When she’s not pedalling her way to glory, Victoria Pendleton – Olympian track cycling champion is giving women the kind of fashion inspiration we often see in magazines. Listed as one of the hottest athletes by multiple sources, her Instagram page is living proof of why the fashion police love her style and class. Along with being bit by the wanderlust bug, she posts occasional pictures of her in perfectly coordinated outfits and they’re always worth the wait. Let’s take a look at the ones we have come to love and adore, but can’t copy because no one does Victoria Pendleton like Victoria Pendleton herself!
Making the race course grass her own in an exceptionally well-tailored tweed suit and a feathered hat is Pendleton defining elegance and exuberance. She ditched the usual flowy garments which pose as a dress code for women to see the matches and went for a bolder, sleeker choice of clothing.
If “Country roads, take me home” had a face, this would be it. Let’s just address how aesthetic this photo is, and how easy-going yet stylish the ensemble looks. All we really want to do is take the seat next to hers and admire the etherealness that is Victoria in these scattered sun rays! Who knew a sky blue shirt with curly cuffs and black pants could give such a fresh summery vibe.
Bringing her British girl game to a French city in the South, Victoria is every bit the tourist with the sole motive of having the best time in a stranger country. Props to her for finding a background with doors exactly the colour of her dress and the off-white wall looks like it was made just for this photo!
The glass of wine in Pendleton’s hand is the one accessory she looks like she really needed, especially after looking like a million bucks and having all eyes on her. Hats do wonders for this lady in a maroon lace dress, with the kind of fit and flare silhouette we all wish to achieve out of every dress we own!
Pendleton is giving us major Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s vibes in that LBD and statement neck piece. The kind of confidence she is exhuming checking herself out in the mirror like that; now that’s what makes this outfit all the more glamourous!
