Vogue, the temple of haute fashion,  know that it’s possible to cycle in style – “cycling is one of the most elegant way to traverse the city”. Here are Vogue staff’s top tips for cycle chic:

  • Avoid top-to-toe lycra at all costs – think pottering down country lanes, not competing in an endurance race. [Hear hear!]
  • If you must wear bike shorts, go for Prada, Emporio Armani or Unique.
  • Make like the cyclists and, while it’s warm, go for shorts or grey marle tracksuit bottoms.
  • Vogue‘s Miranda Almond recommends vests by Alexander Wang, classic Superga trainers and a Patagonia waterproof jacket. Espadrilles are another good option.
  • Make Marc by Marc your go-to shop for boldly printed shorts and jackets.
  • Get your bike fitted with a removable basket to put your handbag in – so much chicer than a back pack. [Such as our gorgeous range of removable wicker baskets here!]
