Fashion fans take note – bike shorts are making a comeback. Love them or loathe them, these skin-tight shorts look set to be one of the key womenswear pieces of 2019.
After being banished for several decades, this iconic 1980s garment looks set to land at all the major ready-to-wear brands from early next year, before becoming the star of the summer, both at the beach and about town.
Still don’t believe us? Here’s a look at some of the evidence.
FASHION ICONS ARE ALREADY WEARING THEM
If you’re looking for someone to blame for the bike shorts comeback, then Kim Kardashian is a good place to start. The star was snapped wearing cycling shorts all the way back in the first half of 2018 and, since then, she has rocked this sporty style on various occasions, whether with sneakers, heels or even thigh boots.
A host of other celebrities quickly hopped on the trend, such as Kylie Jenner, Bella Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski and Chiara Ferragni. And with their millions of social media followers, these are influential people when it comes to style. Expect to see bike shorts make further headway in the fashion scene from early next year.
