We’ll be the first to admit that we weren’t 100 percent sold on the idea of running around town in skin-tight bike shorts at first. But that was before we saw throwback photographs of Princess Diana rocking her bright coral pairs from the summers of 1995 and 1997. And you know what that means—it’s probably only a matter of time before Meg and Kate rock them, too (we'll keep our eyes peeled). Which leads us to believe that maybe we could be bike shorts people after all. Here are the ten pairs we’re eyeing for spring.
