Belgian label A.F. Vandervorst seems to think so. At Milan Fashion Week, the design house showed a number of gym-ready wedding looks, nearly all of them featuring bike shorts.
The unforgiving spandex bottoms have enjoyed quite a ride lately — and not just to the altar. Kim Kardashian has been sighted on several occasions rocking Spanx-like Yeezy workout shorts with heels, and stars such as Bella Hadid have been snapped wearing bike shorts to splashy parties. Influential brand Off-White is selling luxe versions of the clingy garment for $400.
At the A.F. Vandervorst runway event, white, formal biker shorts were paired with everything from puff-sleeved, taffeta mini dresses (so ’80s) to suit jackets to satin-and-lace hoodies — something for every woman planning a Julia Roberts “Runaway Bride”-style getaway mid-ceremony.
