Pedal and party in the very best of fash­ion

The Advertiser - - NEWS - ANNA VLACH FASH­ION ED­I­TOR

IT’S on yer bike, desk-to-din­ner dress­ing.

Yes, cy­cling-to-cock­tails cloth­ing is the new fash­ion for the girl about town as she’s get­ting where she’s go­ing on two wheels.

A mix of prac­ti­cal and stylish, the “sport luxe” trend – think a body-con dress with metal­lic sneak­ers or a de­signer track­suit with high heels – is per­fect for San­tos Tour Down Un­der fans.

And this is es­pe­cially true if you’re head­ing straight from all the ac­tion of Stage 1 to the Un­ley Gourmet Gala.

The an­nual street party on King Wil­liam Rd, Hyde Park, is be­ing held to­mor­row from 5pm to 10pm.

More than 20,000 peo­ple are ex­pected to at­tend the fam­ily-friendly event.

It will in­clude three fash­ion pa­rades, on the hour from 6pm, show­cas­ing gar­ments from lo­cal de­sign­ers and retailers in­clud­ing Tiff Manuell, Paige Rowe, WildChild Style­lab, Denim & Cloth, Wil­ly­wags, CaVa and The Ark. Among the Au­tumn out­fits on show will be sport luxe looks like the one from WildChild Style­lab worn by Megan Lam­pre (pic­tured).

With func­tional flats and drop-crotch pants, which are not only on-trend but com­fort­able, her en­sem­ble can be worn when bi­cy­cling to the bar, with an op­tional change into high heels.

Wild Child Style­lab’s Nicki Cara­pella said sport luxe was “for­ever evolv­ing”.

“It’s not just mix­ing sports brands with fash­ion pieces ... it’s about mix­ing ef­fort­less sim­plic­ity, com­fort and lux­ury,” she said. “The best part of this look is that’s it’s age­less.”
