We never thought we would see the cycle short trend back so soon. However, when Kim Kardashian was seen sporting a pair of Yeezy bike shorts the trend took off. You might remember this trend from the 80s and you may even recognise these particular pants as a favourite of Princess Diana herself.

In case you're unfamiliar with this blast from the past, cycle shorts are the tight shorts that are commonly made of stretchy material that stop just above the knee. The current trend shows shorts that are high-waisted and finish three-quarters of the way down your thigh.

Bike shorts come in a range of colours, patterns and materials. They're currently some of the hottest items at top online and in-store retailers, not to mention fashion bloggers all over the Internet who are wearing this trend.

The best part? These comfy and stretchy shorts are now suitable and acceptable for every occasion, not just working out. You can pair them with a blazer or a set of heels and presto, you've got yourself a pretty snazzy outfit. That's why it comes as no surprise that these are one of the hottest summer trends this season.
