Whether you like it or not, cycling shorts look set to be bigger than ever for Spring/Summer 2019.
The tight fitting piece of clothing – which has slowly been making a comeback over the past few years (mostly thanks to Kim Kardashian West) – appeared on the catwalks at Fashion Week locations across the globe, representing it to be big for this year.
And what do you know: after Fendi, Chanel and Stella McCartney catwalks showed us how to wear the fitted shorts and basic leggings, it has finally embraced our high streets.
How do you wear the cycling shorts trend?
The shorts and leggings trends has been shown to be worn on the catwalks in black, and teamed with elegant fitted jackets or ladylike button-up cardigans, giving a very grown-up and Chanel-worthy spin on the trend.
I personally like them, but they quite a bit to get your head around at first, deciding what to pair them with. Once you nail a top/blazer combo to match, I think you’ll feel more comfortable with it…
Or you could take some inspo from Fendi. At Fashion Week, they also chose to glam up the bike short, showing them in a workwear-appropriate capacity on Bella Hadid with a structured button-up shirt, glossy court shoes and some statement specs.
The Italian label also styled them in slightly more athletic ways too, with a matching sports bra and a clear jacket, as well as with a cropped faux fur coat and a topknot.
Thoughts? Would you wear the cycling short trend?
