"Hello Motto"

  The underground scene inspired by Soho’s artistry vibe. This season fashion focuses on staple pieces, inspired by the urban London and chic Parisian city. The spotlight is shinning bright on this fall/winter signature piece, the biker jacket. Bad-girl fashion never dies; it just gets more refined. That’s why the one item in your wardrobe you should never over look is the motto biker jacket. 

The aggressive biker chic look has been around for years, getting wide attention with Brigitte Bardot making the leather jacket her must have accessory in the 1960s. The iconic motto jacket still smolders its latest and most elegant versatile piece to truly capture your fashion senses! It’s an investment, but one that will quickly prove its value. The secret is, to wear it correctly so it fits your most irresistible style.

 The Traditionalist: For those who prefer the classic look, with minimal hardware this jacket-goes with just about everything. The stand by of gritty jeans paired with sleek chic shades and a rock star attitude has this look glorified for being an instant classic. The context of the rocker-jeans look is certainly great for this standard black jacket. You can edge up this jacket by wearing all leather for a rougher feel to let your inner biker out! 

Tough Chic: Works best when either teamed with formal silhouettes, such as a tailored skirt, or worn with ultra feminine fabrics, like silk crepe de chine or a bold yellow dress.  The key is to choose accessories that dress up the look, such as girly open toe heels, or hard zippered boots. 

In Living Colour: A twist on the classic that can feel a bit more feminine when sported in vivid colour. Two unexpectedly versatile shades are burgundy and royal blue. This looks great when paired with tailored leggings or any other sharply tailored trouser. The trick is to avoid looking too much like Madonna on a moped in Desperately Seeking Susan.

Embellished: The rock-centric iteration here is for those who want to embrace the badass look full on. When in doubt all black just works! The pin up retro inspired appeal with the full black silhouette makes this hard look so youthful. When deciding the best way to showcase this style, ask yourself this important question, Is this cool enough to wear to a rock concert? Would a rock star wear this? Looking like you are with the band is defiantly not an easy look to pull off. You have to be very bold and break the rules when it comes to fashion to do this style justice.

Being daring can also work when your jacket is shinning with sex appeal! A gold jacket is luminous and romantic paired with a slit-to-there lace dress, worn as a skirt! You will defiantly turn heads both Chanel

There’s a fine line between trashy and chic, and unless you have your own biker gang to back you up when the critics come calling, don’t try to ride it out. When styled correctly, you can guarantee every fashionable woman in the room will be wondering why she didn’t think of that. The motto biker jacket when chosen wisely will stand the test of time!
