Lately everywhere you look "eco-consumerism" is all the rage, from those "I'm Not a Plastic Bag" bags everyone seems to be toting (to the left, Keira Knightley) to high-end designers making clothes with 100% organic cotton (the simple dress to the left is from Phillip Lim's Go Green Go line). I am all for people buying these wonderful products (believe me, I know you guys hear about them enough), but as much as I wish I could, I can't afford a lot of the eco-chic clothes out there, so I try to help out the environment a little by doing other things such as biking.
Spring is here and I TRY to ride my bike everywhere because a) I can't drive yet (finally taking drivers ed in fall) and b) it's good for the environment and it's free. When you picture a serious biker you may picture someone in head to toe spandex not unlike Jane Fonda here....
BUT, it does not have to be that way, as many celebs or just plain stylish people on bikes have proven. I have been to Amsterdam where it seems like EVERYONE rides a bike, and have witnessed it myself. I also find Copenhagen Style Chic to be an inspiration.. basically they take pictures of stylish women riding bikes, it may sound a little creepy but think of it as a Facehunter/Sartorialist except on BIKES! some pictures:
