STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Motorcycle Jacket Madness

The motorcycle leather jacket is still in! Turn your overly feminine New Years party outfit into a fierce and edgy look by adding a leather jacket. It’s a perfect party wear piece, especially for layering. Also, it is still a major trend on the rise.

The motorcycle jacket is a great option for switching up a feminine wardrobe to ring in the New Year and a new self. However, it’s not just for holiday celebrations. Since we are in the brink of winter, a night out on the town can ruin an outfit. If a huge puffy jacket is hindering your style, try a motorcycle jacket to spice things up; it adds warmth without the bulk.

The thing I love most about motorcycle jackets is that they are such versatile pieces. It doesn’t have to be paired with just leather pants and boots. I like to think of the motorcycle jacket as an edgy replacement to a cardigan. Throw it on over a chic blouse, wear it with a dress or even try a turtleneck underneath with a bold statement necklace.

Motorcycle jackets come in numerous styles and have been flooding major stores like Forever 21 and Abercrombie & Fitch, at great prices, too. So shop around and see what style and color works best for you.

The look that this Fashionista created was centered on this trend. She took this awesome motorcycle jacket from Forever 21 and built a beautiful crisp holiday look out of it. She wanted to keep the palette of this outfit quite monochromatic with the color black and she also added a bold statement necklace, since it was more of a party look. This Fashionista also chose a simple clutch that could be carried around all-night without the bulk. Since the jacket and necklace added a lot to the outfit, she said she decided to go with a simple little black dress, which I know many of us already have in our closets. She completed her look with a great pair of heels that are fit for any celebration.
