Here at Total Women’s Cycling we’re not usually trend followers when it comes to fashion, but it’s been hard to ignore the recent influx of polka dot designs in the world of cycling apparel.
Whether it’s a result of the Duchess of Cambridge wearing that now infamous pale blue polka dot number from Jenny Packham for the first appearance with her newborn, George. Or just that bike clothing manufacturers have realised that this retro print never goes out of fashion, we have to admit – we’re enjoying this dotty resurgence.
Open any fashion magazine and you will see pages filled with spotty clothing and hundreds of column inches proclaiming that polka dots look good on anyone whatever their age, shape or style. Apparently it’s a classic retro look that is “ALWAYS on trend…” don’t you know!
Sartorial banter aside, if you love a dot or two we’ve collected the best designs in the cycling world so you can sport some bicycle polka on your next ride. Don’t panic though, we won’t make you resemble the ‘King of the Mountains’ with the maillot à pois rouges!
