the best bike shorts for a summer on-the-go

Whether you have your nose buried in your Instagram feed or your attention focused on real life, you may have noticed that bike shorts are back in a very big way. Worn by influencers and everyday gals alike, the mid-thigh spandex shorts are changing the way we look at warm-weather style, proving that you can wear activewear without looking like you’re about to run a marathon. You can style them monochromatically à laKim and Khloe Kardashian, or with your favorite oversized vintage band tee like influencer and owner of American Honey Vintage, Nicole Alyse. Whichever you choose, one thing’s for sure: You’re about to be comfy AF.

To help you score the cozy chic fit for yourself, we’ve rounded up 10 of our favorite bike shorts for a summer on-the-go. Check them out below.

If you want to take your ‘80s-meets-modern day lewk to the next level, take another style tip from the Kardashians and pair your pick with a head full of crease-free crimped waves. To get the look, make sure you stock your beauty arsenal with amika’s High Tide Deep Waver ($120). The newly-launched hot tool will quickly become a summer staple once you realize how easy it is to use. Simply apply a heat protectant to your strands — like amika Blockade ($25) — and crimp your way to flawless, frizz-free beach waves in just minutes.

Happy styling!
