There are some trends that we expect to have a longer shelf life than others, but believe me when I say bike shorts were not a trend that fell into the category of projected longevity. As much as we love the trend, the concept of wearing little spandex shorts alongside oversize tops and blazers seemed like it would lose its hype fairly quickly. However, according to the overwhelming presence of the style on Instagram during fashion month, we could not have been more wrong.
Both on and off the runway, influencers, celebrities, and editors 'grammed the hell out of bike shorts. Thanks to the influencers' insanely innovative styling techniques, we now have a laundry list of ways to wear the trend, and thanks to the runway, we have a shopping list worth looking forward to come spring. Ahead, get ready to see our favorite bike-short moments throughout fashion week and shop the pieces you'll need to partake in the trend.
Influencers all over the world have taken a liking to this bike-short trend, which is only good news for us. Thanks to their obsession with the athleisure style, we have more than enough outfit ideas should we choose to participate in the trend.
During NYFW, it seemed like everyone and their mother Instagrammed the neon orange bike shorts at Maryam Nassir Zadeh. Are we complaining? Absolutely not. But as fashion month continued, there were more noteworthy biker moments that you should definitely see.
