I Broke Up With My Leggings for Bike Shorts—and I Didn't Hate It

The resurgence of the bike short trend as seen on Kim Kardashian West and Emily Ratajkowski brought back a memory I hadn’t thought of in a while: In college, I wore bike short to class a lot. It was the mid-’00s, it was a campus with a very laid-back dress code, and in between classes and my college dance team, I was in and out of dance rehearsals about five days a week. This is practical, is probably something I’d say to justify a pretty inappropriate look for an academic setting. All this didn’t stop me from getting back into a pair of spandex shorts in public last week.
