Biker shorts have been peculating as a trend for several seasons, inspired in part by the nude body-conscious looks Kanye West has shown throughout various Yeezy presentations. Designers took the ball and ran with the trend with spring 2018 collections, most notably Off-White designer Virgil Abloh’s Princess Diana-inspired presentation, which was closed out by Naomi Campbell wearing a white pair.
This summer in particular, biker shorts have been worn by the Kardashians, Bella Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski and every single Instagram influencer with over 10,000 followers.
While the average Instagram model may place an emphasis on flaunting curves, the sleek and minimalist styling of cycling shorts provides a ton of ‘fit options. Whether neon, black or pinstripe, the silhouette is versatile enough to be dressed up or down, providing a fresh update on ‘90s nostalgia.
