How To Style: Your Bike Shorts

No longer just a workout staple, the bike short has officially come back for a long day trip.

They can be seen brunching with friends on a Sunday morning, strolling through the city streets for a bit of window shopping, and – for the most daring – even on a fancy night out. Whether you make or follow trends, here are some fun ways to take your bike shorts from sporty to fabulous.

Let the Shanti Bike Shorts play their truest game by pairing them with a sweater, your favorite hoodie, or a fuzzy zip-up to feel cozy to and from the gym or for a stylish errand run.

Layer the Let’s Talk About Sets (it comes with the comfiest bra!) or the Seamless Rib Bike Short under any dresses for extra warmth, and under tunics for a bit of extra coverage.

Pair them with a short top like the Shine Bright Blouse, or tie the Lovelands Button Down at the waist, add some fun accessories and let even the simple Seamless Lace Shorts get the spotlight. 

And lastly, why not dress up your shorts? Grab an oversized suit jacket, or the Delfina Tie Dye Kimono, and finish off your look with a fancy pair of shoes. I recommend a strappy sandal like the Dana Woven Flat or the Jessa Platform for that extra height.

Thank you for the inspo! I’m still a bit wary of bike shorts at the moment… I really don’t think they’d suit me! These ladies look lovely in them, though!
