Reading this post, you might have some kind of "childhood-flash-back". Well, I did when I realised that cycle shorts are having a come-back this summer. I always used to wear black ones with short bright dresses when I was a little girl. The designer's interpretation doesn't have anything in common with this interpretation of the cycle shorts tough. From Prada to Wang over DKNY - all of them go for a very cool look which I totally adored on the runway but what about their everyday capability? Yes or no? I'm not sure yet but I'm definately gonna try it out. Just ordered two black pairs from H&M. I'll style them with dotted tights (as seen on Alexa) and a basic white shirt.

What about you: Are you going with the cycle shorts or filing them into the "90s nightmares"- dossier?

Haven't decided yet! It seems like the type of thing that can look super well or a huge disaster!

Gosh, they go into the 90s disaster category for me. Not a big cycling shorts fan.

i've always disliked cycling shorts tbh, and never thought they looked good, but after looking at these pictures... i believe it depends on how you wear them.

nice images though :) fab! x x x

I am loving your blog!! I think I am going to let this trend pass me by. I am short, so I doubt they would look good on me anyways.

Only if they are sheer or lacy. The solid opaque shorts are too 90's for me.

Miss Galino said...

love it. and by "it" i mean your blog. adding to favourites :) i need someone who reviews fashion shows for me :)

donna AND navaz said...

Not for me, I fear they only suit the thin of thigh and there aren't many of those people around... N

Brandy Shaloo said...

90's nightmare!!

Emma said...

Definitely depends on the styling. Can either be great or a huge disaster. There's no in between 'she looks alright' with them!

Martinacore said...

I don't like cycle shorts, 'cause they are perfect only on a very thin body. On me, they are terrible.
So,I prefer classic shorts.

follow,

This is definitely a hot summer trend. Fashion recycles and this is definitely chic. I love the leather ones the most, personally. I think this trend can go so many ways and it's definitely H.O.T! xx

Karoline said...

Rose said...

im filing them under nightmare but only as i dont think i could pull them off.
i think theyll be short lived but good on you for giving it a go!

le pearl said...

Hmmmm I have always looked terrible in them, they look so good on everyone else though :(

chermaine said...

Looks good on the models but I can't imagine myself wearing them. Just not my cup of tea! (:

Efrutik said...

So glad you wrote this post! I'm definitely wearing them already (well one pair that I have so far). I'm going to return a pair I got from H&M unfortunately b/c they are too long. I think the best length for this style is to have one's shorter than the knee length. It spices things up that way. Enjoy wearing them, I'm definitely enjoying mine right now :)

DonnaRomina said...

Hey:)
dankeschön erstmal!!
Echt??Schade :( Hast du dort auch so wenig gekannt wie ich?
Ich konnte leider nur für einen Tag da bleiben, weil ich am nächsten Tag Schule hatte... :s
Hast einen schönen Blog :)

DonnaRomina said...

hey :)
Ja genau, habe genau so gedacht...
Ein paar kamen mir auch seehr sehr arrogant vor. Ich habe versucht, mit manchen zu reden, aber irgendwie hatten die garnicht so wirklich interesse dran o.o
Habe mir dann halt nur noch die shows angeschaut und nich nach hause gefahren.

Echt? Immerhin... Ich hätte auch gerne so eine entschuldigung von den Lehrern bekommen :(

Another critical detail to consider would be the shipping and delivery details about the website. Figure out whether they deliver only within the country or should they ship to global addresses, depending on where you might be. Also make Chinese clothing style sure that their delivery price is affordable adequate, or else you are going to be spending above everything you paid for Computer Repair Tracking Software that garments that you requested. Appear in the supply period and exactly how lengthy can you hope them to provide your merchandise.
