Summer is over. Am I having a hard time with it? Maybe. Does that mean I’m not excited for fall? TBD.
Honestly, fall fashion is *the* ultimate bonus to look forward to. Sure, the season brings with endless chatter about all things pumpkin spice for three months straight, but this doesn’t mean it comes with 0 perks. At the same time, my heart is still getting over the breakup with summer. Hence, I have one final summer outfit I need to discuss with you…specifically entailing these biker shorts.
You may have seen this style of short worn by a Kardashian or two, but who I’ve taken the most inspiration from—who you may know because of her killer body, her cutest dog, Colombo, or her epic clothing line, Inamorata Woman—is Emily Ratajkowski. Her brand first launched exclusively as a swimwear line, but evolved to have an assortment of swim, lingerie, and the ultimate basics. This includes her flattering biker short.
These shorts were my go-to this summer. Even though early-adopters re-introduced the trend in Spring 2018, these shorts haven’t made their final stop. The classic style gives a different, edgier look and are more versatile than denim shorts will ever be. Pair it with an oversized tee, blazer, or sexy top and it looks just as good either way. If you need further inspiration for casual ootds, look no further than Princess Diana’s street style in the ’90s.
For during the day, I love styling these shorts with a sneaker or my Dr. Martens—both give the coolest, casual look. For a night-out style option, opt for a kitten heel.
Expect the biker short trend to be around for another S/S season seen in matching sets and bright colorways.
