Biker jackets evoke imagery of black leather, hard edges, and sharp studs. But you don’t have to go over the edge to look sharp in a biker jacket. The keys to wearing a biker jacket elegantly are twofold: (1) pick the right jacket (sleek, minimal), and (2) dress up the rest of the look with sophisticated pieces with chic details. Here’s how to wear a biker jacket elegantly:
1. Start with a simple, sophisticated base: grey cords (or grey jeans) and a tie-neck knit top. We love the mix of muted colors between these two pieces.
2. Layer on the elegant biker jacket. Note the subtle cream color, the slim fit, and the understated detailing.
3. Finish off the look with standout accessories: a pair of tall grey boots to tuck your grey cords into (the combo creates a long, lean look) and a cheery bright yellow clutch for a burst of color.
