How To Style The Season's Easiest Celeb-Inspired Outfit Trend

This season's trend may be one of the most polarizing, but it's one of the simplest of the year. Combine trendy bike shorts with a romper fit and you get the bike-short bodysuit, also called a playsuit, unitard, or tight romper. The bike-short bodysuit began to pop up across the workout scene a couple of years ago as a comfy outfit for the gym, being seen on celebs like Emily Ratajkowski as early as 2019 (via She Finds). Today, these onesies are not only trending to wear at the gym but also in day-to-day life.

Celebrity "it-girls" have been spotted in the look because, well, they're just like us, just with a few more dollars in their hands. They want to be comfy and chic all at once. Kim Kardashian has been spotted working out in the attire, whereas other celebs have been seen wearing variations of the trend for a night out (via Instagram). The look provides a basic, cool outfit with only one piece that is easy to dress up or down for any occasion. If you are ready to grab a bike-short bodysuit for your wardrobe but are worried about how to style it, do not fret! Here are five celeb-inspired ways to rock this season's coolest trend.

After-gym chic

Hot brunch date after a quick workout? No problem! The bike-short romper is perfect for styling an "after-gym" chic look. This look provides a way to go straight from the gym to an outing with minimal effort. Simply, throw on some gold jewelry and an oversized sweatshirt or button-down. For an even cooler look, tie a sweatshirt over your shoulders (via YouTube). There's no need to even change out of your sneakers. However, working out is not a necessity to rock this street-style approved look.

Business casual

Oversized blazers have been the key to killing the fashion game this year. In fact, the term "oversized blazer" grew over 68% in search volume over the past year (via Glimpse). The simple piece can take any outfit from basic to Instagram-worthy, including the bike-short bodysuit. Blazers over unitards have become a street-style staple this summer and fall. Pair with a baseball cap, gold jewelry, and chunky shoes for a look that is the perfect combination of businesswoman and casual chic.

The clean-girl way

With the "clean-girl" aesthetic becoming a TikTok phenomenon this summer, it is no surprise we are trying to find looks that match the vibe. The bike-short bodysuit is one of those looks. "Clean" girls are probably what you'd expect- they look fresh as if they had just showered and are effortlessly gorgeous (via theĀ New York Post). For this look, simply throw on your black bike-short bodysuit, put on some chunky sneakers and gold hoops, and, finally, pull your hair up in a slicked-back bun. Voila! You have a look that combines both the celeb-inspired trend and the hottest summer aesthetic.


It is all in the details with the bike-short bodysuit trend. The right accessories can take your fit from day to night. Simply, choose classy and sparkly accessories to get your bike-short bodysuit party-ready. Obvious jewelry, a "going-out" party bag, and a pair of heels are essential to complete this look. You can even try a fun belt around the waist to accentuate your waistline and add a whole new dimension to the look (via Instagram).

For a chilly day

This trend is sure to continue into the fall season. Some brands are already coming out with long-sleeved bike-short bodysuits, but continuing with your short-sleeved, bike-short bodysuit may be even better! For those early fall days, throw on a sweater, shacket, denim jacket, or cardigan over your bike-short bodysuit (via YouTube). This is the perfect cozy outfit idea for days when it may be chilly in the morning but warm in the afternoon. Simply shed the sweater in the afternoon, and your outfit will still look complete.
