Ways To Style Basic Black Bikers

Have you hopped on the biker short tend yet? I broke down a couple weeks ago and bought a pair after seeing countless bloggers modeling their biker shorts with tees and sweatshirts ... and I am so glad I did. Not only are they comfortable and perfect for summer (hello - short leggings!), but they can be super edgy and right on trend. On today's blog, I'm sharing a few easy ways you can rock a pair of biker shorts.

Pair with an oversized button up

This look turned out so classy chic. I threw on an oversized button down shirt. I kept the top half unbuttoned and put on a bralette underneath to show just a little lace. I tied a knot at my waist and put on a pair of cute sandals - and I have an outfit perfect for a lunch date, errands, or even brunch.

Wear with a jacket or blazer

For an edgy polished look, try pairing with a blazer or structured jacket. I put on a dressy utility coat, cinched my waist with a belt bag, and threw on a pair of dressy sandals. A good rule of thumb for this look: make sure your jacket hits below your crotch line, hitting about midway down your bikers.

Graphic Tee and a Denim Jacket

For an easy go-anywhere look, throw on an oversized graphic tee and denim jacket. I put on a pair of trendy sneakers to give this outfit a little more of an edgy look. Again - I like to keep my t-shirt hitting me below my crotch line, about midway down my biker shorts. If your t-shirt is on the shorter side, try knotting it or doing a half tuck. I would wear this outfit for so many things... a movie, to the park with my kids, the coffee shop with friends, or even for a Target run!

A Tank Top and Cardi

To style your bikers cute and comfy, throw on a tank top and oversized cardigan. I put on a white, but any color would work. My tank hits right at my waist, but still totally works with the biker shorts and longer cardi. I also put on a lacy bralette underneath my tank for a little contrast. I threw on a pair of tennies, but how cute would fuzzy slippers be with this outfit - perfect for working from home.


Finally, I threw on a cute sweatshirt because... east and effortless! Your sweatshirt could be your favorite college hoodie, athletic sweatshirt, or trendy hoodie. Whether it's oversized or cropped like mine, a sweatshirt with biker shorts screams spring time!

The only new item I purchased for all of these looks was my biker shorts. Everything else I had already hanging in my closet. Take a stroll through your closet and I bet you'll be surprised at just how many looks you'll come up with. Happy styling!
