How to Pull off Motorcycle Gear in a Fashionable Way
I do not own a motorcycle but do have this awesome moto jacket! And I know that jackets like this one are more functional than stylish, but who said you can’t wear it with a fashion motive? All jackets and coats are inspired by gear and uniforms nowadays anyways, so why not skip the overpriced replicas and just wear the real deal?!
Here are a few tips on pulling off a gear piece like this one:
1. WEAR HEELS - Wearing any jacket with a pair of heels definitely makes your entire outfit more fashionable because, let's admit, anything looks good on tall people! If you’re going for a more casual look or don’t wear heels very often, then sneakers or combat boots will do it!
2. CHOOSE BLACK – Black is a naturally tough and edgy color, so it instantly makes the rest of the outfit look more stylish and mature. Plus, black is also very versatile, so it can look good with any other color you choose to wear it over.
3. IT’S ALL ABOUT THE BALANCE – Most moto jackets are usually over-sized (like puffers) and tend to make you look more masculine, so keep the rest of your outfit more fit to give it a more of a contemporary feel.
4. DETAILS MATTER – Over-sized jackets are most flattering when they can show off your figure, so details like lace-up sides and belts can often help define that.
Alright, now I am off to find a bike to go with my jacket! :)
