Bike shorts can be one of the most intimidating clothing pieces in fashion. To be honest, they don’t even look all that comfortable. They certainly don’t look like they’re going to be flattering. But this year, bike shorts are one of the trendiest pieces in fashion…which means it’s about time to figure out how to wear them. With any body type, it is possible to wear bike shorts and make them look great.
One of the scariest parts of wearing bike shorts is figuring out what to wear with bike shorts. If you’re having one of those days when you’re just not feeling very body brave but you want to wear your bike shorts, there’s an easy solution: a wrap dress. With a short wrap dress, your bike shorts will still be visible. You’ll get coverage around your bottom, hips and thighs, and you’ll get a nice line on top that emphasizes your bust. You could also slip on a belted blouse to dress up your bike shorts a bit. Adding a belt will emphasize your waist and still show off your curves.
Dressing for Your Body Type
Bike shorts come in all sizes, shapes and colors. With the right style tips, anyone can wear them well. If you love your legs and hips but hate your tummy, no problem. Pair any body hugging bike shorts with a loose-fitting sweatshirt.
Don’t have many curves? Women with thin, straight body types can add a little volume to their figures with a loose-fitting tunic top. The loose, breezy style adds some extra bulk to your frame. Bike shorts with two layers (the first is snug around your thigh and the second layer is looser) distracts the eye vs wearing a simple pair of tight bike shorts.
If you want to wear bike shorts but you truly don’t want to show off too much, go for the longer version of bike shorts or simply add a layer. A long blazer gives bike shorts a more sophisticated look, and it can provide you with enough coverage to keep you feeling comfortable while you wear this trend.
Bike Shorts for All Bodies
All body types can wear current trends, including bike shorts. Whether you’re a skinny minnie or a curvaceous girl, there are always ways to dress for the body you have in the trends you want to show off. Your curves are gorgeous. Your straight physique is gorgeous. And your sense of style is impeccable, so trust yourself and strut your stuff in all the latest fashions.
Confidence is the key to success — and that includes wearing what makes you happy. If you know you look great, everyone else will know it, too.
