The Art of the Motorcycle Jacket

I love how a sleek, structured leather or (faux) jacket can make an outfit go from, “This looks nice,” to “This is hot- why didn’t I think to pair these together before?!”

My favorite style is, and always will be, the motorcycle/biker jacket. During the summer, I opt for light leather cardigans by BB Dakota or Blank NYC,  but sometimes  a structured leather jacket brings another dimension of chic.

Styles can range from $200 to insanely expensive. Keep it chic and don’t break your bank with options from your favorite fast fashion retailers. If you shop for your jacket now, most likely you will save by purchasing off season. If you wait until September you will see prices go back up.

My current obsession is this version from Zara. I have the leather version  which was under $200. The faux leather version is $100 and is perfect to layer over a silk dress or on top of your little black dress.  Zara is having a major sale now, and it’s worth checking out.


Nordstrom is having their  #AnniversarySale. This version by Blank NYC “Easy Rider” for $64.90 is a no brainer. Make it a staple in your closet.


If you are looking to invest, All Saints has an entire online section dedicated to the leather jacket which makes it extremely convenient to peruse. This version for $650 is very similar to Zara’s, sans the leather buckles and with the addition of a collar.
