Much like the nineties trends that came before (think scrunchies, ugly trainers and double denim), it was only time until cycling shorts had their high fashion makeover.
One pair that’s been making a regular appearance comes from iconic British brand, Burberry.
The classic black cycling shorts with a Burberry branded elastic band tap into our current penchant for both athleisure and logomania.
According to Glamour UK, the shorts in question have been so popular that fashion retailer Browns have sold out of the item multiple times over. Considering they cost a spenny £230 this is no mean feat. However, in an age where an £2 Ikea bag can be sold by Balenciaga for £1,672, nothing in the fashion world now seems impossible.
Committed Burberry fans can even purchase the matching sports bra (£150) for a workout look that’s sure to make a statement.
If not, take your cue from the street style set and wear the shorts with a mac, or for a trend-led take, style with an open plaid shirt or mac.
New stock is selling first so if you want to snap up this cult item you better move fast.
