Princess Diana has always been a fashion icon of mine. She had so many good “fashion moments”, and a favorite of mine is the iconic look consisting of a college sweatshirt, combined with some cycling shorts. My thoughts behind this look, is that I wanted to do a sporty outfit with a twist. Diana with a twist. To make the cycling shorts more wearable, I added a longer coat so they would only be showing on the front of the outfit. Some pearls and a chic hairband made the look a bit less sporty, but to not loose the athleisure vibe, I went with some sneakers with high white tennis socks.
Some tips if you want to try out the cycling shorts, but don’t know how to do it:
- Add a longer coat or top – I always do this when wearing cycling shorts, it makes the look more covered up which I personally feel more comfortable with.
- Go for color or pattern – If you feel like a black cycling shorts will look too much like gym wear, try one in a color or a patterned one. That way it will feel more like a “regular shorts”.
- Add non-sporty garments – If you are not a total fan of the sporty look, try wearing it with some heels and a longer blazer, and add some fun accessories like a chic bright colored bag.
