8 Reasons Why Influencers Love Bike Shorts

When the bike shorts trend first made its way to the streets, I’ll admit that I was a little hesitant. I mean sure, maybe Kim Kardashian and some of my favourite influencers can pull it off, but can I? 

My bike shorts are now considered a wardrobe staple, especially as the weather starts to warm up. In fact, there are a slew of reasons why I finally understand why influencers love the bike shorts trend so much! 

Here are 8 reasons why influencers love bike shorts! 

1. They’re comfortable 

With so many of us now working from home and only heading out for necessities, comfort is everything! Thanks to their athleisure finish, bike shorts are designed to be soft, lightweight and moisture-wicking, for the ultimate comfort piece. 


2. We love the extra coverage 

While bike shorts might seem intimidating, they actually provide more coverage than your regular pair of yoga or jean shorts - I’m loving it! The extra thigh coverage makes me feel more secure and confident when I step out in shorts. 

3. They’re surprisingly easy to style 

Bike shorts have got to be one of the most easy items to style I have ever owned. Wear your bike shorts with an oversized T-shirt and your favourite sneakers, and your outfit is ready! It’s that easy. 


4. They’re versatile 

Bike shorts are also really versatile meaning you can dress them up, or dress them down. Seriously, bike shorts can easily be appropriate for an office look when paired with a blazer and sandals. 

5. They’re made for all bodies 

Bike shorts are a versatile wardrobe piece that can look good on any body type! Girls of all shapes and sizes across instagram are styling bike shorts with various styling techniques. Moreover, bike shorts are often made with a high-waistband for a figure flattering look. 


6. They’re different 

This trend has really offered a closet refresh. The bike shorts trend is different from other shorts trends we’ve seen in recent years and it’s a nice change. If you’re looking for a piece that is really new and different - give bike shorts a try. 


7. They’re light and compact 

Bike shorts are the ultimate go anywhere piece! They’re light and compact, which makes them ideal to pack for weekend getaways or even to keep in your purse when you’re not sure what the day might throw your way. 


8. They’re perfect for summer 

If you’ve been thinking about giving bike shorts a try, now is the time - hence their current popularity on instagram! Summer is the perfect occasion to give this trend a try and a way to make the transition from pants to shorts a little easier this season.
