We are living in leggings most of the time. They are easy to style. We can sweat in them, lounge around the house in them and run errands in them – nothing is more important than this during the pandemic! Yet as days get warmer, leggings can be too much sometimes. This week I went to the gym in a pair of Seamless Laser Cut Leggings and realized that it’s time to change to a thinner pair or go straight to biker shorts.
Biker shorts have come back in style in recent years, with summer being the peak season. If you’ve seen Gigi Hadid’s recent street look, you know that they are not going anywhere this summer either. Bike shorts are essentially leggings but with shorter hems, and therefore they can be worn much the same way as leggings. Furthermore, bike shorts can be a safe layer under your summer dress!
Over the years biker shorts have evolved into many different lengths, designs and styles with great properties such as body contouring, anti-chafing and sweat wicking, to name a few. If you are looking for some classic black or gray bike shorts, bike shorts with fun colors or prints, or even with pockets, you definitely don’t want to miss out on these 10 options.
