Bike Shorts

The newest fashion trend that is all the rage on websites like GymShark, LuluLemon, and Aerie are being worn by big names like Kendall Jenner, Kim Kardashian, and Sophie Turner. Biker Shorts have been pegged as one of Spring 2020’s biggest trends and have taken workout brands by storm. They have even been selling out almost instantaneously! What’s better than being able to combine the flexibility and comfort of wearing leggings while also keeping cool in the warmer weather. One of the big reasons these shorts have made huge waves in the fashion industry is because of how versatile they really are. Influencers, celebrities, and even workout fanatics have been seen wearing them with anything from a blazer to a matching sports bra. Not only are biker shorts durable and comfortable but they are also reasonably priced making them all the more fashion-forward. Oftentimes we see trends that can cost a customer hundreds of dollars, but biker shorts are the perfect product to look stylish but not break the bank. In this article, I will share some of the places you are able to purchase biker shorts and what customers thought about them! 

  1. GymShark

As previously mentioned, GymShark has been bombarded with orders and is sold out of most sizes for each style of biker shorts. One pair that I liked online was the Energy+Seamless Shorts listed for 45 USD. As of right now, they are pretty stocked up on most sizes which I took advantage of seeing as they are sold out on a lot of websites. My overall thoughts for the biker shorts were that they were averagely priced, a great material, super stretchy, but unfortunately constantly were riding up making them hard for everyday use. As someone who is on the go all day, every day, I need a material that will stay in place and be comfortable for all-day wear. Although I love this brand and the look and feel were fantastic, I was not a fan of their inability to stay in place on my legs. 

2. LuluLemon

LuluLemon is an amazing workout brand with hundreds of products and styles that appeal to almost anyone looking for fitness apparel. Their biker shorts have been out of stock for quite some time due to their popularity. I visited one of the LuluLemon locations a few months ago hoping to purchase a pair of their biker shorts but they were very limited in stock. I used my regular leggings size to try on the shorts and they did not fit very well. Instead of fitting snug and comfortably to my leg, they squeezed my thigh making it difficult to move around. I tried the 10” pair which were a little too long for my liking and in the “Fast and Free” style which is why they were a little snugger. I’ve found the Align style leggings allow for a lot more movement when working out or on the go so when they are back in stock, I recommend giving the Align Biker Shorts a try! They are on the more expensive side at around 68 USD but LuluLemon is a great brand with amazing products! 

3. Aerie 

Aerie has just released an online exclusive pair of biker shorts for an amazing price! For just around 25 USD, you can keep up with the newest fashion-forward trend while shopping from a brand you trust. Already, they have received amazing reviews about their look and feel. Some mentioned in the reviews that you should size up but that was the only negative feedback I saw! For now, they just come in a few colors and styles but I’m sure there are more to come. They are also praised for their fit on bigger women as many other workout brands tend to run very small. I have just ordered two pairs for myself and so should you!

    4 Latina Fashion Designers Who Are Changing the Industry with Culture

    It’s no secret that the fashion industry has always grappled with the issue of representation, and Latino representation is no exception. The glossy catwalks of the 80s and 90s were nearly completely dominated by the (white), nepotistic European fashion houses of the day with little room for Latino designers to showcase their talents, let alone share their culture with the world; for the few that did exist–Carolina Herrera and Isabel Toledo come to mind–their Latino identities were noticeably secondary to their work. But now it’s 2023, and though the industry is not without faults, Latino/a fashion enthusiasts can now see their cultures and experiences reflected in fashion at all levels. While plenty of Latino men have made their way in the fashion world, I’d like to specifically focus on the women–who have been historically vastly overlooked–who are changing the game and pushing the boundaries of design by bringing Latin America to high fashion.

    Why it is Too Soon For These 3 Fashion Trends

    One thing I look forward to at the start of every year is seeing what’s trending in the fashion world. It can be helpful to scope out trends to see what may or may not be a worthy investment for the coming year. With that being said, there are often trends that go out of style quicker than they come into style. Here are three trends that I personally won’t be investing in.

The jury trial started on Tuesday at the Southern District Court in Manhattan. It comes after Adidas filed a lawsuit in 2021, claiming that athletic wear with Thom Browne’s striped patterns “imitates” its long-standing branding.
