How To Give Biker Shorts A Classy Touch

The year was 1983, throngs of people were donning lycra and spandex outside of the gym, complete with bags that hung around their waists and oversized sweatshirts. Fast forward nearly 35 years and I find myself checking the calendar to be sure that it does indeed read 2018. They say that history always repeats itself and when it comes to fashion, they certainly right. Which is why we’re seeing belt bags and biker shorts on the scene once again. I decided to stop bucking change and get with the program, today’s post is all about me taking on the biker short trend.

Hautemommie stuns in the latest fashion trend - biker shorts. Check out the post!

Truth be told watching Kim Kardashian and every other Fashion Nova sweetheart walk around with a camel toe has not been exactly the push I needed to get with spandex as pant option, but after seeing one of my favorite bloggers do the look some justice, I thought – now THAT is chic. Perhaps it was the fact that the look didn’t seem over styled or trying to hard. Whatever it was it did get me to participate, and I’m glad I did. Now I see why the 80s was full of stretchy bottoms and huge t-shirts. It’s comfortable and fabulously stylish when done right.

Which is why I paired my simple black shorts with an oversized blazer that I caught on sale a couple summers ago at Zara during a Chicago jaunt. The perfect mustard color, it gives me an autumnal feeling and doesn’t smother me. I may just be seen in spandex and blazers moving forward so don’t be shocked, you’ve been warned. Be mindful though that all biker shorts are not created equal. While you can find cheap pairs for $10 or less you can be sure that the stretch won’t be as taunt and may also be see through. And that’s not a good look girl, remember classy is the goal.

While I was a bit leery of the biker short trend making its comeback at first, I guess I can now say that I’m on board. My look though? Sweatshirts, blazers and tight shorts a la Princess Di is more my speed. Biker gone classy, I like it.
