Special Credit to BillyDon for the idea, now he better join in haha! Who knows, with all this mathcing going on lately, I just may become the next fashion diva. FTR, Gina is sweatin' me about the "not really matching anything" helmet.
I'll start it off. My colors are plain and simple, never really trying to match anything but after the last Love2Pedal.com shipment, I did order the yellow and blue stitching on the shorts. Worked perfectly with the jerseys and bike colors.
First of, Sunday's fashion ride. I was on my Cannondale sporting my yellow stitching on the shorts and yes, that is a brand new first ride yellow jersey (old one was 6 years old and tearing around the camera pocket).
Last week's ride was on my Lemond showing that an outift can be matched to the bike. This wekend's ride on the Lemond was accented by yellow socks just to blow BillyDon's fashion sense. BTW, yellow socks were "Breathless Agony" socks. You have to earn them so not everybody has them. They are a rarity on the bike trail. I hsould have taken pics of the socks but Bily hadn't dreamed up this thread yet haha!
Next are the blue Falconi shorts, blue stitching with the blue jersey. Still matching the bike and accents with they yellow and blue of the Rubba Duckey socks.
With Gina, it's usually about "The Pink". Her bike is dark blue but while coordiating he pink with black, it actually makes her bike look darker which blends in the blue to match the outfit.
We are budget shoppers so none of my jerseys are over $20 and Gina does find nice a bargains on workout type clothes at places like Kohl's. She found her pink outerlayer on a clearance rack for $10. A little enhancing of the outer shell really makes the garment look a little more expensive if done right. Notice the she uses the pink garment to match the Giro helmet sporting pink flames.
Finally because her bike is blue, she will wear a blue helmet accompanied by a blue jersey and a blue underlayer on those days where she is not sure whether the weather will be cool or warm.

If for some reason the temps should rise, the underlayer (paid $10 at Target) can be removed for better ventilation and rolled up into a very small bundle and easily placed into a jersey pocket for storage.
