Get the Look: Cycling Chic
With London's annual Bike Week commencing over the weekend, Rokit HQ have been inspired by images of retro bikes and oh-so cute outfits to match. Promoting cycling as a socially and environmentally healthy sport, one thing Bike Week forgets to mention is how chic you can look on your two wheel ride. Encouraging you to dig out your old bike and get it repaired for free, we also encourage you to finally leave behind your winter coat and embrace a summer look whilst riding your bicycle. What better reason to take up cycling?
50s summer style undoubtedly goes hand in hand with cycling chic. For a glamorous and yet practical take on the trend, team a cropped halter neck with waist hugging shorts. Add a pair of frilly ankle socks and classic brogues as the perfect companions to this 50s look. Finally, make sure you ace cycling chic with a patterned headscarf to keep your hair off your face whilst cruising on your bike!
