my favorite combo was to wear them with a Lion King sweater!).
Reintroduced in 2018, the bike shorts are worn with elevated clothes such a blazer and were on the runways of famous designers such as Nina Ricci, Off-White, and Dion Lee. In 2019, the bike short is the new yoga pants! Find below some inspirations from the runway and how I wear it on a daily basis.

How to choose your cycling shorts
What I like about these bike shorts that they aren’t all about showing some leg – think mid-length culottes for a more boyish and more flattering look. For the fabrics, I like them in viscose or cotton, they should not be as tight as your regular fitness shorts.

Elevated: The bike shorts with a blazer
For an elevated look, I will wear them with a belted blazer. You can also dress these shorts down with a stylish tee or blouse and a belt bag.
