Bike shorts is one of those trends that has been around for a few seasons now. I played around with the idea last summer, but never became a full fledged supporter of the idea. When I got these beige lace trimmed bike shorts from American Apparel, I was uncertain of my feelings towards them. Did I adore them? Or would they just end up as another one of those impulse buys that I am prone to? Later that night I got an idea, and as it so often happens, the idea came to me in a dream. The next morning this look is what came together. I am pretty satisfied with the outfit and have become convinced that when styled right, bike shorts can actually be a welcome addition to your wardrobe.
Styling Tips for Bike Shorts
1. Use them for layering under shorts, dresses and skirts.
2. Wear with oversized tees and leather jackets.
3. Try them out in a color other than black. A beige or nude pair is perfect for summer.
4. Wear under short skirts and dresses as a safeguard against sudden gusts of wind.
