Cycling Shorts: Yay Or Nay?

Thought fash­ion was done with the whole ath­leisure thing? Not by a long shoté

Look (UK) - - CONTENTS -

Track­suits are one thing, hood­ies an­other, but the lat­est sports luxe ob­ses­sion is in a league of its own. Maybe it’s the Laura Trott fever that’s gripped the na­tion, or Kim K’s pen­chant for them – blame it on who you will, but cycling shorts are trend­ing right now and we’re not sure how we feel about it.

Of course, there’s the ob­vi­ous ad­van­tage of wear­ing them un­der­neath fly­away frocks (if Mar­i­lyn Mon­roe had thrown on a pair be­neath that white dress of hers, it would’ve saved her a lot of drama). That’s not how the fash pack’s do­ing things, though. In­stead of hid­ing them un­der lay­ers of chif­fon when gale force winds are fore­cast, they’re rock­ing theirs in full view of street style pho­togs.

So are cycling shorts a wardrobe friend or foe? Our most fear­less staffers took them out for a spin (see what we did there?) but the jury’s out. Comfy? It’s a given, but 64 per cent of you thought the trend was a to­tal no-go. How­ever, we found out that with clever lay­er­ing, they can work for the of­fice as well as when you’re off-clock. Just think, it’ll also cut your get­tin­gready time post-gym­sesh by half.

Try the look for your­selves and let us know how you get on. Who knew Kimmy was such a wardrobe revo­lu­tion­ary?
