20 Style Tips On How To Actually Wear Bike Shorts

Bike shorts have recently been added to the long list of surprising things that have turned into big fashion trends. Before you say “I can never pull off bike shorts when I’m not on a bike” hold up. No one ever thought crop tops would translate off the runways and red carpet. Yet, look at where we are now. The same thing is already happening with bike shorts. They’re making a case to be the new leggings with celebrities championing the sporty shorts for all occasions.

I know that you’re not a celebrity or a professional athlete, but you can still get into the bike shorts trend. Once you experiment them, you’ll see that they can be quite versatile. Oh, and they’re comfortable. (Thank you, stretchy material.) And I promise that if you style them right, they will not look ridiculous.

Not sure where to begin? Take a look at 20 wearable ways to wear bike shorts.

Blazers and bike shorts is a combination we’ve been seeing everywhere. You can wear it, too. The addition of the boots and graphic tee add on a few different references but black brings the entire outfit together.


8. Belted Polka Dot Shacket And Bike Shorts

Think bike shorts can’t be chic? Think again. You could legit wear this to go out.


9. Black Hoodie And Bike Shorts

If you’re wearing bike shorts, own the sporty vibe with a hoodie paired with socks and sneakers. Don’t forget the socks. They add another element to the look and do make a difference.


10. Baseball Cap, White Blouse, Bike Shorts, And Clutch

Because bike shorts do not need to always be paired with T-shirts and crop tops.


11. Black And White Chevron Crop Top And Bike Shorts 

Show off the higher waist of a pair of bike shorts with a crop top. Choose tops with longer sleeves to get the most wear out of the ensemble this fall.
