Bike shorts are back in, and they’re everywhere. They’re one of the best year-round staples that you should definitely have in your wardrobe. You can layer them under dresses, ripped jean shorts and skirts in the colder months, while in the warmer months, they look great on their own when styled in the right way. Here are the best bike short outfits of 2022.

As confusing as the bike short trend may seem confusing to some, it’s an edgy power move that everyone needs in their wardrobe. Underneath the blazer, wear a cropped tank or pop-of-color bralette.
