Ahh, the early 2000s, a time for full denim outfits, cargo pants with more pockets than you can count and hoop earrings bigger than your dreams.

Biker Gang

Great news if you’re a cyclist- your cycle shorts can double as a fashion piece. From street style, celebs and the runways, biker shorts are the hottest trend for the warm weather. The late Princess Diana pioneered this trend back in the 90s and it’s found its way back into our closets. Simply pair them with a denim jacket for a laid back casual look or make it office chic with a blazer and classic button-down. If you’re not keen to try actual bike shorts, you could still be on trend with a cute pair of bermuda shorts.
