Cycling shorts: your guide to this year’s hottest new trend

We know what you’re thinking - cycling shorts? Really? Believe it or not, cycling shorts have become one of the hottest fashion trends of the moment. From the likes of Kim Kardashian to Australian-bae Tammy Hembrow, butts around the world are being defined through microscopic layers of spandex. Whether you’ve got the junk in your trunk or not, UNiDAYS are here to help you nail cycling shorts without looking like Bradley Wiggins straight off the velodrome.

1. Channel your inner Sporty Spice

It’s the 90s trend that’s here to stay - combine a sporty stripe with simple cycling shorts and you may just be the trendiest kid on the block.

Or pair plain cycling shorts with a simple crop for a casual, sporty look.

2. Baggy is best

If skin-tight-to-the-point-of-nudity isn’t your look, offset with an oversized tee or jumper for a laid-back vibe.
