It’s time for the next installment of my wardrobe staples series and this time around, let’s talk about the moto jacket. Once an iconic symbol of rebellion, the moto jacket is a mainstream wardrobe basic now, but it still packs a bit of an edgy punch.
I remember my first moto jacket; it was faux leather, black with brass rivets and zippers. My friends at the time told me silver was cooler, but I wanted the brass to match my golden hair and my little gold Fiero! Anyway, flash forward a million years (oh okay, like 30) and a moto jacket is still a wardrobe staple and something I don’t think I’ve actually ever NOT had in my wardrobe since that first one so long ago.
I have several motos in my wardrobe right now, but my absolute favorite is this Rosa Biker Jacket from Topshop (at Nordstrom). For a very affordable price, it looks and feels expensive!
Motos are super versatile and will add a touch of edge to any look. I really can’t think of anything that a moto wouldn’t look good with …. jeans and sneakers, check … a pretty dress, check …. trousers, check …well you get the idea!!
Here’s a look back at a few of my moto jacket looks in the blog:

So, what do you think, Dolls? Is a moto jacket a wardrobe must have or no? Do you prefer your moto in basic black leather. or something else? Can you think of anything a moto wouldn’t look chic with? No really, I’m curious ….!! Can you? Leave me a comment!
