There's nothing better on a summer weekend then hopping on a bike for a leisurely ride. We're planning on strapping on a helmet and pedaling to some outdoor concerts this weekend. But dressing for two-wheeling can be tricky. How can you avoid helmet hair? And is it possible to still look cute without indecent exposure by a wind-whipped sundress? We've answered all those questions for you for this week's installment of The Weekender.

Style tips
  • It's convenient that crossbody bags are such a big trend this season as they're also the perfect bag for bike riding. We love this bag by cult designer and celeb fave Rebecca Minkoff.
  • Rompers give you the playful feel of a sundress but are more practical for traveling two-wheel style. You get a flirty floral cut and don't have to worry about your skirt blowing up while riding.
  • The trilby is the fedora of 2010. We suggest throwing one in your bike basket to cover up potential helmet hair (because we always ride with a helmet!).
  • If you want the functionality of a sneaker with a little more style, these playful saddle-shoe inspired oxfords are a great pick.
