We asked YOU what you thought of the bike short. 67% of you on Instagram said you were on the fence about it! So our stylist, Erin, and some of our Aerie fam from the around the office came together to show you how to style the bike short three ways. Like some of you, these ladies were unsure about how to wear the bike short. Read on to see how Erin changed their minds!
One of our fave combos this season? Bike shorts + bright shoes!
Haleigh, Aerie Social Media Assistant, can’t ride a bike and was worried she couldn’t rock a bike short either. Erin put her in an anything-but-basic Chill High Waisted Bike Short and paired it with an off-the-shoulder Woven Tube Top. She accessorized with a cross-body bag, sunglasses and sandals for a pop of color. No bike needed!
Data Scientist, Olive, thought bike shorts were too casual. Erin gave her colorful bike shorts and kept them under wraps in this dressed up style. She paired these bike shorts with our fave Wrap Dress, bright sneakers and a cute graphic baseball cap. Fun AND functional!
Taylor, Email & Mobile Marketing Coordinator, didn’t think she had the right body type for bike shorts. Erin proved her wrong! She paired these white bike shorts with a Beach Fleece for breezy summer days. Pink sneakers and sunglasses make this look right for ANY body type.
