Do You Commute To Work? Here’s How Not To Look A Hot Sweaty Mess When You Get There
Calling all biker babes! With the weather officially warming up, take your commute from the car or the train to your bike. Oh, and don’t worry about toting a change of clothes in your bike basket – these RAD finds can stand both your ride to work and your day at work. Happy commuting cutie!
Dress For Success
Worried about showing up to the office dripping in sweat and risking your bonus because of it? Well fear no more lady because my friends over at lululemon have got you covered. The Hot To Street Tank and Namaskar Pant II are both ultra light and sweat-wicking, plus how cute is that criss cross back?! Throw a blazer over it at work and show off your sexy shoulders at happy hour after.
Keep It Light And Loose
Work clothes or workout clothes? No one will ever know when you fly by in the bike lane wearing this drapey gem from Lucy Activewear. The Body And Mind Tunic is not only super chic but light as a feather too – goodbye sweat stains in that 8am meeting. Plus the long length will stay put as you pedal and the chafe-free flat lock seams won’t irritate your skin.
No Flashing While Riding Please
Want to wear a skirt while you cycle to the office? No problem. Worried about it flipping up to your face while you do? No longer a problem, thanks to the Tandem NY Skirt Weight I recently found on Bike Pretty. This handy dandy accessory not only clips-on to the hemline of your skirt or dress, it can even be used to hold down unruly scarves or to clip and keep loose pants away from greasy chains.
Sassy Safety First Ladies
Don’t want to wear a helmet because you think it’s ugly, nerdy or worse – it will kill your style? Well dead that way of thinking and liven up your commute with this Straw Hat Bike Helmet. People won’t even know there’s a helmet under all that sass. Each helmet is made to order and since it’s simply a base helmet with a hat cover you may want to head over to Bike Pretty and get a few other styles.
Helmet Hair Worth Having
If you don’t mind sporting a helmet, try the Intersect Helmet from Bell. Old school meets urban chic in this sleek design, and can you say a pop of color?! These candy shell glossy helmets are not only beauties they will seriously protect your brains ladies – the liner is divided into eight segments, which allows the helmet to flex and conform to the shape of your head.
Pump Those Pedals In Style
Now on to the kicks! Pumping those feet to the office deserves a little fitness fashion glam, so head over to Under Armour and get your toes in the Women’s UA SpeedForm® StudioLux™ Mid Shoes. This light, flexible, form-fitting and seamless sneaker is everything in this black snake skin print sis, plus the wraparound laces provide extra support.
From Your Workday To The Weekend
That moment when history repeats itself and your style is forever changed. Hello Brooks Heritage collection: lifestyle sneakers that are authentic reproductions of award winning shoes form the past. Genius. For example the Brooks Chariot shown here was one of the most-worn running shoes in the ‘80s. Now that’s RAD! P.S. Remakes yes, run in them today, no – Brooks has other styles for that.
Here’s A Bag You Must Snag
Well thanks a million Give Love Cycle. Biking just got 10X more chic all because of the Saddle Guilden Small Bag. This spacious satchel is made of vegan waterproof material and even has reflective lining for all you night riders. Plus the detachable strap can secure your bag to the back rack, front handlebars and can even be worn as a backpack! Welp you can kiss your other handbags goodbye now.
Professional With A Splash Of Fun
Looking for a pretty bag to store your junk on your bike’s trunk? Well look no further because I found the one at Po Campo – meet Logan. The Logan bike trunk bag sits securely on your bike’s rear rack while riding, and then post commute, becomes a crossbody bag. You can even loosen the straps a bit more and store a yoga mat along the front! There are several fun prints so definitely pick a few you cycling cutie.
Pack Light With This Lovely Find
Get ready to turn corners with ease! The Six Corners handlebar bag (also from Po Campo) fits all size handlebars and converts into a crossbody bag post ride. Perfect for the days when you just want to carry the essentials. I was able to fit lipstick, my cell, credit cards and my detachable front light (with room to spare) on a recent date ride. However the best part was the style this little baby brought to the evening.
