17 Cute Biker Shorts to Buy Now

Believe it or not, biker shorts are working their way out of the gym and onto the runways (and into the wardrobes of just about every celeb, especially the Kardashian crew.) While you can't go wrong with the classic black spandex look, designers are eager to push boundaries with this trend, so you'll also find them in hundreds of prints and patterns, interesting (if not exactly exercise-friendly) fabrics, and with embellishments (belts, cutouts, mesh, zippers) galore. Here, the coolest and cutest biker shorts on the market now.
