Leggings and bike shorts are no longer just for the gym but have now become a fashion statement. Bicycle bikers are undoubtedly the trend that marked the summer.

It looks like this summer they got major importance, because almost everyone is wearing them.
Celebrities and fashion influencers imposed this garment that was first taken to the catwalks and then on the streets. They have appropriated this trend and use bike shorts not only with sportswear but with casual and formal clothes.
