Gorgeous - got to love a bit of colour to brighten up a drab autumn day.

Wow a very '40s look but the shocking blue tights make it modern.

Very brave color block combination, love the vintage vibe and the effortless chic.

You've been taking a lot of photos around the NYU area. I'm there all the time and I agree--kids are smartening up. Especially grad school students.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE that she is wearing a helmet. I never see ppl in your bike-riding pics with one.

Here in Oz it is the law to wear one, so all my dream of a gorgeous retro bike with a wicker basket on the front are dashed with a 'do wrecking helmet.

First thing first- I love that you took this shot on University place, in NYC. I do most of my people watching there (a nice spin off from the Union Square crowd), and it's a little strip of so much inspiration. :-)

Especially like the subject above. She knows how to match colors so that she stands out in an interesting way- maybe because she knew that riding bikes in NYC is very dangerous. ;-) I love the fur collar, it's trend without lacking originality.

She's such a lady. I love it.


Blogger Carrie said ... (9:17 AM) : 

wow. totally love this, all of it. never seen a bike helmet look so cool.

is that a brompton bike? even more cool to be riding a foldable bike. her helmet is a great model for how to lend funky cool to a cycling outfit.

I've never seen coloured tights look so good, it's like she's spray painted her legs. The (slightly orange) red of the dress is fab with them too.

So glad to see someone actually wearing a helmet! It's silly to compromise safety for vanity -- and here she didn't have to.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:34 AM) : 

Finally a girl wearing a helmet and still looking stylish!

Whenever I see style shots of girls on bikes I think they are super cute but unrealistic. I cycle to work everyday in London and try to dress like I normally would in dresses and heels but not to wear a helmet would be suicide! I am very happy to see this.

I lose it at the shoes, I don't think they work with over all look. Some funky bright Fluevogs and then a real winning bold fashion look. Great effort and definately bold.

I like the dress... but that is the smartest bicycle I've seen-- the low bar makes it easy to ride with a skirt.

great dress, high heels, and a bicycle , how does she do it?

Anonymous Ela said ... (1:41 PM) : 

I don't know how many of us have noticed this at first glance but this woman has beautiful calves, the muscles well defined and formed apparent even over the thick, blue stockings! She also looks very confident with her posture, facial expression, and the assemble of the outfit.
Hmm, maybe it is just my feminist side holding an M.S. in Women's Studies :)

If you asked me "would you like blue, red and whtie all together?" I'd surely answer you "of course, no!" But here they are amazing and this outfit is such young ...


Anonymous Marisa said ... (2:53 PM) : 

Glorious. Some of the recent photos have been a little too close to ordinary/practical for me. This woman looks really fantastic and in fact she's really well-dressed for a bike ride, in which your torso gets hot and needs air to keep from being sweaty, and your neck and chest get cool (primarily for women who have lower-necked clothes) and needs a scarf or fur stole to stay comfortable. Plus helmet. She makes the helmet look fashionable!


Blogger Kristina said ... (3:20 PM) : 

oh my... the colors in this entire picture are phenomenal! the first thing that caught my eye was the contrasting green and yellow leaves at the top.

and then to see the red of the dress.

and then the big surprise of her blue tights and white shoes!

all complemented by the red green and yellow newspaper dispensers.

nicely done! I love color blocking.


Blogger Liz S said ... (3:45 PM) : 

Yes, my first thought was hooray for the helmet--and it looks so bold and brazen with that outfit--I love it.

Love the dress, love the the fact that she makes safety look good.


Blogger simonesays said ... (4:23 PM) : 

I really just LOVE that she's wearing a helmet. I can never bring myself to wear one when I ride my bike - then again, I do live in a small town with next to no traffic worries - but if she can rock one, maybe I can, too.

Makes me think of a little girl playing dress-up and nobody made her change into "something more appropriate" before leaving the house. I like it!


Blogger Lizzie Derksen said ... (5:14 PM) : 

Both she, and her bike, are ridiculously cool.


Anonymous LIZPR said ... (5:28 PM) : 

Cool, striking outfit. North Americans (including myself) are so un-daring with tights - this is great. And thank you for shooting a cyclist with a helmet. I love your romantic shots of women riding their bikes, hair flowing .... but here in Toronto it's risky to go without a helmet - and I'll gladly mess up my hair to be safe .... great shot.

This is a daring outfit - a little too red, white and blue for me though.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:30 PM) : 

I love this: the colours, the attitude, th emix of practical and fun. Note to helmet-loving posters: if you feel it's too dangerous to cycle without a helmet then your city is not offering enough cycle infrastructure and cycle-positive culture.

The bike is not a Brompton. It appears to be a coaster-brake version of a Bianchi folding bike---Like this but without the little horn for the caliper brake on the rear wheel:

Very cool bike, though.

these colors are so vibrant! i, too, ride my bike around new york, but haven't mastered the heels/dress combo quite yet!

Unlike the previous one this has both form and function. I love it and the colors are fantastic. Its easier to ride a bike in tights and those blue tights, I bet she stops traffic! Love the dress too.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:40 PM) : 

Interesting sleeves on the dress, coupled with the sash knotted in back, along with the white ankle straps looks very vintage. Love the blue tights. Color combo has a patriotic vibe to me!

How nice to see a well-dressed cyclist WITH a helmet! I always wear mine, even though I admit it feels a bit out of place without a corresponding spandex outfit. Still, though, my brain is way to important to risk it sans helmet! Let this be a lesson people: you can wear a helmet and look good doing it!

{This really isn't intended as a comment, but rather is a complaint about the moderation of the comments.}

First of all---I love your blog. I check it almost everyday, unless I'm traveling.

And yeah, I'm a geek, and I especially love folding bikes.

Someone (anonymous) thought that perhaps this bike was a Brompton, which is obviously is not. I spend a full hour trying to identify what bike that is, and I think I got it right with the Bianchi post I posted a few days ago.

A lot of things like Vespa scooters or Piaggios are pretty easy, but this particular bike isn't, and I really think an obscure vintage bike is as much a part of this woman's style as fur and (awesome) tights.

So I'm complaining that my post didn't cut it because I not only did it take me (a folding bike geek) an hour to identify it, it's a cool and stylish item your readers might appreciate.

Blogger Bonita said ... (6:37 PM) : 

I am very glad to see a chic person with a helmet. I live in a place with a lot of cars, and it's a must to wear helmets! But I love to look nice when I bicycle too. Sometimes, I think I'll be okay, and I can look better without it. (Not a good choice, I know) This photo is a proof for me that I can look as chic being safe too!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:38 AM) : 

love this. the look is too fun and i'm always in love with a cyclist smart enough to wear a helmet!
