"Whoever said 'orange is the new pink' was seriously disturbed." - Elle Woods, Legally Blonde
As a blogger of bicycle culture and style it is my duty, nay, my responsibility to make sure that you're riding in the forefront of bicycle fashion. With great blog, comes great responsibility. A few posts ago we talked about on-bike fashion with Momentum's Urban Legends show. Now we're going to talk about Actual on-bike fashion.
Orange is back in a big way. Take it from us, we rocked an entire District with orange accents and, yes, it looks awesome. With Halloween, the orangest of all holidays, only a few days away it seems only appropriate to give some props to the only color that shares the name of a fruit.
Enter the Trek Valenica. A baseline urban assault machine with some nice orange accents but not particularly sexy. Add a Nashville shop guy's imagination and some orange housing and look what you've got. In the words of Horatio Sanz, "No! No! Too Sexy Senor! Too Sexy!"
Think about what's hot. Orange County (Bravo's Real Housewives new season Nov.25 - don't act like you're not excited). The Syracuse Orange (Not so much in football). The House of Orange (Unstoppable in the 1670's, William III's Act of Toleration guarenteeing religious toleration to certain Protestant noncomformists was off the meat rack, son! ). Reese's Pieces (Always a classic). You love orange.
Just don't overdue it. Anybody else feel like "salmon" is due for a resurgence?
