    Priorities while biking to work: Don't get hit, don't wipe out. Sure, you want to make a statement on the sidewalk (gotta give those street snappers something to do), but when you’re dashing between cars — especially when commuting home at night — getting noticed is even more critical.

So, Haute Réflecture by Vespertine is here to change that with head-turning reflective wares like vests, belts, jackets, and even dresses that are equal parts stylish and practical. The brand’s NYC-based designs are made from 100% recycled and recyclable polyester and will make you visible from within 2,000 feet of a car’s headlights thanks to its 3M Scotchlite materials.
