STYLE HACK: BORN TO RIDE
Take a style cue from our Fashion Writer on rocking biker shorts in three different ways!
1. Cool athleisure
Exude cool-girl vibes by layering a mid-length blazer over an oversized hoodie and leave the hood out to avoid bulkiness at the back. We love how the pop of colour adds a bright spark to this ensemble. Lastly, put on a pair of buckled ankle boots to give your shorts and blazer some edge!

2. Boho chic
Steal your man’s button-up for a change and make it your own. For a relaxed look, half-tuck the shirt into your shorts. Match it with a headband for extra details if you’re not into styling your hair. Finish it with a belt bag and chunky sneakers for comfort and wear your outfit on a night out!

3. Glam business
Go for printed tights if you’re ready for a bit of pattern play. Keeping your top as plain as possible is the best way to avoid clashing between prints. It’s also a great trick if you’ve picked out a bold colour as your focus piece for contrast. Strap an animalprint belt bag over the outfit and wear your favourite pair of black boots to exude an oomph of street glam instantly!
