Style Advice of the Week

Once an item associated with Fonzie and “The Greaser” subculture, this jacket has made its way to chic boutiques as a classic staple to make any outfit look a bit more edgy. I spotted this Fashionista wearing this gorgeous motorcycle jacket on top of a black dress. To bring some spring in the mix, she made sure to accessorize with bright spring colors such as her orange handbag and turquoise colored accessories.

I really admire the motorcycle jacket because you can wear it with a variety of different outfits. You can follow this Fashionista’s example by wearing it on top of a dress. You could also wear it with a T-Shirt and skirt, a blouse and skinny jeans or a T-shirt and cropped shorts. The possibilities are endless when it comes to this useful and versatile item.

Another thing that I love about these jackets is that you can wear them anytime of the year. For spring, it’s all about bright colors and even though the moto jacket may not be the brightest of the bunch, you can still accessorize with spring accessories like this Fashionista has done. If you’re like me and the majority of your closet is filled with black, you may want to change it up a bit and look for other great colors in this style like red, white, pastel pink or tan.

While looking for a moto jacket, you may want to consider the material that was used to make the jacket. You can find some very nice quality jackets online that are made of genuine leather, which not only smell like the heavens, but it will last you FOREVER. As well, you can find jackets that are a little more on the college student budget side; even though some are not entirely made of authentic leather (for example, faux-leather blends) they are equally just as cute to throw onto any outfit. Moto jackets are also bound to look fabulous whether you wear it during the day or night, you can dress them down or up depending on the occasion.

My style advice of the week is, if you haven’t already, to browse for this year’s favorite jacket. You will not regret this long lasting and fabulously chic touch. They’re great additions to day or night outfits and it’s most definitely a piece that will never go out of style.
