Call the Fashion Police!
Riding in a dress can be done! (Luckily, no one has a picture of what I looked like while riding my bike with capris and this dress. For that, the fashion police should be alerted. HA!)
I remember a couple months ago someone asked Julie and I what we wear when we bike to work. Honestly, we both have flexible jobs where we don't have to wear professional clothes every day; however we do dress nicely for work and from time to time do need to wear a suit or more professional attire.
The trick is preparation. For instance, today I hosted a meeting at my office where I needed to look nice. I wanted to wear a dress, so I wore capris under the dress making sure not to expose anything during my morning commute. It was pretty easy and I had no difficulties riding my bike. Sure, I looked odd and did get a couple "huh?" looks but oh well. After the capris came off, I looked "work nice." You should try it for it can be done!!!
What do you think - should 2 Women 4 Wheels have a bike-to-work fashion show? :)
