Whether you own a cool motorcycle or just want to look like you do, the moto-chic trend is all-the-rage in fashion. There are ways to embrace the trend without decking yourself out from head to toe in a bandanna, embroidered leather jacket, chaps and spiked boots. The modern moto trend is about combining edgy with sophisticated for an unexpected and unique look.
Arguably the easiest way to jump on the moto-chic bandwagon is to purchase a moto-style jacket. Whether you like the look of leather or prefer a vegan-friendly option, a classic moto jacket adds an instant edginess to any outfit. When it comes to style, many women like the newest cropped jackets with wide wing-style collars. These jackets often have an asymmetrical zip front and stud detailing. Men look modern and edgy in a classic leather bomber jacket. You can often find good quality moto jackets at motorcycle apparel shops.
You can pair these jackets with a simple white t-shirt and jeans for a timeless look. Women can take this look from casual to sophisticated in an instant by pairing it with a pair of classic point-toe stilettos. Men will look refined when pairing a moto jacket with a pair of leather brogue or lace-up Oxford shoes.
Classic moto boots feature a low block heel with belt or stud details. They may zip up on the side or feature a pull-on style. They have a low profile, often hitting just above the ankle. The slightly rounded toe on these boots makes them the perfect style for virtually any outfit pairing. For a boho-chic look that mixes feminine with edgy, throw on a floral sundress with a pair of moto boots. Hipster may love the look of a moto boot with a classic pair of corduroy pants and a buffalo-plaid Oxford shirt.
The modern moto trend has been recurring for several seasons. Fashion experts are now defining the moto boot and jacket as signature staples that every man and woman should incorporate into their existing wardrobes. The key to nailing this look is to pair edgy pieces with casual or sophisticated apparel.
