Moto Jacket Madness

Moto Jacket Perfection
Motorcycle jackets were a noticeable piece of outerwear for Europeans last year. The trend has already landed stateside and seems to be a keeper for spring.

A motorcycle jacket provides an edgy accent to a neutral travel wardrobe. It is a versatile piece that complements travel dresses as easily as it does jeans. The jacket transitions easily from daytime sightseeing to evening activities effortlessly. This provides a stylish option for spring travel outerwear, a great piece for those “in between” weather days.

There are different styles to choose from, from biker accents to cropped styles. The key is to keep the shape fitted to the body, but still comfortably accommodating thin sweaters or any other layers. A nipped in waist keeps the look flattering and feminine. Avoid a boxy cut.

Select a color that blends in or complements neutral colored travel clothes. Black leather will add texture to black travel separates and help break up all black ensembles.

Black is not your only color option. Neutrals such as tan, brown, or gray offer more of a luxe and less tough girl vibe. Metallic leathers are also a trendy option.

Many European girls paired the jacket with skinny jeans. Topping off with a scarf is optional, if you want to show off the lines or details of the jacket forego the scarf. However, sometimes a scarf can lend some softness to the look. I love the contrast of feminine pieces such as dresses, scarves, or skirts with leather jackets.

The motorcycle or leather jacket look works on a variety of age ranges so don’t be afraid to try the look. Faux leather options can get you in on the trend without a big cash commitment.

The trend was so prevalent in Europe that I’ve got many photos, so check them out and get some inspiration.
