8 Ways To Style Biker Shorts

This season is all about the 90's and biker or bicycle shorts are a key essential piece for the trend.

There are many different types to suit your style and needs from activewear to comfy cotton and light anti-chafing undies that are perfect with light Summer dresses.

We've put together 8 different ways to style this season's essential bicycle shorts.


1. Blazer

This is a great edgy look that's smart/casual. Keep your blazer open with a matching crop top or bandeau, or fasten your blazer and wear it with a waist belt. You can dress this style up by adding a pair of heels or sandals or play it down with chunky trainers or boots with sporty style socks.
