STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Moto Remix

Sass is the spice of life, right? Well it should be for your wardrobe. Living in a college town shouldn’t force you to skimp on style. Stepping out of the box is what gets heads turning, especially when you’re wearing something you feel like a boss in.  Surprisingly enough, it’s extremely easy to add edge to your wardrobe with a few essential statement pieces. A moto jacket is one of them. A classic piece with a lot of personality, a moto jacket will give your closet a lot of cool with very little work.

The fit of moto jackets is particularly flattering and caters to many different body types in the way it hits at the waist and gives at the chest. This particular jacket gives a twist to the usual leather finish by using suede and a faux shearling lining instead. Paying attention to details like this can help take your statement pieces to the next level. For this look, the Fashionista paired this bold moto jacket with a couple basics that everyone should have in his or her closet. The fit of the boyfriend jeans offsets the structure of the moto and the stripes give contrast behind the jacket’s heavy black color. Her grunge style is carried through to her Converse and messy ponytail, keeping the look carefree but edgy. The true value of these statement pieces comes from their versatility. If she wants to switch the look to night, this Fashionista can swap out her boyfriend jeans for a black leather skirt and her Converse for Chelsea boots to go out and hit the town.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Be bold with your clothing choices. Having good basics such as denim and T-shirts is very important. But once you have a solid foundation, have fun adding flair to those pieces. Things like a bold jacket or a killer pair of heels can transform numerous outfits from mundane to show stopping.”
