Like it or not, spandex bike shorts are back in a big way, and no longer just a closet staple for the Kardashian clan. Paired with an oversized sweater, boyfriend tee, or bare it all with a sports bra, we’ve seen countless celebrities and it girls alike rocking this look to social distance hike, walk the dog, or do at home yoga.
Although Kim K by no means started the trend, she definitely put them back on the map with her Yeezy campaign a few years back, and it has stuck around. An iconic 80’s staple, which stemmed from the likes of Madonna to the late Princess Di is now being labeled as the cool girls summer staple.
As someone who owns too many leggings, and finds every excuse to wear them out of the house, I’m happy there is a summer option getting so much attention. I’m excited to switch things up for summer without letting go of the quarantine comfort aspect.
The best part? Unless you’re going high class, the price point is ultra reasonable. It’s time to kick off summer with a new pair of bike shorts.
