3 Rules for How to Look Chic While Riding A Bike

Splash News

Not only is biking a perfect way to get into shape, but it’s also a fun form of transportation. So while the Tour de France ends this Sunday and those impressive mega-athletes will surely be sporting spandex, you dear reader, as a more leisurely rider, can definitely opt for more casual look. Here are three chic outfits for biking in style.

1. Say It With Stripes.  
Going for a weekend jaunt? These Topshop denim culottes are perfect for biking since there is plenty of legroom and the Breton top gives the outfit a Parisian vibe. Add a bit of color by tying a red bandana around your neck, which can discreetly absorb sweat as well. Ooh la la!

3. Embrace the Pajama Top.
Late for meeting your friends at the park? Well don’t you sweat it (not until you get on your bike at least). If Rihanna has taught us anything it’s that wearing pajamas in public is a-okay! Just pair your simple white pajama top — like this one from Sleepy Jones — with a classic pair of skinny black jeans are you’re off. Wearing loafers makes the whole ensemble look intentional (even if it’s not).
