Olivia Culpo is serving up the perfect spring and summer outfit combination just in time for warm weather.

The model hit the shore on Monday alongside her beau and NFL superstar Christian McCaffrey, sharing pictures from their sunset bike ride on Instagram. For the outing, Culpo tapped into athleisure trends in a coordinating white crop top and biker shorts set with a cozy tied sweater to match.

Biker shorts rose to prominence in 2020 during a newfound appreciation for athleisure and comfortable attire, spotted on the likes of Hailey Baldwin, Tracee Ellis Ross, Emily Ratajkowski and a slew of other major celebs in the past year alone. In 2021, the easygoing silhouette is continuing to remain a staple in stars’ off-duty rotations as well.

For the outing, Culpo also tapped into another major trend from a few years back: dad shoes. Earning their name for their oversize nature and chunky appeal, these sneakers took over the celebrity style scene in 2018 with a little help from Gigi Hadid, Jaden Smith, Balenciaga and more major power players.

As for the former Miss Universe, the media personality chose a classic pair for her revitalization of the trend courtesy of New Balance. The Boston-based brand’s 990v5 silhouette has been a staple in closets for decades thanks to its blown rubber outsole and durable midsole technology. You can shop the comfy-chic design for $185 at Zappos.com.

Beyond her endless pageant titles, you may recognize Culpo from her appearances in “I Feel Pretty” and “Model Squad.” She also has starred as the face of ad campaigns for Rampage Denim, Express and Madison James, as well as served as an ambassador for the likes of DSW, Color Ultime, GHD and more. Her go-to brands for footwear as well include Brian Atwood, Jimmy Choo and Bottega Veneta along with Gucci and Manolo Blahnik.

In addition to wearing trending ensembles, Culpo dipped her toes into the design world by announcing last year that her new face mask brand, More Than a Mask, is officially partnering with Express. Proceeds from the masks will go toward Feeding America, with one mask equaling out to 100 meals for those in need. The masks come in a mix of patterns and prints, available at Express.com for $20.
