HOW TO STYLE BIKER SHORTS!
Who else has ditched their leggings/jeans for something more stretchy and comfy like biker shorts? I HAVE! I started wearing them last year when they became trendy, and guess what? They're still here to stay even in 2020! They won't be going anywhere, anytime soon! That's fantastic news to me, you, and the whole world because these shorts are a total CATCH!
One thing's for sure, with quarantine this year and the hot summer, my cycling shorts have been a true savior. I keep rotating them, one pair after the other. Now, I have a pretty good idea of all the ways I like to style them most. This is why I knew, I had to write this post!
Plus, you know that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is starting in a few hours...begins August 19 (opens to general public), so now is the perfect time to stock-up on a few pairs for a lot less than usual. It's a WIN, WIN situation!
And read further to find-out my favorite ways to style my cycling shorts! They're a great statement for a cool athleisure look, which you can take anywhere. So good for travel, weekends, going hiking or hanging out at home. Take your pick and let's get biking!!! hahaha!
First up, you need a WILD print!🐆
Biking short bottoms, which scream, "Yep, I've got power and I'm not afraid to use it!" Here comes the snake print, leopard, or you can even go with the trendiest splashes of tie-dye or cute florals. It's all in YOUR FAVOR! Whatever your taste-buds love the most!
My favorite are these leopard cycling shorts! I wear them a ton and here is how I like to style them most. I love having the biking shorts be the highlight of my look especially when in animal print, so I keep the rest of the look pretty simple. At the top I would add a crop tee or occasionally go for a long blazer. To pump-up the look, you can even tie a denim shirt or a bomber jacket at your waist. This would make you feel more bad-ass and will make you look street-style cool.
Also, no matter if you're a sneakers or heels type of girl, biking shorts work with both. You can switch it up every time. Most often I wear mine with sneakers even though I'm a heels type of girl because I'm in LOVE with that effortless athleisure style. The one where you didn't try, but you kind of did, because you look BOMB! hahaha!😂
What's your go-to look with a print pair of cycling shorts?
Next up, you need a PLAIN pair of biker shorts!
Here the opposite applies! Whenever I wear my grey cycling shorts, I let the top be bright and colorful. For example, I would throw on a colorful t-shirt or sweatshirt just because I like that contrast. Some days I go completely monochrome, matching the color of my shorts with my top. That's another really fun way to style your biker shorts.
My all time favorite look is simply adding an oversized t-shirt. This way I get to focus more on the accessories and the vibe of the exact look I'm going after. Plus, I always seem to add a jacket to keep it more interesting. It doesn't mean I'll actually wear it, but I carry it around or tie it around the waist. That to me is the ideal way to wear your cycling shorts. What's yours?
Now all that's left is for me to let you enjoy the Nordstrom sale where you can stock up on all your favorites! Happy shopping! Talk to you soon!!!🥰
