Cycling clothes for the city and commuting.
If a bicycle is not a sports equipment for you, but first of all a vehicle, and you prefer leisurely riding around the city, trips to work and home, as well as trips to forest park areas, then you can do with properly selected sportswear, it is not necessary to buy professional cycling equipment.
What should I pay attention to? First, choose comfortable things that do not constrain the movements of your arms and legs. Tight clothing – jeans, a tight–fitting dress or trousers from a business suit - will limit the work of muscles. Some casual clothes have thick and voluminous seams that can painfully rub the skin. Also, do not wear things with a too narrow belt, as they interfere with breathing normally while riding.

Secondly, make sure that the legs of the trousers are not wide and not flared, as they can get into the chain and break, and even lead to a fall. The easiest and most affordable option is to wear T–shirts or sweatpants, narrowed to the ankle. Running clothes may also be suitable.
If you ride to work in casual clothes of a wide cut, then special clips for trousers will help solve the problem.
You can buy bicycle garters for dresses, sundresses and skirts.
If it's hot and dry outside, then you can wear a regular sports T-shirt made of synthetic breathable material on the upper half of the body. If it rains in the summer, a light sports windbreaker will do.
With the onset of cold weather, the principle of layering comes to the fore – the key to maintaining the right body temperature, regardless of whether you are driving or standing still, the wind is blowing or it is raining. While riding, you warm up, so cycling clothes should start with a base layer – thermal underwear or T-shirts / longsleeves made of synthetic material (things made of merino wool are also suitable). The main task of the base layer is to remove sweat. This is followed by a warming layer – fleece, sweatshirt or jumper. It should retain heat.
