I know August just arrived, and it seems too early to be thinking about jackets of any sort, but it is actually the perfect time to take advantage of “back to school” sales for fall fashion, even if you haven’t been a student for a while 🙂
I am a proponent of investing in quality wardrobe staples, but I also know that not everyone gets as much wear out of moto jackets as I do. If you are looking for an inexpensive way to try the style, this simple faux leather version from Forever 21+ is a great place to start. Even better, it is currently on sale for $20! Snap it up right away if you like it – jacket steals like this tend to go fast.
Once you have a moto jacket, the styling possibilities are pretty much endless. Wear it with dark skinny jeans and a bold color top (perfectly on-trend for fall) to keep it classic yet eye catching. Layer it over a flowy top, cutoffs, and booties for a late summer festival look. Swap it for your blazer after work to add some edge to your office-ready shift dress for happy hour. When holiday parties roll around, toss it over a sparkly dress worn with metallic strappy heels to keep the tried and true combination from being ho-hum. There are SO many ways to wear a good moto jacket – it just makes sense to have one on hand 😉
Do you have a moto jacket of your own? Is this a piece you’d rather invest in? Let me know in the comments!
