You would be hard pressed to find a girl who didn’t look good in a moto jacket. Even the most prim and proper of Fashionistas could wear one atop their full A-line skirts and delicate blouses to add a dash of spice to their look. Yet, their go-with-everything nature leads to overexposure and their novelty is often lost. So, how do you update a basic moto jacket this fall? Dip it in the color of the season, oxblood, as today’s Fashionista did.
Done in suede and finished with quilted shoulders, this Fashionista shows us how to wear a statement piece that’s not over the top and distracting. These intricacies coupled with the on-trend color are what make her jacket different from what we’ve seen in previous seasons—it goes beyond your standard zips and studs.
This Fashionista wears her oxblood jacket with a nude knit sweater and transitions her summertime high-waisted shorts to fall with a pair of tights underneath. Staying on top of the cowgirl-chic trend started by Isabel Marant’s fall 2012 collection, she wears a pair of western-inspired ankle booties. She also adorns her neck with enough turquoise jewelry to catch one’s eye, but luckily not enough to create a controversy like Karlie Kloss’ Native American ensemble at the Victoria’s Secret fashion show.
To channel this Fashionista’s look, try out AllSaints’ Oxblood Biker Jacket and pair it with Topshop’s Knitted Step Hem Jumper. Use oxblood to transform other fall closet staples and accessories as well, like jacquard pants, snoods and doctors’ bags.
