5 Cycling shorts to buy (until you decide if you’re going to wear them or not)
We are skeptical because this trend for us is SO-SO. But the cycling shorts made an incredible return to the sport-inspired fashion.
First, it was the cross body bags and the dad sneakers, then the baseball caps, now the cycling shorts … and it is so OFFICIAL that you remember the retro video tapes with mom’s sports exercises? Well, they come back to life in form of a big style trend for the summer. The models of the 1990s that were once defeated along with all the gear and Baby-Gs are back in the game and can definitely boast a label with a real trend.
You ask, “Why?” (and we are asking the same question). We will quote Paris Hilton, who said something right at the spot: The hottest trends in the fashion industry at the moment are the elements with a large dose of irony – we immediately think of the Ikea style bag of Balenciaga for the modest 2,000 pounds, or those leggings with a dollars and euro prints … Still, we know the industry loves to create “a lot of noise for nothing” around designs that trigger the initial reaction of: “What the hell ? ” and “Are you kidding?”
Kim Kardashian has already interpreted the cycling shorts in many of her outfits; and on the catwalk it all began last September, when Virgil’s Off-White decided to be inspired by a photograph of Princess Diana on the way to the gym, wearing them and shortly thereafter Naomi Campbell combined the white shorts with a tailored jacket, and the result, though a little strange, was flawless.
We abstain from the irony factor as well as the high prices and we offer few pieces of the most electrifying shorts of the season for you to shop.
