If you live in a place that has both winter and fall season, then a moto jacket will always be your favourite fashion staple for the cold weather.

For the first style, I want to create a combo of girly and edgy by styling a very cool pink moto jacket. Although moto jacket are always connected with boyish, rocker vibe, with a touch of pink, the tomboy-ish aura will disappear instantly and it changes to the word rock-chic. So the next time you find colored leather jacket, buy it! If you are not sure on how to wear it, you can use this idea to inspire you.
A pink moto jacket obviously screams feminine more than tough, making it the perfect addition to your favourite unique dress. And, a moto jacket is also the perfect piece to help your summer dresses transition into fall. On this styling idea, I threw the pink moto jacket over a very cute blue dress. The color combo is just amazing and the dress also balances out the tough look. The combination is a genius balance of masculine and feminine.
You can wear the look with a pair of sneakers or you can also swap them out for a pair of platform shoes or boots when the weather gets really chilly. Make sure that your footwear have a touch of tough feel to them, because an overly girly shoes won’t work for this look. Add some accessories like a bunch of rings and you can opt for a clutch bag which can round out the ensemble to be very polished.
This look is a great option for a night out with your friends. They will be very impressed by how you can balance out the girly dress and the masculine jacket with colors and layering. Applying nail polish and lipstick will also score you an extra point!

Girls, before we move on to the second style, I want you remember this: The key to wearing a moto jacket is “contrast”. Like in the first style above, a tough looking jacket will look good if it’s soft colored and paired with feminine silhouette, and vice versa. A usual and minimal black leather jacket will look great with masculine pieces, just like the style that I am going to give you now.
This second style is amazing and perfect for kicking around the weekend. A black textured moto jacket that fits your style best can casually be thrown over a white crop top. The contrast in this context will also work with colors. Monochromatic will always look great for styling the moto jacket. I love how the casual crop top is toughen up by the minimalist leather jacket.
Then I combined the top with a pair of grey cigarette trouser and also a pair of fringed loafers, which are casual yet polished at the same time. Can you see that the moto jacket helps this ensemble to look like a thouroughly planned out outfit? Because I do. And if you feel like this whole outfit is too masculine, you can always add girly accessories to it. It’s all about balancing, girls. Wear your simple and pretty earrings and you can even wear colorful bag to finish off this look. It’s comfortable and stylish!
So, are you excited to wear your moto jacket this season? If you haven’t got one, buy it! Think long about your personal style and try to find the perfect moto jacket that fits you and your style best. This fashion piece is timeless and versatile, so you can wear it for years to come.
