Are you getting into bicycling season this year? I am so in love with bicycles. It's an ideal and the most ecological transport in the world, but the reason why I am telling you all this is the following: what kind of summer outfits can be used for riding bicycle? It's no wonder why women tend to have wardrobe concerns when it comes to riding the bike. There are two ways of dressing: a) a polished look (well put-together) and b) more casual. I hear lots of people saying it's a must-have to wear spandex or sweaty gym clothes once you sit on a bike, well, it's a big MYTH, you know!
That's a polished look. It features a pale blue shirt worn with white mini shorts embellished with braided brown leather belt. Complete the look by adding thong sandals.
I decided to share with you my personal favorite Polyvore clothing sets what you can use as your inspiration for the next bicycle ride. I love to see casual outfits completed with flip-flops, but you can experiment with various sandals, flat pumps, espadrilles and slip-ons. Better not to use too much jewelry and accessories, keep things simple. I also would not recommend you riding in heels, but you can go for glamour clothes during your city ride. It's a summer out there, so why don't you have some fun? It's a perfect time for a ride, so get inspired by these stylish combos and tell me which ones are your favorites.
If you are more into casual looks, then I recommend to try on loose-fit short-sleeve deep green V-neck T-shirt paired with light blue, ripped denim cut-offs, black sandals, side shoulder leather bag and Clubmaster sunglasses:
