11 Ways to Rock a Moto Jacket


Motocycle, or moto, jackets are a way to add a pop of edginess into your new wardrobe. These jackets are a fantastic spring trend because they provide an easy way to transition from day to night. With a moto jacket, you can make any outfit stand out. Take a look at 11 ways you can style this jacket to make it work for you!

1. Get Futuristic

Try a silver moto jacket for a modern, robot-chic vibe. Our faves? Forever 21’s Futuristic Moto Jacket ($39.80) or Nasty Gal’s UNIF Gamma Ray Moto Jacket ($178). These jackets would go perfectly with a basic gray T-shirt and a pair of skinny jeans. Keep the rest of your outfit as downplayed as possible; the shiny material on the jacket is bold enough!

2. Grunge it Up

Nothing says “on-trend” like a little ‘90s flashback! Create this look by layering a plaid shirt under your moto jacket. Don’t forget to add some ripped jeans for emphasis. You’re a total ‘90s baby.

3. Make it Dressy

Moto jackets come in all different shapes and sizes. Some moto jackets resemble blazers—which are great for making outfits look more professional. For this look, go for this Tart Kailani Jacket ($180). Pair this jacket with a colored dress shirt and black dress pants and you’ll definitely be office-ready for your internship.

4. Chambray Chic

Remember when we told you all about chambray? Well, you can definitely add chambray to your moto-jacket look too! Try wearing a cute, short-sleeve chambray top with a black skirt and a black moto jacket.

5. Sparkle and Shine

We all love to get a bit sparkly at times! The best way to pull this off? Find the perfect sparkly top to go underneath a black moto jacket. The brighter your top, the better! Our personal favorite is this Like Magic Iridescent White Sequin top from LuLu*s ($54). Don’t miss your opportunity to shine bright like a diamond.

6. Play with Patterns

Moto jackets come in a ton of different patterns, so don’t be afraid to get a little wild! Use this Rebecca Taylor Leo Jacquard Moto Jacket from Zappos ($212.99) as your statement piece for your outfit and you’re golden. If you’re nervous about wearing such a bold jacket, stick with a black moto jacket and add a fun, printed top or pair of pants. Check out our article on seven ways to wear leopard print for ideas.

7. Two-Toned Goddess

Sometimes one color just isn’t enough! Try this Two-Tone Faux Leather Moto Jacket ($39.99). This jacket has so many color combinations that you’re bound to find one you’ll love! No need to go crazy with the rest of your outfit; let this bold jacket do the talking.

8. All About Boho

Do you love the boho-chic look? Try this out: pair a moto jacket with a flowy maxi skirt. Other great accessories to include? Headbands are the perfect accessory for the boho girl in you! There are so many headbands on sites like Etsy that would go well with this outfit. RaydiantApparel has plenty of bohemian-inspired creations that, for the most part, cost less than $10!

9. Graphic Tees for the Win

Show your geeky side by pairing your favorite moto jacket with a cutesy graphic tee! Graphic tees are a great way to add a pop of personality into any outfit, and wearing one with a moto jacket and a pair of skinny jeans is an easy daytime outfit.

10. Make it Pop

Use your moto jacket as a pop of color for your ensemble! This Cropped Faux Leather Moto Jacket from Charlotte Russe ($38.99) would look great with a tank top and a black skater skirt. It’s just color you need to make your outfit stand out!

11. Lovely Lace

Lace and leather (or faux leather) is a perfect girly-sweet combo. Try a lace dress with a moto jacket for a fun mix of styles. The moto jacket will tone down the formality of the dress.
