Here’s Why Biker Shorts Are More Than Just a Trend

August 29, 2018 - 22 Comments

Target Kid’s Leggings Cut into Biker Shorts (Revolve biker shorts here, affordable version here) / Levi’s White Button Down (sold out, but similar here and affordable version here) / Louis Vuitton Sneakers (similar, affordable version here) / Beck Jewels Pearl Earrings (similar here, and affordable version here) / Chloe Femininities Necklace (sold out, but similar abstract necklace here) / Louis Vuitton Cannes Bag (sold out, but similar here and here, and affordable version here) / Jimmy Choo Cat Eye Sunglasses (similar Quay sunglasses available here, and you can use code AIMEE20 for 20% off!)Biker shorts are here to stay! I am all about this trend right now, because biker shorts are so comfy and practical to wear. The ones I am wearing were actually Target kid’s leggings, and I cut them to make my own biker shorts. If you don’t want to make your own, Revolve makes a great pair of biker shorts (available here, and affordable version here) that are ready to go!Streetwear and athleisure have created controversy in the fashion industry because many people believe that these trends are disrupting the traditional luxury fashion business. Personally, I believe that the acceptance of streetwear, and the merging of streetwear and high fashion, marks an important shift. Fashion is working on becoming more inclusive, more diverse, and less elitist. Visionaries like Virgil Abloh (the artistic director of Louis Vuitton) and Alessandro Michele (the creative director of Gucci) have been vital in making streetwear a part of high fashion, and also in making luxury fashion more inclusive on all fronts. To me, biker shorts are more than just a trend. They are a symbol of the fashion industry moving forward.I paired my outfit with my Louis Vuitton sneakers (sold out, but similar, affordable version here) to play up the edginess of the biker shorts. Dad sneakers are such a huge trend, and just like biker shorts, they are incredibly comfortable!

To make the outfit feel pulled together (but still super comfy!) I tied a Levi’s white button down (sold out, but similar here, and affordable version here) over the shorts. I added my Chloe femininities necklace (sold out, but similar, abstract necklace here), and my Beck Jewels pearl earrings (similar here, and affordable version here). I’m all about sculptural and asymmetrical jewelry pieces. The right jewelry can make even the most casual look feel fashion-forward.Lastly, I carried my Louis Vuitton Cannes bag (sold out, but similar here and here, and affordable version here) to give the outfit a final touch of sophistication. Then, I finished the outfit off with my Jimmy Choo cat eye sunglasses (similar Quay sunglasses available here, and you can use code AIMEE20 for 20% off!).
