If comfort is your middle name, do like Calivintage does: a subtle print button down, jeans in that-perfect-fit, and a crossbody bag. Go with mules or full shoes, depending on your office etiquette.

It doesn’t get any easier: crisp white button down + pleated navy skirt. This outfit from You’re Welcome Savannah is as light and practical as it is pretty.

This gorgeous Danish girl was captured by Copenhagen Cycle Chic in a perfect all black ensemble, bike included. The biker boots are comfortable, the tights are warm and they cover you up, while the messy bike hair is everything

I wore this outfit three years ago at Skirt Bike Cluj. The good thing about it is that the layers are flexible – you can take off the cardigan, you can unbutton the shirt, but you can also add a scarf or jacket, depending on the weather.

The London Tweed Run is at least as chic as London Fashion Week! So many good tweed outfits! Shini of Park & Cube went with a classic blazer + midi skit combo, but she added a feminine touch with the floral shirt.

This Zagreb cyclist found the recipe for the perfect summer outfit: a floral skirt (which looks stretchy, so one can pedal in it), a fitted t-shirt, sandals, and sunglasses. You can add a blazer and fancier shoes when you get to work.

A classic trench coat and a matching bag, a classic bike and black high heels, this Hungarian girl means business. And she doesn’t let her commute compromise that.

I just love the buckled shoes on Eleonore Bridge, especially in the surprising color combination with purple and navy. She could be wearing a skirt or shorts underneath – either way, it works!

  1. I have the sudden urge to ride my bike now, and it’s almost midnight! Thanks 😀
    Seriosusly though, these outfits are awesome, love every one of them, gave me lots of ideas too!

  2. Such cute outfits! But skirts on bike only really works on frames that are made for woman city bike towns. Like the bikes typical from Netherlands :) I want one like that, because mine is for BTT

    1. You’re probably right! But I’m sure you can find ways to cycle chic :)
