Hi! I’m Haleigh, the Aerie Social Media Coordinator. You may remember me from our last bike short video where Erin showed you three ways to sport your bike shorts. Now, I’m back with even MORE ways to wear your fave OFFLINE™ by Aerie bike shorts. Read on to learn how I’m styling our newest bike shorts and see which styles I’m loving for this season.


Our social media coordinator @haleighkopinski is showing us three ways she’s wearing bike shorts!

What is your favorite style of Aerie bike shorts and what do you love most about them?

I love the Real Me Crossover! Not only are they SO incredibly soft, but they allow me to move in so many different ways. From getting my coffee and going to the farmer’s market to doing an at home workout or riding my bike, they’re an absolute go-to. 

Rock a crop top! I loved pairing the OFFLINE Real Me High Waisted Crossover 3″ Shortie with the OFFLINE Raw Cut Cropped T-Shirt. It’s a great option for hitting the trails and gives just enough room for movement while still being supportive.

How has your comfortability with bike shorts grown over the year?

When we filmed our first bike short video I was not really feeling the bike short trend. I think I had one pair and I rarely ever wore them. After Erin’s styling, which showed me there are so many ways to dress up a basic bike short, I fell in love and I’ve been rockin’ them ever since. Now I have no problem wearing them out and about aside from just wearing them to lounge!

What is your current go to between bike shorts and leggings?

Definitely bike shorts! The warmer the weather gets the more likely I am to be seen in a pair of bike shorts. They give me the comfort of a trusted legging with the freedom of a classic short. I even surprised myself this winter when I’d choose bike shorts over leggings and pair them with an oversized sweatshirt and fuzzy socks.

Make it a matching set. Matching sets are EVERYTHING right now. The OFFLINE Goals 9″ Printed Bike Short not only pairs directly back to the OFFLINE Printed Square Neck Sports Bra, but even has a matching headband. Triple the print = triple the love! This look even earned bonus points when it even matched Samantha’s eggs (Samantha is my Easter Egger hen)!

What is your preferred bike short inseam and why?

While all of the lengths are great, I tend to favor the 4” and 7” options. I’m only 5’2” so the shortened length of the 4″ is really a plus for me in my day-to-day (especially when I’m just hanging around the house!). When I’m doing more tedious activities like tending to my chickens or doing a more active workout, I reach for the 7″. Chub rub? I think not!

Wear a bra as a top! Talk about a dream. This OFFLINE Ribbed Square Neck Sports Bra makes for a great top on a hot summer day. Pair it with the OFFLINE Goals Ribbed 7″ Cargo Pocket Bike Short and a trendy bucket hat and you’re ready anything the day brings you… especially an outdoor lunch!

Thanks for joining me in my bike short journey! It’s been quite the ride, but I’m finally in a place where I’m more than comfortable sporting these bike shorts in almost every aspect of my life. As the social media coordinator for Aerie, I owe most of that confidence to Erin and this brand. I can only hope that these videos can inspire you to do the same. Now, how will YOU be styling your fave OFFLINE™ by Aerie bike shorts? Comment below & tell me!
