So we have reached that point again, the shops swarm in the spring/summer collection when I would say England doesn’t even experience a smidge of Spring until about April, so please keep selling thermals its cold outside!
However, across my winter collection travels, I have been seeing a slight, emergence of cycling shorts, the similar trickle effect I witnessed with playsuits three years ago, so I can sense this one being HUGE not right now, but next summer or even the summer after. Although the trend is really reminiscent to me of my pedal pushers wearing days *hangs my head in shame*.
This look is the type of look I think applies to the key phrase ‘wear what suits you, not wants in fashion’ but although most of the cycling shorts I am seeing resemble my old p.e lesson attire , American Apparel and co, I have seen some really cool fashion forward ones.
Motel was the same brand three years ago that earmarked the best playsuits and I think they have done the same with the cycling shorts. However as much as I love Motel, I kind of feel they eventually get lost amongst the Topshop’s of the world once the trend really goes mainstream but hey lets wait and see.

I will definitely be adding this pair to my collection to wear with a baggy tee and wedges for a little drink in a South Beach Bar (oh to dream). However most on the runway were worn under skirts, so I will be interested to see how us mere mortals transpire this trend. I know Alexa, Agness and Fearne will be rocking cycling shorts soon with their converses and flats and cannot wait how they add their sense of ‘Britishness’ to the trend.

I am won over by the ones above also, but what about you lot. Do you think some trends are best left on the runway or will you be coveting your luscious pins in these cycling shorts? Thoughts stylistas…xoxo
