Well Suited

The Triangle Tweed Ride is almost here!
And not only the ride, but a whole week of bike-related events
hosted by Oak City Cycling Project.

So what will you wear for this annual event?!

A suit is always appropriate for a turn-of-the-century event. We love the rich color of this Ralph Lauren suit; and who does classic better than Ralph?! Paired with sleek riding boots you’ll be ready to ride your bike all through historical downtown Raleigh.

If you like your 1890’s fashion in vibrant colors, try a monochromatic look done in a jewel tone! The ensemble exudes sophistication while retaining a sense of excitement.

For a modern interpretation of Edwardian apparel, look for luxe fabrics done in clean lines. Typical Edwardian fashion is full of frills, but for today’s contemporary lady a sleeker silhouette is preferred.

If you care more about the event than the authenticity of the apparel, then have fun with your outfit! We’ve been inspired by Cher from Clueless for this awesomely 90’s ensemble. Include touches of the Victorian era, like low heels and gloves, but make the look your own.
