Fashion trends come and go, but some are meant to stay forever. And right now, biker shorts are still having a moment. From off-duty street style to red carpets to the gym, biker shorts are a wardrobe staple no matter the occasion.
Dressed up or dressed down, the simplicity of these shorts allow for major creativity. Style them with a blazer and heels a lá Kourtney Kardashian, make your look monochromatic like Halle Berry or put a casual spin on them with sneakers and a tee courtesy of Sofia Richie. You can even mix-and-match with a sweater and pumps like I wore here for last year’s U.S. Open. The possibilities are endless. And if you’re not someone who sees themselves wearing biker shorts as a fashion statement, many women love wearing a pair under a dress or skirt to keep their thighs from chafing.
With thousands of styles from different brands, it can be overwhelming finding the perfect pair of biker shorts. But with over 40,000 positive customer reviews, these $19 biker shorts by Baleaf are constantly ranked No.1 on Amazon’s best seller’s list.
Shop: Baleaf High-Waist Exercise Shorts, $19.99
Crafted from super-soft, moisture-wicking, breathable and stretchy fabric, these high-waist biker shorts feature a wide waistband — and include a side pocket. Sizes start from an XS and go to a 5XL. The best part? You can choose from over 30 different colors including black, white, red, green and blue.
One Amazon shopper, who described herself as a “ultramarathoner,” wrote, “Several of my runner friends were interested in them for themselves. I immediately bought another pair in navy. I imagine I’ll purchase a few more pairs as I train for my marathon.”
The reviewer says she wore the shorts “all summer,” and they “have held up every step of the way.”
Most people pointed out the pocket as their favorite part of the design. Some said they use it to store their phones, while some say it’s the perfect place for a tennis ball.
“I can’t believe how many manufacturers are ignoring active women who need a spot for their phones! I was so happy to discover Baleaf. The pocket fit my iPhone 7 in its case, and held it firmly against my upper outer thigh so it wasn’t bouncing around,”one five-star review wrote.
The biggest caveat comes from the disappointment of the outcome of throwing these shorts in the dryer. Many of the Amazon reviews warn to make sure to let them hang dry due to shrinking and fabric pilling.
