Fall Desert Fashions Give Athletic Swagger

King of the Road



J. EVERETTE PERRY

Athletic swagger and muted colors activate this season’s style cycle. The breathable fabrics and full cuts that dominate runways actually make fashion functional. Trends of golden denim and thinly woven flannels infiltrate fall’s wardrobe as easily as perfect weather inspires bike rides. Accent the look with a pair of sleek slip-ons, and ride off in style.

Double-faced woven Burberry Brit shirt at Saks Fifth Avenue, $275; cashmere and goose down-quilted vest by Brunello Cucinelli at Saks Fifth Avenue, $2,200; red leather Salvatore Ferragamo driving shoes at Saks Fifth Avenue, $495; stainless steel Nixon Tank watch at Saks Fifth Avenue, $425; autumn-colored J Brand jeans at Saks Fifth Avenue, $198; Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil by Bumble and Bumble at Sephora, $38; and red dirt-to-street bike by Giant at Palm Springs Cyclery, $875.
