Today, I wanted to share with you one of my all time favorite pieces to create a layered look: the moto jacket. The moto jacket (short for motorcycle jacket for those of you who didn’t know) is a stylish staple to any ensemble. It is a classic and one of the many reasons you can find them at department stores,trendy shops, and even local boutiques. The fit for a moto jacket is the most important! Make sure that it is not too short in the sleeves or it cuts off your body. The moto jacket is one that will probably take up precious real estate in you closet for a number of years. Try and go for a neutral that you can mix and match endlessly, and maybe try and stay away from a very trendy moto jacket. If you have a great one already, by all means, trend away. But if you are buying your very first one, go for a classic.
What I look for when choosing a moto jacket is a zipper detailing. Nothing says biker like buttoning or zippers. It stays true to the idea of the jacket and also accessorizes a bit. Finding the perfect moto jacket can be a bit puzzling at first, but always keep you body type in mind. Look at the jackets that already work for you and try and find a similar cut in a moto. My very first moto jacket was the classic black leather. What I like about this one, however, is that it has a softer feel. It is amazingly comfortable, but still thick enough to keep me warm on those chilly Spring evenings. This is currently my fave because I can easily pair it with my spring-time pastels !
