I believe it a matter for the individual to judge what they consider is appropriate.

TfL offers advice to cyclists about suitable clothing. This is part of a wider safety tips campaign that has been developed to educate both audiences about the key causes of collisions between motorists and cyclists, and explains the reasons why drivers and cyclists behave in the way they do.
