Trends come and go, but only a few are strong enough to withstand months, and even years, of scrutiny. The bike-short trend is one of these. Even though they've been hot for a minute now (at least since the beginning of 2018), they're not going anywhere anytime soon. They're all over Instagram (on influencers and editors alike), and they're particularly popular in trend-setting places like L.A. and NYC. In fact, some fashion girls have ditched their leggings altogether, opting to wear the shorter and cooler cycling style instead.
Celebrities are fans of the humble bike short, too. A-listers like Emily Ratajkowski, Romee Strijd, Jasmine Sanders, and Kim Kardashian West have all made bike shorts their summertime closet staple, and they're styling them in the coolest ways. We have proof. Keep scrolling to see how some of our favorite fashion-forward celebrities wear their bike shorts.
Romee Strijd pairs her basic black bike shorts with a matching crop top and a neon-green blazer. This outfit, when worn with high sneakers and a micro-bag, is a true ode to '90s style.
We're calling it: Kim Kardashian West is the queen of bike shorts. She was a driving force behind the trend in the first place, and since they became mainstream, she's styled them in multiple ways. Here's one of our favorite takes. She pairs her shorts with a hoodie and a Matrix-style leather coat.
