Is it possible to look stylish with cycling pants?

Why cycling shorts are a hit lately? How could you wear them? Are they only for sport? I try to answer theese questions in this post.

First of all – they are very comfortable – dividing the lycra-clad and the lycra-averse these pants are a triumph of practicality over style and meanwhile chick, cool and are enchancing the shape of the leg. Secondly, they are not just for sport – you can make different outfits even combined with a formal blazer.

A famous example of a celebrity who liked to wear them is Princess Diana – already 30 years ago she started the trend that is reappearing today. Also promis like Hailey Baldwin, Kim Kardashian, and Bella Hadid started often sporting them and photos in that style are all over the fashion blogs.

Don’t be afraid to match stretching, tight-fitting cycling pants with blousons, hoodies, jumpers, sweatshirts, etc, so you can feel comfortable not only in a casual, but also in an elegant way.

Here I matched one of my favorite black pants with a pale pink Chanel blazer. Surely the nice shoes and the bag will only make the outfit nicer, of course in a fashion way.

Believe in yourself

No matter what happens in the outside world, as long as you have faith in yourself, no darkness can touch you!” – Mehmet Murat ildan

Today I decided to share with you something that’s not just a fashion article but one that is more personal about me.

Some years ago, there was a time when the lack of belief in myself was a big factor in my life. I was not pursuing anything that I wanted to, because I didn’t think I could. Sometimes it can be hard to believe in yourself, especially if you feel like you have something to offer but don’t know how to present it and are reluctant to do it because you’re afraid what people will tell you.

But as the time goes by I have learned that it’s completely fine to try, even if I fail, and to put myself out there and be imperfect, because everyone is worthy and capable to do something they believe in.

I try to set goals for myself and meet those goals. Once I make a goal, I work hard to achieve it. My education and previous work history were very different, but inside my dreams have always been drawing me to fashion.

Staying positive and learning from my failures made me think in the right direction. So, if you did something wrong, embrace it, because you’ll have an easier time to know what is right from wrong.

Today’s post is a challenge for me, too – before I never believed enough in myself and my figure to make a photoshoot in underwear (here in one of my favorite brands “Intimissimi”) – but as you can see I did, because I managed to overcome those concerns in a fashionway.

So, just believe in yourself and follow your dreams! 🙂
