Fashion Math: BikePretty deciphers the formula for Hi-Viz style on your bike
Here at BikePretty HQ, we take
fashion safety seriously. Now that we’ve all quit Daylight Savings Time cold turkey, slapping on some hi-viz kit is a necessary evil great way to get the attention you deserve during your commute home.
"What if I look like a huge dork?" you may be asking yourself. But don’t worry! Just take a page from the workbook of the lovely ladies of Stylesight, a trend forecasting agency that is used by fashion companies all over the world: meaning these are literally the trendiest people on the planet.
The equation is pretty simple: avoid unsightly clashing and wear a pair of classic black trousers to complement the
blinding fluorescent yellow and silver of a safety vest. Now that you’ve grabbed their attention, get them to admire your sun-deprived complexion by setting it off with dark, glossy locks and a captivating red lip. Just find three friends and repeat the look for each of them. Easy.
Note: Sadly, Kelly’s gorgeous yellow bike was stolen last week. She tells me that she has since acquired a new frame to build out, but in the meantime her hunky French boyfriend Seb is giving her rides to work on their tandem. Awww!
