3 Ways to Wear the Biker Short Trend
Happy Friday guys! The weekend is here and I’m excited for two reasons: 1. We only have three more weekends left in SC. 2. I’m probably going to be wearing nothing but biker shorts all weekend. Speaking of, how are we feeling about the trend? Personally, I’m way obsessed. Which is saying something, because I typically try to avoid a lot of trends these days. But these little summer leggings, as I like to call them, have found a home in my wardrobe. If you’re a little on the fence about them, I get it. It can take a minute to warm up to some trends. So in today’s blog post, I’m going to give you three fool-proof looks you can create with items you probably already have in your closet! I’m SO pumped to share 3 ways to wear the biker short trend!
Everyday Casual + Monochrome
This is one of the easiest ways to style biker shorts. If you have a black pair of shorts, throw on an oversized black or white tee and a pair of sneakers. Complete the look by adding a printed belt bag or crossbody. I LOVE this cute little faux snakeskin bag from Target. I don’t know why, but I think a belt bag is so necessary with these shorts haha. You can also add a denim jacket (of course) to make it a little more exciting. I think the denim takes it from casual to lunch-date appropriate. Overall, I think this outfit is SO chic and trendy at the same time. For me, these little shorts are quickly becoming a major summer staple.

This way of styling biker shorts was what initially drew me to the trend. I saw so many Pins where women had paired the short with an oversized blazer and I just thought it looked so chic. So to dress up the biker shorts, I’ve paired them with my favorite Topshop blazer in sea foam green. (Sadly it’s from last year and sold out, but I’ll link similar ones!) It’s probably my favorite color right now and I love it paired with black. Underneath the blazer, I just threw on a simple cropped cami (a bodysuit would also be a great option here) for a sleek, put together look. I kept my shoes simple with my favorite block heeled sandal, and of course I stuck with this cute little printed belt bag.

The third way I like to style biker shorts is for athleisure and lounging around. This is one of the easiest ways to try out the trend to see if you like it before jumping in. I am obsessed with these white biker shorts. They go with literally everything, and um, can you say HELLO tan legs?! I’ve paired them with this incredibly soft, lightweight pullover which is perfect for beach weather or if you’re like me and get cold sitting at home haha. I love the monochrome look, obviously, but you could pair any color with these shorts. I absolutely love the look of pairing biker shorts with any kind of oversized top like a sweatshirt, sweater, etc. My shoes are my new Adidas Originals with a light pink stripe. I have been looking at these shoes for forever and I finally snagged a pair on major sale. They are SO comfy guys. And last but not least, I turned by belt bag into a crossbody by tossing it over my shoulder. A super fun way to repurpose the same bag. This would make for the perfect travel outfit!

Honestly, I could have given you like 5 more biker short outfits, but I thought I’d keep it simple for now haha. What are your favorite ways to wear the biker short trend?
