And while we fawn over those flawless biking beauties in Amsterdam (doing it in sky-high pumps, no less), we know S.F. isn't as terrain-friendly. Trekking from home, to work, and to happy hour through hills—in heels—sounds like a frustrating task (read: wipeout). But, that doesn't mean you have to toss on a played-out pair of sneaks and a lackluster outfit to match. Nope, instead we've constructed four hot ensembles that will take you from 9-to-5 and beyond in a flash. Peep them here, take notes, and ride on!
Think biking in heels is a no go? Guess again! Well, at least in moderately high wedges it seems to be all gravy. We can't speak for six-inchers. A color-soaked, semi-wide leg pant (you don’t want your garment getting stuck in the gears) stylishly accompanies this sleek Linus cycle, plus a cozy knit, in case it gets chilly riding through the wind. The spiked Joomi Lim necklace adds just the right amount of edge that’s appropriate for the office, but is playful enough for drinks with friends after the 9-to-5 grind is over. Oh, and don’t forget the subtle crossbody bag to give you a hands-free — hassle-free — ride over.
