Rita Ora wears her favourite Janet Jackson tour T-shirt over a pair of tiny shorts in Double Bay

Makeup free Rita Ora wears her favourite Janet Jackson tour T-shirt over a pair of tiny bike shorts as she steps out in Double Bay

Rita Ora pulled out an oldie but a goodie from her wardrobe on Thursday when she stepped out at the Double Bay food markets in Sydney.

The British international pop star, 32, rocked the same vintage Janet Jackson ‘Rhythm Nation 1990’ tour T-shirt she was first spotted wearing in 2016.

It was clearly the feature of her outfit while running errands, as she paired it with black shorts so tiny it looked like she was wearing nothing beneath her shirt. 

Rita completed the old-school look with a black designer handbag to which she attached a back-up claw clip for her long locks.

What to wear on a mountain bike ride: off-road cycle clothing guide

Comfort, weather conditions, protection and to some extent personal style determine what to wear for mountain biking.

In general, trail riders and downhill riders tend to opt for baggy kit consisting of loose-fitting shorts with a pair of padded Lycra shorts underneath and a similarly loose jersey, whereas more race-focused cross-country riders will often go full Lycra.

If you’re just starting out, the best kit is the kit you already have, but as you progress the chances are you’ll want clothing designed for the specific demands of mountain biking.

Ultimately, the choice is totally up to you, and you should wear whatever you feel comfortable in.

Where you ride and the time of year or season will have a significant impact on what you decide to wear. When the weather is warm and the trails (mostly) dry in the middle of summer, you’ll require less protection from the elements than

The Best Merino Wool Shirts of 2023

Merino wool is a pretty magical fabric. It’s lightweight, it wicks away moisture and odors, and it helps thermoregulate (that is, it’s breathable).

That being said, there are some tradeoffs for this wonder textile. It can be more fragile and less durable, both in wearing and washing, which is why we considered both 100% merino wool layers and merino wool blends (with a majority of merino greater than 60%).

It’s not easy to find that perfect, comfortable yet functional, fits-great, do-it-all layer, but merino comes pretty darn close.

We tested dozens of merino wool shirts to find the best on the market, wearing them in all kinds of conditions and pushing the shirt’s limits. Here are our staff’s favorite merino tees — as well as some honorable mentions.
