Love it or hate it, Kim Kardashian is a powerful player when it comes to starting a trend. She's already made wearing her shapewear as outerwear seem chic, so, for her next trick, she's intent on making bike shorts happen. Actual bike? Unnecessary.
This week, Kim showed us an example of how to rock the athletic garment while out in NYC. Kim paired hers with a corset top, mink shower slides and some kind of kimono robe. Note: advanced level of styling. Don't try this at home:
Back in spring, Kim showed off her post-baby bod-in-progress in a pair of high-waisted compression shorts paired with a lacy white top and a severely studded leather jacket.
Kim even has her mini-mi, North West in on the trend:
Never one to miss an opportunity to monetize, Kim created her own line of bike shorts bearing some of her most popular Kimojis:
You, too, can be a bike shorts-wearing Turbo Thot or Savage, for just $45! Sadly, these shorts were only on sale on Kim's website for a short time, but if enough people tweet at her, surely she'll bring them back:
So, could you get down with this unusual trend, or nah?
