Moto Jackets: “Embrace your feminine edge!”

I’ve long been a fan of moto jackets. I love the urbanite look it creates, and it also adds a little bit of edgy into your day-to-day wardrobe, wouldn’t you agree? My biker jacket has an asymmetrical front, and sharp zipper details which I very much adore.

I bought this jacket not too long ago when I discovered that my former moto jacket (see this post here) was ruined by one of my dogs, Cali. She actually chew the zippers off! She did that when we literally left the house for about 15min… Story of my life. I was a bit upset — but how can you really stay mad at a dog as they watch you with those BIG puppy eyes? Yep, it’s impossible! I got a new one instead and cuddled Cali, as always.

Now back to this jacket, and how I like to style them. I personally like to play with different fabric textures. For instance, I’m wearing a corduroy front-button skirt paired with my leather moto jacket. It creates a different look and it embraces my feminine edge at the same time. I also like to play with the silhouette. My motorcycle jacket ends at my natural waist, which makes them perfect for wearing them with skirts, dresses and pants.

How about you? How do you style your moto jackets? Let me know by commenting below!

As always, thanks much for reading & have a fabulous Wednesday!

Much love.

    This is a beautiful color. Is it blue? In love those jackets. I wore mine on several posts on my blog. I love to wear it with dresses.

    Love these styling tips, beautiful! Agreed that a moto jacket adds the perfect amount of edge. I’m guilty of wearing them over half the week – especially during spring!

    I love moto jackets- they are so timeless and can add such an instant edge to any look 🙂 You’ve styled yours so perfectly with the corduroy skirt.

    What a cute moto jacket, Vanessa! I can’t believe your puppy chewed the zippers! You are right, it’s so hard to stay mad at them with those big puppy eyes. This looks like a great replacement too. Love it paired with the button up the front skirt!

    Oh nooo! So sad to hear that Cali chewed the zippers off! 🙁 And what if you replace those zippers? Luckily you have a new jacket now! You look fabulous as always and I love how you styled it with a front button skirt! I love moto jackets too and I’d usually pair it with a simple pair of black skinnies or culottes 🙂

    Hope you are having an amazing week so far! xoxo Vivian

    you already know I live for motto jackets!! I like the ones that hug your figure instead of just hanging on you. I love this outfit by the way! super cute and I agree feminine outfits with a bit of edge are one of the best type of styles!

    I cannot believe she chewed the zippers! Totally something mine would do. I love moto jackets too, and this looks great with your suede skirt.

    Love your blog so much, Vanessa! You are such an inspiration to me! The moto jacket is on point! Great styling!

    Loving this look, Vanessa! I’ve never tried wearing my moto jacket with corduroy before, it looks great, you’ve definitely inspired me! I love how you pointed out that your jacket falls at your natural waist, making it perfect for wearing it with dresses and skirts, very helpful to consider! I have the same issue with my cat, Judah. He is SO mischievous and always doing something he shouldn’t be and everyone says it’s my fault because when anyone tries to reprimand him, I end up feeling bad and give him way too much attention, haha! In fact, he listens to everyone except me! Whenever I try to tell him no, he just looks at me, like yeah right, mom! You know you love me even though…He’s gotten to a few of my fave pieces as well 🙁 BUT, it’s always a good excuse to go shopping, right?! 😉 Thanks so much for sharing, beautiful, and I hope you’re having the best star to your day so far!

    I am such a fan of the styling here Vanessa! That skirt is adorable and those booties are SUCH a great find!

    I love a good moto jacket and yours is perfect! I love how you’ve styled it from head to toe.
    My dogs love getting into things too…together they chewed up a vintage beaded necklace that I had picked up at vintage sale…I was super upset at first but it’s hard to stay mad at

    Oh wow, its warm enough in Chicago not to wear tights/leggings! Loving your biker jacket and that gold zip detail! I love biker jackets but they dont love me, in terms of fit etc….tsigh…plus I prefer to wear long jackets…but i do love going to vintage stores and seeing the selection of biker jackets….Grease, West Side Story etc, they helped to make the look iconic! Have a good day Bella! Xx Ps that skirt looks sooooo good on you!

    You look great V. O love your moto jacket and love how you styled it. I usually wear my moto jacket with different styles. I love to play with how I style it everytime I wear it.
    PS, you wouldn’t show us CALI anytime soon, would you?

  28. March 10, 2016 / 12:49 PM

    Am sorry for what Cali did but you were able to buy a better jacket in my opinion so you should actually thank him. I love your leather jacket, it is so edgy and so chic. You have styled it to perfection and the suede skirt is giving me life! You look flawless!!

  29. March 10, 2016 / 3:00 PM

    I love moto jackets and want to get one in brown and red colors as they could be styled literally with everything! Loving the added bandana such a wonderful addition to your outfit!

  30. March 10, 2016 / 7:29 PM

    I can see why you love moto jackets so much…they look absolutely amazing on you!! Lovely look!

    Your styling I always spot on! Love this look! Moto jackets are definitely a must-have! Wishing you a great weekend beautiful!

  32. March 10, 2016 / 10:48 PM

    I think you did an awesome job styling this moto jacket!! I really adore the skirt!!
    Usually, when I wear moto jackets, I love styling them with jeans and heeled boots or pumps.
    Though, today, since the weather was cool, not cold, I was wearing a graphic tee, a zippered hoody, leggings, sneakers…and a moto jacket.

    I don’t think I’ve ever worn a moto jacket with a skirt, how odd is that 🙂 I didn’t set out to intentionally not wear skirts but I suppose whenever I had a jacket on, I forgot skirts existed GRIN beyond the obvious beauty of these colours, I love that your skirt is corduroy. So unexpected xo

    p/s if you have a second, babe, I hope you’ll come join my link-up, it’d be lovely to have you 🙂

  34. March 11, 2016 / 1:17 PM

    I love this jacket, especially the sleeves and how you styled it with the skirt! You look awesome! When my dog was a puppy she chewed up some of my expensive heels and a wallet. You’re so’s impossible to stay mad at our cuddly babies!

  35. March 12, 2016 / 2:20 PM

    I love this outfit! Especially those sunnies! Mixing textures in my outfit is my favorite thing to do as well.
