Cute outfit for riding a bike

I'm a big fan of Iladora Apparel's Perfect Bike Pant. (Seriously, there is nothing better for a drizzly commute or a sloshy wine party.) So it's pretty effing cool that the brains behind the label have added two more bike-able items to the line.

Naturally, Iladora head designer Ilana Siegelman set her sights on a skirt you can a bike in. And it's a different approach than the bike-to-work skirts from Iva Jean and BetaBrand.

Instead of providing pedaling room with zippered gussets, this skirt is cut in a subtle A-line. Although if you're curvy like me, it fits more like a straight skirt. The new Mindy Skirt is made out of the same durable, quick-dry, 4-way stretch material as the Perfect Bike Pant

According to the photographer, the shaped hemline prevents the dreaded Underpants Flash. Also the skirt is cut slightly longer in back, although again, if you're curvy like me, the difference is very subtle.

Also new to the line is the Lisa Top. Think of it as a t-shirt that leveled up in style and function. It's made of an antimicrobial bamboo-cotton blend that fights stinkiness and dries quickly. I mean, human beings sweat. It happens. Sometimes when you bike pretty you bike sweaty too, you know?

Your fancy bike attire needs to work as hard as you do. Also, this shirt is as comfortable as an old broken-in tee, but looks way more stylish. Are formal t-shirts a thing? I'd definitely put this one in the dressy category.
