Hello Fabulous Fashionist@s! It’s your classic cal gal here. As I’m writing this, it’s kind of annoying that I feel the need to start off by writing about the weather. But you know what isn’t so annoying? Well it sort of is, 80’s trends baby! If you don’t already know I am NOT a fan of the fashion from the 80’s decade. The 80’s are making their comeback thanks to the Kardashians. Kim K. is pictured stepping out in head to toe Yeezy apparel. I’m not here to say that Kim K’s fashion is lame or to hate on her, I’m a huge Kardashian fan(guilty!) and I admire their fashion sense. I’m just pointing out how trends make a comeback and in this case it just happens to be an 80’s trend.
Recently, I’ve seen Kim Kardashian sporting Yeezy biker shorts. While she styles the biker shorts so nicely, I will be the one to say that the Yeezy biker shorts aren’t revolutionary or a remotely new trend, sorry.
Let’s take a look at Kim K’s array of biker short outfits:
I don’t know if Kim and the Yeezy brand think they’re making groundbreaking fashion moves but they’re not and here’s why.
The exercise scene was HUGE in the 80’s, think bright colored leotards and legwarmers (cause you needed to keep your legs warm when working out). With this fad the biker shorts emerged onto the fashion scene and in the world of exercise. Take a look.
From famous Olympians…
…to your average teenage girl next door.
And hey look it’s Princess Di, sporting the biker shorts!
Notice how they sport the biker shorts with sneakers and socks that bunch at the ankle.
The shorts also lingered on into the 90’s as seen in clueless;
Heck, I even have photos of my mom sporting the biker shorts in the early 90’s. But these biker shorts could be the leggings of summer. Why? Because in the summer it gets really hot and sometimes it’s too hot to don your favorite pair of leggings. Thanks Kim K. for bringing back the biker shorts! (To be continued…)
