Trend Alert: Motorcycle Jackets

November 19th, 2009


The motorcycle jacket: this masculine favorite has fully made its way into the heart of womens’ closets.  Why?  There’s just something about a woman in a motorcycle jacket - the combination of hard and soft, masculine and feminine is just irresistible.  We love pairing this versatile jacket with everything from jeans and a tee (a la James Dean) to flowery dresses, for a biker gang meets garden party look.  Here’s our five favorite motorcycle jackets:

Clockwise, from top left:
Silence & Noise Faux Leather Moto Jacket | $98 at Urban Outfitters
Outfit yourself in a jacket that manages to be edgy and cooly classic, all at once.  

Wool Blend Motorcycle Jacket | $42.90 at Heritage 1981
Combine the motorcycle jacket trend with one of the biggest textile trends of the season, plaid, for a statement jacket that you won’t want to go without.

Nom De Plume YaYa Moto Jacket | $58 at Urban Outfitters
A pretty pale aqua color adds a feminine touch to a masculine favorite.

Wool Motorcycle Jacket | $150 at Martin + Osa
Motorcycle jackets don’t have to be (faux) leather.  We love the sleek, clean look of this charcoal wool jacket.  Isn’t that collar to die for?

Stella Denim Jacket | $24.80 at Forever 21
Not just another jean jacket.  This dark denim motorcycle jacket looks lovely with feminine skirts and dresses.

    Fab picks! I’ve got a knit moto jacket that has already gotten TONS of use this season, and will no doubt take me through winter.

    One of my favorite denim jackets is from Christopher and Banks, and it is a collar-type of moto jacket, not in the F21 style; amazing.
