City Legging | Bike To Boardroom

Stockholm Streetstyle

I love how this woman is poised halfway between the bike and the boardroom. The double-breasted gilet brings authority to an otherwise very get-up-and-go outfit. Could you rock this look with our City Trouser or Leggings, a Vince Camuto vest, and a Melie Bianco handbag? Image credit to Stockholm Street Style.

Bike Friendly Cafes and Restaurants

I’m thrilled to see studies suggesting a positive relationship between bike lanes and restaurant revenue. Still, not all cafes and restaurants are equal when it comes to courting cyclist business! Some places are hard to lock up at within the block; some are just less than friendly. Here’s a few places in Seattle and farther afield [...]

Chic Travel: Trip To Europe | Iva Jean

Packing list for Europe by Iva Jean

Europe in the spring! Now is the perfect time to go, before peak season. Pro tip: though we love chic athletic shoes at home, the trend doesn’t always translate abroad. Pack sophisticated sandals like these Medwinds espadrilles instead, $138. When sandal time is done,  we love the MM6 by Maison Martin Margiela, $195, because what’s more fun [...]

The Brompton Folding Bike

Brompton Folding Bike

This is the Brompton, the folding bike so popular that its riders call themselves “Bromptonauts.” What’s all the fuss about? Its beautiful English design looks distinctive and elegant.

Stylish Bike Bags

Stylish Bike Bags

Looking for a chic yet bike-able bike bag? I am. Hours on the internet have me torn between a few choices. Una offers an eco-friendly leather option ($148) that goes from shoulder bag to handlebar-bag. Under 9 inches, it would fit nicely inside my basket! I like that Harper Ave’s Kazuyo ($209) is both elegant and roomy. This frame pocket ($159) from [...]

Spring-Ready Bike Shoes

Spring Ready Bike Shoes

Spring is upon us, and so are some very chic shoes. Better weather means more style options for bike shoes. High heels? Yes please! One secret is this: the same heels that would kill on a half-hour walk don’t bother me at all on a half-hour ride. 1. Right now I’m eyeing Report’s Brynna ankle [...]

Alfie Douglas Bike Saddle Bag

Alfie Douglas Utility Case Saddle Bag

We are totally smitten with this leather bike saddle bag from London’s Alfie Douglas. $230, available in black and tan. This robust utility case is hand-stitched in beautiful quality vegetable tanned Belgian shoulder leather. The distinctive style of this case is created by using a single piece of leather to give a continuous structured form. [...]

Inspired by New Yorkers and their bicycles, the Adalene bag has a structured silhouette with single top [...]
