What to wear for a bike ride

September 20, 2012

Here we are again with another installment of the What to Wear series with again some new 'additions'. So don't forget to check out the other ladies.


I have to admit, I very rarely ride my bike. If I'm being honest, this is probably the first time I've sat on a bike for the last two years or so, that's awful. But from friday on, I'll be going to university (in Ghent) and I've rented a bike there so I guess I'll be riding a bike a ton starting from next week. I'll probably hate it at the moment but I'm actually excited to have at least a little bit of exercise.


So, what do you need for a bike ride? Nothing actually. Anything will work for riding a bike, but I do prefer to wear some shorts under a dress. I wouldn't want to expose myself! But this time, I chose some colourful jeans. I'm a little ashamed to admit that I have a LOT of colourful jeans. I have three blues, three reds, three greens and one yellow. Uh-oh. Oh and yeah, not one normal or black jeans. Anyway, going on! I bought this whole outfit, minus the cardigan, when I went shopping in Antwerp and let me tell you, I am in love with these shoes. They look a bit vintage which I love, but they're brandnew. Oh and I really like the colours ofcourse.


Now check out the outfits of these fabulous ladies!

I have no idea what happened with the lighting here but well, it is how it is! 
Also, I just realised that I haven't used a bag in a single one of my outfit posts! I'll make sure to take pictures with a bag next time haha. 

What are you essentials for a bike ride? xoxo

  3. That outfit is super cute! I love the color blue of your pants--it goes so well with orange! PS also I think we're bike buddies. Yours looks like an Uptown Breezer--yes? Anyway, it's a nice lookin' bike regardless.

  7. I love those pants!! Like...you have no idea!! I saw a pair at my favourite store the other day (...the grocery store, if you're wondering...) and didn't buy them! ACK! What was I thinking?!?!

    You can rent bikes? I've seen that service in some of the more "touristy" and large cities I have visited, but we have nothing like that here. Sounds awesome! Much better than renting a silly car...

    1. Thank you, you should totally go back and get them haha :)

      And well yes, since all our 'university facilities' are fairly close to each other, it's really cool that we can rent a bike instead of having to go by foot or by a stinking car haha :D xo

  8. You look water cuter than I do when I go for a bike ride! I have a single speed with cages now so I can't wear cute shoes. :)

  9. You look so cute and colorful! Smart that you wore jeans that taper in at the end... I went biking once wearing jeans with a slight flare. Such a bad idea! Hah. If you couldn't tell, I don't bike either. I am actually rather terrible at it.

    Also, I don't think you ever need to apologize for owning colorful jeans. I think that's pretty awesome, actually!

    1. Thank you so much! And yes, I definitely make sure I can't get anything between the wheels haha. And well, I'm a little ashamed I have so many haha, even though I totally love them.

  10. I love how you styled these bright colored skinnies! And I love your bike! I accidentally bought a boy's bike because it was cheap, and now I can't wear dresses when riding it. Bummer. But I may be able to wear skinnies! ;) -Jessica L
