TREND REPORT: BIKE SHORTS
“OMG cycle shorts? Seriously? No, I would never ever wear them!” Those must have been my words when I first saw a picture of one of the Kardashians wearing cycle shorts this summer. Well – I guess you can see how my promise went. 😉 So here I am, dressed in cycle shorts. Which proofs again: Never say never. Especially not, if you’re a blogger and into fashion. *lol
But even with cycle shorts I guess it’s the same as with every trend: just adapt it and stay true to your own style and everything will work out in the end. So I think that I do can make a promise (didn’t learn that much about promises huh): that I would never wear cycle shorts with a cropped top or bustier as the Kardashians would do. Instead, I prefer to style the cycling shorts with an oversized shirt and classy jacket. So what do you think of me adapting the cycle shorts trend and this combo?

STYLE GUIDE: BIKE SHORTS
So thanks to Instagram for inspiring me once again and giving me so many new ideas how to style cycle shorts. It started with the laidback styling from Pernille Teisbaek. Apart from that, I’m loving the combinations with blouses, shirts and blazers as you might see from the inspo below. Like this, you will never take the risk of looking like going to the gym. 😉 And last but not least, we can also take the cycle shorts with us into fall. By combining an Oversize Sweatshirt or some heavy knit and sneakers or boots, you won’t freeze on some warm fall days and still look fashionable.
