Bike Shorts, Belt Bags and Bucket Hats: My New Favorite Outfit

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Know what’s better than one spring trend? THREE of them. And if those three happen to harken back to the days of Madonna, Blossom, and LL Cool J well. ‘Nuff said. And since it’s rare to find an outfit combination that so seamlessly combines practicality, versatility AND style…obviously, I had to share.  This is truly the type of outfit that could go from school pick-up (that bucket hat will hide all manner of bedhead), to working out (oh hey, bike shorts) to the club (belt bags are totally legit).

I like to add a blazer when it’s cold. It really brings the look together.

How to be on-trend: grab 3 at a time. We're going bucket hats, bike shorts & belt bags this spring — plus heels. See how we do, but you do you. Mwah.

Now if you don’t actually have bike shorts, this is not necessarily a problem. You simply grab a pair of leggings and fold the lower fabric up over your knees. And yes — it does cut off your circulation when you do this, but it’s all about sustainability, you guys. Reuse. Think of Earth. Be more biodegradable.

It’s so freeing, wearing spandex instead of denim. Because sometimes you need to stretch.

Breathe in, you guys. Like…really BREATHE. Harness your joy to access mindfulness. Meditate on that.

  1. Lame to make a joke about sustainability. But you do call yourself the shopping enabler. I guess it’s hard to make money when your fanbase acts responsibly.

  2. Crysta Wilson on

    What I really want to know is the break down on outfit purchases for no one who gets what she’s doing🤦🏻‍♀️

  3. Honestly, this is a trend that should never have seen the light of day. Bike shorts are not flattering on anyone, even folks who wear them when biking. Its not even a good joke!

  4. This is really similar to an outfit I saw in a Nordstrom window last month. That outfit didn’t have heels but huge white scrunchy socks (push-down socks, according to Claudia Kishi) and white sneakers.

  5. hmmm, I hope this does not become fashionable but last year’s 4/1 was dad sneakers and I’m seeing the trend happening this year with Balenciaga and Gucci and Fila sneakers!

  6. Got me!! I had to come read the comments because the rolled up leggings, bucket hat??? 😂🤣 I mean I know the heels and bicycle shorts are trending and I’m sure Shana could pull off a bucket hat but all this all at once…….and the commentary, love everything about this post!!!

  7. For a split second I was like… wow. I know bike shorts are a thing again but really? Oh right. April 1. You even did the blogger squat (jeez, I remember when that was a thing…).

  8. HA! I was so confused by this post, then I just saw Jennifer Gardner on Instagram who posted a book release yesterday that was an April Fool’s joke. Then this all made sense!!! Well done!!!!

  9. This would be funny if any of the other TME writers were wearing it, because then you’d be sure it was just a joke. But with Shana, you never know…

  10. OMG I seriously thought for a moment TME had jumped the shark. I’m reading on April 3, in my defense. You are hilarious, and I am just imagining shooting this look in public.😂
