Bike shorts are having quite the fashion moment right now. The athleisure staple can go from a ride with Cody Rigsby on your Peloton bike to brunch with friends, work-from-home meetings or almost anything else easily. Brands have kept up with the trend by making bright colors and fun patterns super easy to find online, and most are super affordable at $50 or under.

If you’re looking to spice up your basic black athleisure with some colorful bike shorts, here are some great options.

We love the color on these, which are a fun cross between a springy pink and a dusty mauve. Its high-rise fitted top is also super flattering on any body type.
