Who hasn’t heard about or seen mobility electric scooters for sale in Sydney? They are practically everywhere that they’re allowed to be ridden in Australia.
The simple and practical reason is that they are a fun and convenient way to get around — and more.
E-scooters are also a great opportunity to express one’s personal style.
Come to think of it, whether you’re commuting to work, cruising around the city, or going out for a date night, there are electric scooter outfits and accessories that complement every occasion. So, who says you can’t be classy and well-dressed on an e-scooter?
What to wear, how to dress suitably when you’ll be riding an e-scooter, here are some tips and perfect outfits that will make you look stylish as well as comfortable.
But — Safety first.
Safety comes first before looking savvy and fashionable. Wearing protective gear, especially a helmet is a must. It protects the skull, brain, and neck from injury and is therefore crucial. This is why it is mandatory by law to wear a helmet when out riding. But wearing a helmet doesn’t mean you have to do away with or compromise on style. Mearth offers stylish helmets designed to look cool and are a great match to your outfit.
You can choose a full-face helmet for faster scooters, or a helmet that protects your eyes from sunlight, rain, dust, and insects. You can also choose a helmet that has a visor, a chin strap for added functionality.
Eye protection is another important piece of safety gear. You can wear sunglasses, goggles, or glasses to protect your eyes from glare, wind, and debris. Just make sure your eye protection fits well and doesn’t obstruct your vision.
Other recommended safety gear are: gloves, elbow pads, knee pads, and reflective vests – as these items can protect your hands, joints, and body from abrasions and impacts in case of a fall or collision.
These safety gears help to make you, as the rider, more visible to other road users in low-light conditions, or if you will be riding at night.
Dress for the weather
During summer, you want to dress light and be comfortable. During fall, you want to feel warm so you’ll want to cover your whole body as much as possible to protect you from the cold and feel snug, preventing windburns, sunburns, or frostbites.
You need to layer your clothing appropriately, depending on the season and the weather. During winter, you can wear a thermal base layer, a sweater or hoodie, a jacket or coat, pants or leggings, boots or sneakers, a scarf or neck warmer, a hat or beanie, and gloves. In summer, you can wear a t-shirt or tank top, shorts or skirts, sandals or flats, a hat or cap, and sunglasses.
Remember to choose clothes that are breathable, moisture-wicking, water-resistant, or windproof to enhance your comfort and performance. Fabrics like cotton, wool, fleece, nylon, polyester, or spandex are great options.

Choose to wear these types of clothes that are:

Wear a thick blouse, then put on a sweater, a coat or blazer for extra warmth. Men can look clever but also practical wearing a suit or a shirt with a tie and then pair it with sneakers or loafers. Chinos, slacks or jeans with a polo or button-down shirt look great too, just add a blazer or jacket for extra buff.
For accessories, wear sunglasses, a helmet with a visor, don’t forget to wear gloves too. If you need to bring your laptop, put it, including your documents, and other essentials in a scooter bag, or inside the trunk of your e-scooter.

The ladies can wear jeans or shorts with a t-shirt or tank top, then layer it with a hoodie or jacket. You can also wear skirts or a dress with leggings or tights. Put on a cardigan or vest for extra flair. You can also wear jeans or joggers with a t-shirt or hoodie. Layer it with a leather or denim jacket.
