Fashionable womens bicycle commuting is hard to find simply because there are not alot of brands out there yet…I really wish there were more options. Right now the options are at least growing while still few and far between (and AHEM not so cheap). Still I’ve done my research, I’ve tested all the pants I can possibly test until they make more..and so I present to you my guide to Fashionable Womens Bicycle Commuting Clothing.
Why did I make this list? Biking to work is one of the greatest ways to get to work. You usually arrive much quicker than the subway or car, something exciting happens every ride (be it the cab that just misses hitting you or the butterfly that smacks you in the face), you’re getting your morning work out in, and well, the list of positivity goes on and on…needless to say I always have a smile on my bike commuting face. A much bigger smile than when I take the crowded F train and get a little too close to my fellow neighbors….
I hope with this list, you too will choose to bike to work at least once a week. Get your fitness on and reduce your carbon footprint…and hey you’ll be making an extra space for the pregnant lady on the subway.
2014 Guide to Fashionable Womens Bicycle Commuting Clothing
1. Proof NY
This brand is by far my favorite as far as design is concerned, their prices are a bit on the pricy sidem. Nonetheless, some of their garments are worth saving for! You can also get a 15% off coupon code by signing up for their mailing list. Here are my top picks:
Little Black Pants $210
Little. Black. Pants. Our take on the iconic women’s staple pairs a pioneering technical Swiss fabric with a flattering slim cut. Versatile enough to wear anywhere and so comfortable you’ll actually want to.
Brooklyn based design company with great forward fashion.
Women’s Air Forged Oxford
The perfect bike to work shirt!
Rather than using cotton, we decided to build an oxford around air texturized supplex fibers designed to combine the advantages of nylon with the beautiful handfeel of cotton. The fibers are extruded at extremely low deniers and then hit with a jet of air that permanently crinks them, giving an incredible softness and resiliency while staying far stronger than staple fibers like cotton. They are then twisted into yarns of varying thickness which are used to weave the cloth. After a few false starts we settled on a weave of two 100D fibers by one 250D and then had the fabric blazed with a Nano-Tex® treatment to finish it off.
The result is a clean, durable and breathable cloth that is a joy to wear and looks good too. Sewn in New York City, using our patent pending pivot sleeve pattern. Button down collar, custom Italian Mombasa poly buttons and one front “secret catch” pocket. What more could you want in a shirt?
Novarra’s Fell Point Poncho is a great price (only $48 in black!) so I will definitely be ordering this in the near future!
I would have loved to purchase this black dress for biking to work, but alas it is sold out
While this line IS technically a yoga commuting line (if there is such a thing?!) I wear alot of these items for biking around town and to work.
My favorite piece: Get It On Blouse
