They had the right idea back in the 50's but coming into the 80's things started to go horribly wrong. The unflattering elasticated 'cycling short' was born and started to become mainstream. I was guilty of succumbing to to this tasteless trend, I remember being quite fond of my shiny black cycling shorts with florescent pink stripes down the sides. But we are no longer in the 80's so quite frankly ladies there is no excuse and now shorts are back in fashion there are plenty of stylish pairs to choose from. A few of my faves...
Go back to the good old 50's style with these high waisted braces shorts only £25 from asos
If you like them tight try these stretch corduary shorts from American Apparel
Or Landgirl style with these 'proper rail road shorts' from Urban Outfitters
Or this rather smashing play suit from Junky Styling
