Layering is by far one of the best things about fashion in the colder seasons. For college students especially, the layer that is most often seen is the jacket. This Fashionista caught my eye sticking out of the usual outerwear crowd by sporting a very practical motorcycle-style wool jacket while walking around town. Creating a variety in your coat collection over the years is a must, and a motorcycle jacket is a great investment piece.
This Fashionista found her great jacket at Urban Outfitters for a very reasonable price. If you wanti to make a long term investment, you could find great leather motorcycle jackets at Asos or Levi’s in fun colors. For a much cheaper price, you can look into a jacket similar to these at Forever 21.
Whether it’s paired with a slim black dress and some lace-up booties like this Fashionista for a night out or with a pair of jeans and boots, a motorcycle jacket is a great spin-off on a leather or wool jacket. Try experimenting with a cheaper, lightweight motorcycle style at first, and if you find yourself wearing it often, then consider a long-term investment for next season!
