Portrait of Tammy Strobel

The late Princess Diana’s favourite off -duty staple in the ’80s, bike shorts have since transitioned from active wear to a must-have for any fashionista. While Prada sent down patterned ones paired with satin baby-doll tops, sheer socks and heels, a coordinated embellished sweater-Lycra set was seen at Chanel. Fendi went for a modern-utilitarian take with multi-pocketed tops belted with tool kit-like bum bags. Whether you decide to go for a more casual look with an oversized sweater, or glam it up with a tailored blazer and heels for formal events, bicycle shorts will take you from day to night with ease.
