An Easy Way to Style Bike Shorts for Spring

An Easy Way to Style Bike Shorts for Spring

The 80s called, they want their bike shorts back… It’s official: I’m obsessed with this trend. I really didn’t think this was a trend I would be able to get on board with, but now that I own a pair I’ve completely changed my mind! I actually get so excited trying to style them new ways.

My personal favorite at the moment is styling bike shorts with an oversized jacket. From blazers to trench coats to denim jackets the options are endless. The key is to make sure the jacket fits oversized to offset the tight shorts. With the juxtaposition you get a chic look that looks effortless!

To keep the sporty chic look I was going for, I added a pair of sleek, neutral sneakers. I love that the overall palette was neutral which makes the outfit look more elevated—something that’s key when styling trendy pieces.

What I really love about this outfit is that you can wear it so many places. This easily looks like something you could wear to brunch with your girlfriends. Or maybe you just left the gym and need to run errands—pop on the denim jacket over your sports bra and go! If I was still in college, I would definitely wear this to class! The best part about this outfit is that although it looks super chic (always a win), it’s comfortable to boot.

To finish off this look I accessorized with minimal gold jewelry, sunglasses, and my go-to bag. I definitely think a ball cap would be cute with this outfit too!

So, have I sold you on bike shorts yet? Now that I bought my first pair I want a million more! On my list are a pair of leopard ones and some neon ones. Let me know what you think in the comments below.
