This is one of my favorite streets for shopping, people watching, coffee drinking, and of course cycling. I never tire of watching the stylish peeps riding by. Boots, scarves, beards, berets, colorful bags. Eye candy galore!
Plus, everyone always slows down to look at the shop windows (which are always oh-so enticing). Some people see me taking photos and give a smile. Thanks guys!
It’s winter, so bring on the boots! Low boots, tall boots, boots with heels, cowboy boots–no matter the size, color or shape, Amsterdammers love their boots. Check out these Sunday boots on bikes…
Loving. This. Hair.
The green spectrum seems to be the ideal summer color this time of year. In a matter of a couple minutes, I spotted 3 lovely ladies donning the color in style–and on their bikes of course! So, yes, go out and enjoy this weather! Hopefully it’ll stick around a while…
There’s so much going on here. First of all, the mohawk. (No, it wasn’t just the wind). Awesome! Then the Louis bag. Classy. Bright blue jeans? Totally hot. Old school Nike’s. Yes, love it. Slick wheels–obvi. Should I expect anything less in the 9 Streets?!
I don’t think so.
Aude is right! More fur is just what doctor ordered for these chilly winter days. I’m seeing so much fur around the city, aren’t you? Fur hoods, fur hats, fur scarves, fur mitts, fur boots–it’s everywhere! But it’s best worn by bike.
Most people in Amsterdam are stylish: green parka for him, red lipstick for her. So it goes for these hipsters and they seem to be quite serious about their looks!
I was in Paris this weekend and couldn’t help but notice all the girls on bikes! Très sexy! Looks like the Velibe bike share system is getting put to good use. I tried it too! It’s amazing how much smaller the city became when riding a bike. Plus, the first 30 minutes are free! Fantastique!
Added benefit of cycling everyday: nice legs. Pairs perfectly with super short shorts, black tights, and studded booties.
Show it off ladies!
As we wrote in our previous post, the absolute highlight of the Cycle Chic Conference in Budapest last weekend, was the Bicycle Fashion Show. When you think of a fashion show, you think of a catwalk, spotlights, photographers, press, and beautiful models. That was all the case in Budapest. But the models in the fashion show were very special. Not only did they walk the catwalk with (their own) bicycles, but also, they were not professional models, but just normal people that love cycling in their city, Budapest.
The models had been spotted on the streets and subscribed themselves to participate in the fashion show. The goal was to show the beauty of cycling, that cycling is for everyone and that you can wear the clothes you love the most while cycling. No need for lycra of sport gear.
Check out Budapest’s stylish cyclists!
It is said that the bow tie was invented in the 17th century as a scarf around the neck to hold together the opening of the shirt, during wartimes. Although this might be unknown to this stylish fellow, he might unconsciously have been inspired by some famous bow tie wearers in the past, like Fred Astaire, Karl Lagerfeld or Steve Jobs, who used to wear bow ties in the 1980s.
Whatever his thoughts are, fact is that he just looks great on his bike! So therefore, I take a bow for all bow tie wearers out there. Do you also fancy to be fancy? See here how to tie your bow tie:
