When a working woman yanks a pantsuit off the rack at Marshalls or TJ Maxx, she can -- if she thinks about it -- thank Yves Saint Laurent for the privilege. We, on the trickle-down side of Saint Laurent's haute couture, take his closet practicality for granted. But someone had to think of it and stitch it into suitable reality. The revered French designer, who announced his retirement on Monday, became a fashion star when he took over the House of Christian Dior at age 21. He went on to bring us the see-through blouse, the black leather jacket and safari chic, liberation on all fronts.

Those macho easy riders in their leathers and tattoos, roaring up the highway on their monster motorcycles, bound for who-knows-what adventures, have a way of making us mainstreamers feel so tame and mundane. But take heart. Even the most mild-mannered minivan drivers may own clothes, shoes or accessories inspired by biker gear -- and not even realize it. Motorcyclists have given us much more than the iconic black leather jacket. A window-shopping trip through any mall will uncover typical biker elements, such as chains and rivets, on everything from jeans to business suits to lingerie.

Q: I want to replace my black leather jacket that I wear day and evening. I have a great figure, and I love to show it off. This time I want something in an eye-catching color that is still versatile. Have you any suggestions?A: Consider red. It's the one strong color that stood out against spring and summer's pale pastels.Red actually serves as a neutral in a wardrobe, because it goes with every color. Donna Karan worked it very effectively against black and nude in her spring collection.
