Ask Shopbop: Cycle Style

Bike_Style crop

From after work drinks to picnics in the park, I have a ton of summer events I’d like to ride my bike to. How can I keep my sense of style and still safely ride?

As avid riders ourselves, the key truly is having the right bike. An upright cruiser will allow for the most versatility in your biking wardrobe. Throw on a chain guard and a fender (to limit splash,) and you can rock a white maxi dress with confidence. Temperature can vary from when you arrive and when you leave, so stick to light layers—think cottons and linens—and always bring a cardigan or Current/Elliott denim jacket. Cross-body bags are the easiest to balance, but if you can sit up straight, a sturdy Mar Y Sol tote works too. As for shoes, flat sandals are chic and safe, but if your bike skills are on par with Lance, mix it up and push your pedals in wedge L.A.M.B. sandals.
