Cycling Chic through June

Looking back at my favourite streetstyle photos for June it seems that the accessory of the month is a bicycle. This trend for fashionable biking has been gathering momentum for a while. There are blogs such as Copenhagen Cycle Chic , the original chic cycling website and now the many other blogs it has spawned such as Moscow Cycle Chic, Bristol Cycling Chic and LA Cycle Chic to name just a few. There have been newspaper articles such as this one from the Sunday Times about fashionable women who cycle to work. But this is the first time that I have looked through my streetstyle picks and noticed that most of my favourite photos included a bicycle. Maybe its the recession, but its probably just the good weather. Either way I think its safe to say that all the trendy people are cycling these days. Maybe its time for me to dig my dusty (and possibly rusty) bike out from the bottom of the shed.







The Sartorialist

There were a few of my favourites not travelling by bike, but maybe theirs was parked just around the corner.
I love the way this girl from The Sartorialist casually pairs a lace skirt and chiffon top with runners, and it looks just right.


I would definitely bet on Marie Sofie from The Streethearts having a bicycle. She has such a happy, summery, carefree, climbing-trees-and-picking-flowers outfit. (And the laugh to match it) It could easily have looked a mess but she makes it look classic.


And finally my favourite. Zippora, the hottest Kiwi model of the moment, was captured by Stylesightings in this festival fabulous outfit. Amazing!

lol all I can think about is biking up Cork hills and sweating and how uncute the feels compared to these adorable little pics ;c)

Great choices. I used to love freewheeling down my road when I was younger... It wasn't so nice when I'd end up swallowing a fly by accident though. Yuck.

Thanks for your lovely comment.

I wonder if I can borrow any of these people's cool facial expressions. That's where I'm definitely lacking.
