Could the Track Short Trend Replace Bike Shorts?

Bring on the heat wave.

You may have turned up your nose at the bike short trend before realizing they are a summer appropriate version of your favourite leggings, so don’t let the track short trend pass you by. Light, airy and often made in a moisture-wicking fabric, these simple shorts will be your go-to all summer long.

In a style that’s acceptable for more than just working out, the light technical or performance fabric of these shorts makes them perfect for summer, whether you’re prone to jumping in the lake fully dressed or lounging around in the extreme heat. With elastic waistbands or drawstrings, the style is even more desirable as an addition to your WFH summer uniform. Look to designers like Wales Bonner for unexpected styling tricks that take track shorts out of gym territory by pairing them with a crisp white button-down shirt.
