Ways To Wear Cycling Shorts


back to blog

Cycling shorts have taken over our wardrobes and we are so here for it! Gone are the days when they were only worn on bikes – cycling shorts have become an athleisure fashion staple that can be dressed up or down with ease.

Cycling shorts are the perfect item for transitional dressing – simply swap the t-shirts for knits and sweatshirts and you’re good to go. Plus, they even help prevent chafing – could they get any better?

Keep scrolling to see how we’re wearing our cycling shorts through the end of the summer and into the chillier months.

Ways to Wear Cycling Shorts

  • Pair with oversized t-shirts! Oversized tees and boyfriend shirts team perfectly with cycling shorts. The contrast of the oversized top over the fitted shorts creates a flattering outfit that sits in all the right places.
  • For a smart-casual vibe, opt for a blazer. If you’re looking for a new night-out outfit, blazers upgrade a basic look into something with a little more detail. Finish with mules or heels for a look you can wear with confidence.
  • Pair with sweatshirts and trainers for a casual off-duty look. Sweatshirts and cycling shorts make the perfect outfit to wear for staying super comfy on those chill days in the house.
  • Wear underneath dresses to help prevent chafing. If you want to maximise both style and comfort, cycling shorts help to fit and flatter your curves underneath your favourite dresses. You can even opt for a tummy-control pair for added support and smoothing.
  • Pop on with a knitted jumper to transition through the seasons! Now we’re coming to the end of summer, we’re adding knits back into our baskets. Paired with cycling shorts, it’s the perfect combo for those chillier days.

Oversized T-Shirts

Cycling shorts and oversized t-shirts are a match made in heaven! Whether you want something to throw on underneath a t-shirt dress, or you’re searching for some bottoms to pair with those tees that are a little too short to wear by themselves, cycling shorts are the ones to grab.

For an edgy off-duty look, we’ve teamed the two-stripe cycling shorts with our new york acid-wash tee. Finish with a pair of high-top trainers and you’ve got a comfy outfit that’s perfect for those days spent running errands.

If you don’t already have any brown clothing, this oversized tee is the perfect item to start off your obsession! The ultimate throw-on-and-go t-shirt, it features a flattering scoop neckline and 3/4 length sleeves. Partner with some white cycling shorts for extra comfort and coverage and style with some high-top trainers to complete the casual uniform.

Oversized Shirts

Transitioning through to the end of summer means light layers are your best friend, and oversized shirts are the ones to grab! The ultimate day-to-night attire for those times you want to go straight out from the office, just switch the trainers for some heels or mules and you’re all set.

Coated cycling shorts turn an everyday basic into something with a little more detail. We’ve styled them with our bright green boyfriend shirt and pink bag to add some bold brights, and finished with some black heels.
