If I’m not spray tanned, no one is seeing my legs! They never see the sun and pasty doesn’t even begin to describe them. When I do get spray tanned, however, I find that I have more confidence and I’ll wear things I wouldn’t have the guts to wear otherwise – like biker shorts. They’re still not my favorite separate, but after seeing cover after cover and runway show after runway show, I was curious to give the trend a whirl.
While they’re typically associated with sportswear, I think they work best for a casual, everyday outfit (think brunch). I don’t find them comfortable to workout in. As a RTW piece though, you benefit from opting for biker shorts (versus cropped pants) because they’re made from materials that actually “hold you in.” Alala makes a great pair that you can easily wear with a blazer and tee, a tee and chain belt, or a chunky sweater and not look like you’re about to partake in the Tour de France.
