The 16 Best Bike Shorts to Wear All Summer Long

Once upon a time (aka summer 2019), you’d wear them to the gym or brunch, but bike shorts have proven ideal for all sorts of at-home activities, from watching the entire season of Big Flower Fight in one sitting to creating your very own tie-dye masterpiece. No longer made of 100% uncomfortable spandex, they’re a closet workhorse that can look just as good with an oversized hoodie as a blazer and cute sandals.

As we begin to reenter society, the versatile basic is one of the few quarantine mainstays we plan to wear well into the future. So whether you want a pair to chill in at home, or have plans to go roller skating every Summer Friday, we combed the Internet to bring you all the best bike shorts you can buy right now. Check them out below.

Tried-and-true black

Black bike shorts will stand the test of time—and you can get a pair for cheap (hi, Amazon). If you want something you can dress up, à la Gigi Hadid, try experimenting with materials like a superfine ribbed knit or lustrous black.a woman wearing a pink shirt
