How about just leaving the car here? With a morning ride to the office, you’re not only doing sports, but also doing something for the environment and your wallet! The times when only dogged ecologists and poor students were cycling are long gone. Since cool hipsters have been romping through the fashion capitals in chic outfits, the bicycle is even considered a fashion accessory. To make sure you arrive at the office without any major fashion faux pas, here are a few styling tips and tricks.
Fashion trends for the new year
1. how can I ride a bike with Rock?
Do you love cycling and like to wear skirts and think that the two cannot be combined? Wrong: Even with a skirt you can cycle well! But so that your entire style doesn’t get under the wheels or the fluttering dress gets into the spokes, it’s best to wear tight, knee-length skirts. Important: The material should have a stretch content. If you prefer long, wide skirts, there is a simple trick to make them suitable for cycling. All you need is a coin and a hair tie.
Hold the coin – preferably a 1 or 2 Euro coin – from behind on the skirt and tie the hair tie over it from the front. The knot turns the skirt into comfortable harem pants, at least for the ride. Now nothing can flutter around your ears and you are guaranteed to be spared embarrassing denudations!
2. how do I keep my light-coloured shoes clean?
When it pours, a mudguard prevents puddle splashes on the jacket. But the shoes never come out of the number clean. This is especially annoying with light sneakers, but avoidable! White sneakers (no matter if leather or fabric) will get dirt-resistant with a super-impregnation spray. However, if the leather has already got water stains, the only thing that helps is a good shoe polish that greases the material like a skin cream and thus removes the stains.

3. Why should I go for high-tech clothing?
The cat’s eye effect was previously used exclusively by attaching 2 reflectors each to the wheels and hoping to be seen well enough by these alone, in case things got tricky. More and more high-tech functional clothing is now being equipped according to this principle – and they even look really cool. In headlights, the material shines back brightly and very visibly, and if it is not illuminated, the water-repellent coating at least ensures that you get your sheep out of the water.
