Autumn has finally arrived and while you may have to pack up your summer shorts and sneakers, you can still look just as chic on the road rocking this season’s warm and cozy trends. Cyclists can agree — colder temperatures and unpredictable rain and wind do not create the most glamorous setting for a bike ride. But, with the proper gear — and our styling direction — your outfit can be both functional and fashionable. We’ve rounded up our favorite Fall looks in hopes of inspiring your bike style this season.
Don’t let a little wet weather cramp your style. Stay dry with some water-resistant gear, like these classic Hunter rain boots and faux-leather jeans from Old Navy. Military garb is trending big for Fall, so try adding some combat-inspired attire to your closet, like this olive green parka from Zara. Its fur-trimmed hood and long, leather sleeves are ideal for unexpected showers. Leopard print is also making a comeback this season, and thanks to this adorable helmet designed by Sawako Furuno, you’ll be cruising through Autumn safely and chicly.
From camouflaged backpacks to Dr. Marten work boots, Fall’s biggest trends have also found their way on to men’s shopping lists this season. For starters, a durable (and preferably dapper) coat is essential for any commuter cyclist. This waxed cotton anorak from H&M is the perfect addition to your fall wardrobe — not only is it reversible, but it’s also built with a concealed pocket in the front, so you can tuck away your most prized possessions (read: your smartphone). Oh, and about those dreaded puddles and potentially soaked pants — Levi’s is already on it. Their line of commuter jeans are treated with a special water-less solution that will prevent bikers from having a drenched fashion disaster.
