Let's all be honest here — biker shorts are not the classiest trend. I mean, can you imagine wearing tiny spandex shorts in front of your boss or even your grandma? Yet somehow the Kardashian-approved look ended up on Chanel's spring 2019 runway (paired with elegant tweed blazers and lots of pearls). Now every fast-fashion retailer is co-signing on the stretchy trend for 2019, and is stocking up on similar versions.

Zara just dropped a fresh take on the trend that has a high waistband and two metal zippers decorating the front. H&M has a simple wear-everyday pair that's a tad bit longer, which is perfect for taller types. And it's not all thigh-hugging spandex options out there. Mango's cyclist bermuda shorts look more like cut-off trousers — perfect for those who aren't a fan of clingy fabrics. They'll play a huge role in the short-suit trend that we'll see more of this spring.
