The Moto Jacket

As fall is slowly creeping it’s way upon us, we now [unfortunately] have to start looking into transforming our wardrobe from summer (goodbye slinky tops & comfy shorts) and bring on some cooler fall clothing (hello tailored pants & over-sized sweaters). Among many of the upcoming trends we have to look forward to, the one I’m most excited about is the highly coveted moto jacket. Actually, I’m quite excited about a great motorcycle jacket every spring/fall because they never really go out of style! A great investment piece, and you know that it’s something you’ll hold onto for a while and not end up looking at it a couple of seasons down the road and think “I wore that??”.

Over-sized, tailored, cropped, leather, denim, cotton, the possibilities go on and on! It’s now just about finding the right one (or two, or three…) for you! I [surprisingly] don’t own any moto jackets at the moment, but I’m definitely on the hunt for one, especially seeing as how Montreal this summer looks like it’s unfortunately coming to an end soon :( Below, I’ve put together a few different styles for you to browse through. I’m personally really loving the 3.1 Phillip Lim, which one’s your favorite?

Do you own any moto jackets? Or are you on the hunt for one now? Well, Realists, it’s Friday! Which means tomorrow’s the weekend, and if you’re free, you’ve got a good few hours to start looking for one ;) Have a great Friday, a lovely weekend, happy shopping, and stay classy!

  1. Nice picks! I actually have a pink one that looks just like the Acne Studios one without the buckle on the bottom! Mine is F21 and was significantly cheaper lol! Great post!
