The Best Bike Clothing - What to Wear on a Bike?
The best bike clothing may not be what we think. Riding through the city to do our chores, bring the children to school, go to work, meet with friends for a coffee or party at night, doesn’t have to be done in a boring fashion. We should all look up to the Amsterdamers for the most dazzling bike clothing there is!
Indeed we can learn a thing or two from the Mokummers, as they like to call themselves, when it comes to bike cruising in style because these girls are fierce! It doesn’t matter what bike they ride, they always look alluring and fashionable, sporting feminine dresses or skirts, ruffle or oversized blouses, skinny or wide leg pants. And don’t get us started on their choice of shoes! Ballerinas, high heels, pumps or sandals, nothing will stop them from looking exquisitely girly, not even a bike!
For those of us who always thought a denim and a tee in the summertime were the best bike clothing there is, it’s definitely time we think it over and take our cues from these ladies.
The best bike clothing - taking our inspiration from the girls in Amsterdam:
Well for one thing, Amsterdammers absolutely make no difference between riding a bike and walking. Elegance is the name of the game for them. Period!
When opting for a pair of skinny jeans, a tee and chic sneakers, they’ll make sure to add a stylish duster coat and a matching handbag.
If they choose a breton stripe, a cropped trouser and high heel pumps will be the way they’ll up the game of their bike's plastic basket!
The weather has no influence what so ever on the chic Amsterdammer. She’ll ride her bike carrying an umbrella, if she needs to, but will still sport a stylish leo coat.
Or she’ll wear a fab hat matching the hue of her tights, pumps ... and bike! Who cares about the rain?
In the summertime, chic Birkenstocks will perfect the look of a cotton maxi dress and a
cropped denim jacket, without forgetting, of course, the indispensable stylish sunglasses.
Or she'll choose an elegant short sleeve mini dress with fab sandals, even as a bike passenger, because it is such an effortless route to style.
If the wind is a little stronger than usual, a fun beanie or a sleek poncho will be an exquisite addition to her wardrobe.
Yes, these ladies wear the best bike clothing and do it unapologetically. It’s all about doing what needs to be done and not even consider the fact that you have to do it on a bike.
Case in point? What’s more romantic than a bride wearing a stunning wedding gown and sitting on the back of the groom's bike to ride to church? ...
... with the wedding guests following in style! A little cocktail dress, high heels, a fabulous hat and a chic handbag can make for the best bike clothing we ‘ve ever seen. And certainly the most glamorous one!
We can also learn from the girls in Amsterdam when it comes to the best way to carry a handbag while riding.
For example, while the trendy girl likes to wear her handbag as a shoulder bag over a fabulous coat, making sure to jazz up her look with a pair of dazzling pumps ...
... the sporty girl will go for an uncomplicated backpack, preferring to let her sophisticated bike steal the show ...
... and the fashionista won’t mind putting her handbag in a basket since a pair of sophisticated boots and a dazzling coat are proof enough of her alluring elegance.
Last but not least, the laid-back Amsterdammer will simply hang her chic leather bag on the handlebar to enjoy her ice cream cone.
So at the end of the day, what can we learn about the best bike clothing from the very stylish Amsterdammers?
Well, it’s all about staying feminine and ultra fashionable no matter the weather, the situation ... and the bike!
