How To Hack The Biker Shorts Trend
Biker shorts first made their entrance to the fashion world in the ’90s; this time, they’re back for good. More than just a trend, biker shorts are a true activewear staple for any woman. Fitting for many active situations: getting coffee, doing a grocery run or simply heading to the gym.
Shorts of this length can also easily enhance your toned legs, letting you look and feel good after a sweat session. Take it from Kim Kardashian, Princess Diana and Sarah Jessica Parker! Read on to find out how to hack this trend with your Kydra gear.
Heat and humidity can be your worst enemies when you're trying to pull up a pair of leggings before a workout. The challenges we face: Do we really want to be out and about in leggings when it's humid? Will we be suffocated by our own leg sweat? How do you wear leggings when it feels like it's 36 degrees out?
Take a break from full coverage bottoms when you desire extra breathability, support and motivation before you head out with the all-new Kyro 7" Pocket Shorts on your next day out.
Find all sorts of cool with our signature Kyro fabric: A cooling sensation on your skin from Kyro's quick-cool technology, airy calves from the length of the shorts, and a really cool vibe check.
If you're a fan of our classic Kyro 4" Pocket Shorts and consider them to be a holy grail item in your activewear wardrobe, you'll want to give its counterpart a shot too.
Quickly go hands-free without a worry with the new pocket feature on the Kyro 7" Pocket Shorts. We stacked a smaller zip pocket on top of the right side pocket for you to fit smaller essentials on the go: cards, AirPods, TraceTogether token, or mask. Of course, its main pocket slot fits up to an iPhone 12 Pro Max.
Take to the streets with ease and peace of mind!
Confidently speed through that double-time sprint on your spin bike or scale the heights of Bukit Timah Hill without having to worry about the Kyro 7” Pocket Shorts riding up. In fact, these shorts were designed to hug and support the wearer’s thighs comfortably through motion.
Depending on your body proportions, biker shorts should generally sit between the mid and the third quarter of your thigh, thus reducing any leeway for fabric shifts mid-movement.
It’s a big misconception that petite women can’t pull off biker shorts. Rather than solely looking at height, first begin to understand your body ratio and determine if you have short, average or long legs. Most women have a long torso with shorter legs, or a short torso with long legs.
Long torso, shorter legs
Shorts are a challenging item for women with shorter legs to shop for. The length of each pair of shorts determines one’s perspective of where your legs ’start’ and ‘end’. A person with shorter legs can look much stubbier than they are if the length of shorts extends past one's ideal, flattering point.
Overcome this challenge by opting for a pair of shorts that have a high-waisted fit. Any piece of clothing that snugly wraps your body above your belly button can instantly elongate your legs and slim your frame.
Short torso, longer legs
Oh, the lucky ones. Biker shorts will look good on you, no matter how you style them.
Make sure you get the right fit around your waist, as biker shorts with too high a waistband can cut off your torso completely. Additionally, although a good fabric blend will stretch to hug your body nicely, consider that the pieces you purchase online can potentially look different on you due to differences in body proportions.
When those hips don’t lie
If you have a specific body type with wider hips or thicker thighs, biker shorts can make them more noticeable. Don’t be afraid to embrace how your body naturally looks.
Instead, opt for a darker and deeper colour, like Black or Dark Navy, and wear a longer top, like the Limitless Tank, to cover the widest part of your thighs if you're conscious. You don’t have to shy away from this style either!
Beyond your activewear wardrobe, it’s effortless to incorporate this particular style of bottoms into your every day one too. Not only do they provide you with enough coverage to get you around the island when you’re running errands, but they’re also easy to dress up or down.
Add a splash of colour with the Odessa Crop Tee in Royal Blue, or go neutral with White or Black. Have fun with throw-on styles and colours, and be creative!
Gear up in a matching set to go far and strong.
We recommend a full Space Grey or Dark Navy matching set with the Sierra Kyro Midline Bra or a timeless Black set with the Thea Kyro Rib Bra.
The possibilities are endless. Pick out a blazer or overshirt from your everyday closet and confidently rock your look. We absolutely love that you’ll still have the option to slot in a sweat activity in your day!
P.S. We recommend throwing this on top of your co-ord set for a seamless look.
