We'll each do our part: You show off those gams, we’ll show you how to work them in cycling shorts

If you've been trawling Instagram (don't like, we know you are) you would have caught wind that bike shorts are back with a vengeance. The '90s staple donned by the likes of Princess Diana and Julia Roberts during their prime is now the cazh go-to of Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid. Camel toe be damned; the tricky piece of clothing has also been seen on the runways at Alexander Wang, Off-White and Tommy Hilfiger

Can't say we didn't see it coming — lycra is the natural next of kin with the death of leggings. Consider this the body-con trend taken to another level.

To copy the look while avoiding spin class implications, it's crucial to get your accessories right. Keeping with the athleisure trend require ugly sneakers, mini sunglasses and a pile of gold necklaces. Amping up the sex factor? Steal the boys' crisp white shirt, then pair it with sky-high stilettos. Modesty doesn't have to go out the window: Throw an oversized blazer (cinched at the waist with a statement belt or bum bag) over your cycling shorts of choice. No one will label you a prude.
