Does the thought of wearing bike shorts conjure up instant fear? Or does it remind you of a time past that you don’t want to revisit?
You’re not alone in struggling to style women’s biker shorts for who you are today.
If you’re over 30 years of age, you’ll likely recall a time when women’s bike shorts were *it*.
It was called the 1980s.
A time when hot pink dominated the fashion runways and before stretch fabrics really made a debut. Luckily, bike shorts have come a long way since then and are incredibly popular and flattering on all body types.
Figuring out what to wear with biker shorts can make or break the style as an essential in your capsule wardrobe. Fundamentally, a capsule wardrobe needs to contain only items that you wear on repeat - you don’t have space for non-functional clothing that is rarely worn.
Like many trends, what goes around comes around and a few seasons back, women’s bike shorts started to appear everywhere.
At Encircled, we don’t love to follow the trends - slow fashion is all about being timeless over trendy, however, this ‘trend’ of bike shorts has stuck around, so we’re committing to it as a new capsule wardrobe essential for summer.
We’ve made our sustainable version of a classic bike short from locally knit and dyed MicroModal Lycra. Stretchy, soft and incredibly resilient these shorts will be your new fav.
The look: Bike Shorts a Classic Tank + Sneakers
The look: Bike Shorts an oversized blazer and tee
Recreate this look: The Fair Bike Short with the Unblazer and sleeveless Unbodysuit. Your fav heels
The Look: Bike Shorts with an oversized lightweight cardigan, tone on tone tank
The Look: Biker Shorts a Sweatshirt + Sneakers
The look: Bike Shorts a shacket or oversized blazer with tee shirt + Sneakers
The Look: Bike Shorts, a bandeau bra + Sneakers
The Look: Bike Shorts an oversized white button-up + slides
We’d love to hear how children of the 80s and 90s are rocking the bike short trend in their own way.
