There’s a saying from our childhood’s. Remember: If everyone jumped off a cliff, would you? This saying usually got dragged out in the “peer pressure” conversations.
And I guess that answer to that question depends. Are you leading the group? Is there a lake on the other side of the cliff? Is it hot outside? Are there situations where peer pressure is good? Is everybody’s doing it a reason NOT to do something?
By now, I’m sure you’ve seen some version of this outfit on some sort of social media. In case you haven’t, let me be the first to tell you: biker shorts are back. Yep. Everybody’s doing it. With heels, or Blazers, ankle booties, sweatshirts. As athletic wear, as going out wear.
So the question now becomes: if biker shorts are back, if everybody’s doing it, should you?
I have a space in my fashion heart full of love for athletic wear. Or wear that goes from the gym to events. Maybe it’s my love of working out, or maybe it’s my love of being fashionable, but I have a tendency to lean on the side of “everybody’s doing it” in this case.
Everybody doing it and workout leggings are a thing I do. The question remains, are biker shorts a thing you should do?
In all honesty? Everybody’s doing it, but if you’re thinking about outfits for your 9 to 5, this is probably not your new go-to. (Though you could try it with a blazer, for a casual Friday?) However, for weekend days, those days when you’re running from the gym to lunch, or when you can get away with a more casual look I love it. I love that these go from causal (Google Princess Dianna in biker shorts) to dressy (they look great with heels), from a casual top (this is a hoodie) to under a mini dress; biker shorts may be the fashion we didn’t know we needed.
If nothing else, they’ve come a long way from when I used to wear them with t-shirts in 3rd grade.
Everybody is doing it. Maybe you should too?
I’ve linked similar looks and pieces below. I’d love to know: are you rocking biker shorts?
