Are they back?
They always make me think of Mr Motivator. At my old school popping on one of his work out VHS's counted as sufficient physical education for fourteen yearolds girls. Brilliant!
I think I may have to throw a Mr Motivator themed party soon!
I was in topshop in Kensington a few weeks back and some girls were slaggggin off cycling shorts and I was like "woaaaah chill out, they're not that terrible you are probably just thinking of when you had to do gymnastics at school and you couldn't climb the rope and they're probably just bringing back bad memories". Hence, I decided to try a few cycling shorts look. If you know me, I am quite a schizophrenic dresser, so here goes .....
cycling shorts - american apparel
tee - parents room
jacket - river island
bag - beyond retro
brogues - topshop
This is what I wish I could wear to buy milk from the newsagent, but it's more of a lazy night out thing. Made the mistake of wearing these shorts to a party within the first few weeks of starting sixth form and was known for a while as "silverhotpant girl" luckily that has shaken off.
cycling shorts - topshop
top - topshop
heels - new look
This is a less sporty cycling short. More of a "day trip out of london" look.
cycling shorts + hoody - american apparel
tee - nike
jacket - burberrys
headscarf - viv westwood
trainers - nikexliberty
This look is ridiculous. But it is a laugh. An exemplar case of how "sportswear" can be taken to the polar opposite of athletic activity!
cycling short unitard - american apparel
jacket - h+m
sandals - office
bag - lulu guinness
This isn't exactly cycling shorts but I guess they're in the same family. The tie die and the tightness is definitely a good thing, once I wore this to a party and some kid I dislike was wearing a blue+purple tie die fortylicks tee and it was embarrassing that I was matching him.
Yes or no to the cycling short???
Should the short be limited strictly to bicycles?
What's your fave look?
