Hi lovelies,

This is going to be a special style post of AW 20-21. I know most of you stay at home, but some of you need to go to work every day and the best and most conscious way to go to work in a city: take a ride on your bike.

I often receive the excuse it is 10 degree(50F), it is too cold, it is raining or asking how you can be cycling in these shoes or skirt? Believe me, only snowing and frosting when you cannot use a regular bike (yeah there are certain which you can), just your bicycle is equipment well or your clothes are inappropriate.

Step 1– bike: beside the general lights and prism, which you always have on, right? You will need a raincoat, helmet and might be a chain guard. Of course be slower as the breaks stopping distance is longer. Use a trench coat, a leather coat or a warmer coat to be stylish, but always keep a raincoat with you. The raincoat should be longer to cover your clothes and bags, but in a small package to be carriable.

Step 2– bags: you do not need to be sporty if you work in an office: use leather cross bodies or bag packs, but if you have a storage basket on your bike just any bags work.

Step 3– shoes: mainly I would say it should be flat, occasionally can be high heels, but any stabile heeled boots can work. I would suggest Chelsea or riding boots or an oxford, ballerina, loafer flats or a great sneaker.

Step 4- clothes: it should be warm enough, but not as warm to perspire.

  • trousers and jeans: skinny, slim or mom jeans are fine, but palazzo and flare style will only work if you take the ends into your shoe or socks, which can be unflattering
  • Skirts and dresses: the most comfortable are the A-line miniskirts, but any mini will work, just cover it with a longer coat. For midis stay to A-line ones, over the knee pencil skirts are not working at all.
  • Upper you can wear just whatever you would, but turtle necks are the greatest.
  • Accessories: scarves are really stylish, but you can leave your mask on with your turtle neck too. If you need to ride early or late you will need a pair of gloves and might be a cashmere headband under your helmet.

So ladies protect yourself from the masses and ride your bike stylishly.
