The biker jacket is back on the fashion radar. It's been part of high fashion trends for awhile, but it's now in full effect for mainstream trends so we're seeing them at every price point. There are a few golden rules to wearing a motorcycle jacket with ease:
- Go for contrast. If you aren't sure how to wear a motorcycle jacket or you're under the impression that you need a lot of edgy clothes to go with this style of jacket, rest-assured juxtaposition goes a long way. Use the motorcycle jacket to anchor frothy looks from summer such as light-colored dresses or ultra feminine fabrics like silk or chiffon.
- Use the jacket to pull it together. We love a motorcycle as a topper for a simple tee or lightweight sweater and skinny jeans or pants. This creates a chic, cool look that takes seconds to put together and allows you to utilize almost everything you already have in your closet.
- Make sure it fits. The jacket should be roomy enough to wear a sweater underneath (or to lightly layered), but gently skim your figure. If you have issues finding jackets that fit well, consider a knit version of the motorcycle jacket. A knit jacket is easier to fit (especially when buying online) through the shoulders and arms and ideal if you want to wear the jacket all day over a sleeveless dress or top.
