Key Piece: The Moto Jacket


Just because we don’t actually drive a motorcycle doesn’t mean we won’t be jumping on the moto jacket trend! This key piece is at the top of our fall wishlist – it’s perfect for throwing on as a light topper on brisk days, and surprisingly versatile. Plus, it adds just the right amount of edge to our #ootd (outfit of the day in Instagram-speak). Who doesn’t want a little ‘bad girl’ in her wardrobe to sharpen things up a bit?

Here’s a look at two ways we’ll be rocking this piece: 

Thursday morning @10:30am for a meeting at the bank: When it comes to meetings and appointments, sometimes you want to feel ‘done’, without being too ‘done up’. The moto jacket makes a great stand-in for the classic blazer and instantly adds a feeling of modern luxe to your style. Simple boot cut jeans and a flowy top keep you in your comfort zone, while the jacket takes you into the style zone.

Saturday evening @8pm for dinner with the girls at earls: We love any excuse to get dressed up and hang with our besties for dinner, drinks, and plenty of gal talk. This fun and colourful minidress from BCBGMAXAZRIA is a standout next to the quilted leather of the jacket and sleek sheen of the heels. Just try to find a pretty dress that doesn’t look fabulous with the moto jacket…bet you can’t!
