When we talk about bike shorts, your sartorial impulse most likely suggests they have to be paired with extra large shirts or a sports bra and jacket, complete with chunky sneakers. But with the influx of new trends this season, we're seeing bike shorts with a set of fresh eyes: There's actually an updated way to wear this athleisure staple!
Just take a look at Georgina Wilson-Burnand's monochromatic green outfit. To give her take on bike shorts a feminine twist, she chose a neon-colored pair and teamed it up with a long satin shirt buttoned all the way up. This effectively gave a luxe feel to her body-hugging bottoms. She then completed her look with square-toed heels in exotic skin leather, resulting in a more polished, put-together vibe. You can easily cop her look by experimenting with fabrics and color—opt for silk, velvet, or even embellished pieces, and then slip on some high heels to dress up your bike shorts in a non-sporty way.
