Finally! A pencil skirt you can take for a ride! Love, love, love this!
Take it for a ride.
Ann DeOtte started designing out of a basic need — she rode her bike on a daily basis, and had trouble transitioning from bike-appropriate gear to her workday. So why not just create her own line of clothing that would be as casually fashionable as it was functional? The answer to that question is Iva Jean.
DeOtte’s pieces employ just a few clever nips and tucks to ease the transition from road to office. Take the Reveal Skirt, pictured above. The tailored skirt unzips in the back to expose additional fabric for easy pedaling, and features a high-waisted cut for comfortable coverage. Other pieces to look out for are the Everyday Blouse and the Two-Way Reflective Vest, which is reflective on one side and minimal chic on the other.
