Biker shorts can be dressed up or down, making them one of the most versatile pieces in any wardrobe. They also take up minimal space in a suitcase making them a great item to take on a variety of trips. We’ve curated eight go-to looks that are easy to recreate for any occasion — whether you like a casual vibe or are hitting the town for a night out, we know you’re going to slay one of these biker shorts outfit ideas.
How to Style Biker Shorts
1. Button Down and Biker Shorts
Biker shorts and a white button down is a classic combo ideal to wear on a sunny day to run errands or grab coffee with your friends. Aya styled her Thigh Society shorts with a black crop top and left her button down open for a glimpse of midriff. Our Original shorts are our most opaque option and make the perfect go-to base layer for any biker shorts outfit this spring and summer.
2. Biker Shorts and Tall Boots
@torii.block I think this may be one of my favorite hacks of all time 🙌🏼 #curvefashion #plussizefashion #plussizestreetstyle #widecalfboots #widecalfoverthekneeboots #widecalfkneehighboots #curvytiktok #plussizebikershorts #baggytshirt #truckerhatstyle #MadeWithKeurigContest #EndlessJourney ♬ Strut - Kyle Walker
Biker shorts are often paired with sneakers and sandals, but they also look amazing worn with on-trend tall boots. Tori paired black biker shorts with a black T-shirt, which she made fitted with an amazing shoestring hack. She finishes the look with knee high boots and a cap. Rock this outfit with a black trench or oversized moto jacket for added warmth on those cool spring days or summer evenings.
3. Neon Green
Shorts don't always need to be black, so why not try a pop of neon? We absolutely love this colorful, summery look — a pair of bright green shorts with a white top and neon sunglasses. Try this look out for your next festival or picnic with your friends. An added benefit of biker shorts is that you can comfortably sit down anywhere without having to worry about accidentally flashing people.
4. Bralette and Bike Shorts
Biker shorts can be sexy — especially if you wear them with a small tube top or bralette under a blazer. The all-black color combo also makes it more fashion-forward, a minimalist yet double-take-worthy look. Wear this for a night out on the town. When dinner inevitably turns into a night of dancing, you’ll be prepared in your sneakers.
5. Sweatshirt and Bucket Hat
Biker shorts have been popular for decades (remember Princess Diana’s iconic sweatshirt and biker short combo?). For the ultimate 90s vibe, pair your shorts with a bucket hat, and layer a T-shirt over a sweatshirt for an effortlessly cool layered look.
6. Baby Blue Bike Shorts
In a sea of black biker shorts outfits, this colorful blue look is cute and unexpected. Her periwinkle sweater paired with baby blue shorts screams spring. It’s the perfect outfit for those in-between months. And if you love color, our Cooling shorts come in an array of pastels, like lilac and blush.
7. Denim and Shorts
This look merges two closet staples for a classic combo of biker shorts and denim. To recreate the look, pair your biker shorts with an oversized denim shirt, some white sneakers and a cool bag, like this Telfar one. Wear this to go shopping or walking in the park on a sunny day, but don’t forget your sunnies.
8. Red and Blue
We love how this outfit showcases a variety of unexpected lengths and colors for visual interest — a tiny top, biker shorts, a long cardigan and a small sports-bra style top. The baby blue and red color combo contrast each other in an eye-catching way. This is a great vacation ensemble for exploring a seaside town on your way to lunch, or wear this on your way to morning yoga — the shorts and bra combo are perfect for exercising.
