Coats and Jackets
Coats and jackets have long been a favourite wardrobe item of mine. My collection is rather large and includes winter coats, faux fur, a Yukon parka, jean jackets, trenches, suede, and my leather jacket, which is one of my most prized possessions. If you challenged me to pick a favourite style I think I would have to go with moto jackets for a few different reasons. They are versatile, a bit edgy, and suit my body type – I have long legs and a short torso. Moto jackets hit at just the right spot near my waist.
Moto jackets are inspired by motorcyle wear. They are cropped in length, usually hitting at about the waist or top of the hips. They can be worn open or zipped closed and often have lots of details like buckles at the waist and chunky hardware. Moto jackets can be made from lots of different materials including leather, suede, and wool.
My collection of moto jackets
There are currently three in my collection. My beloved leather jacket that I purchased from Artizia last spring, a beautiful burgundy suede jacket that was a Christmas gift from Mr. P&P, and a boiled wool version that I purchased about six years ago from Simons and rediscovered this spring.
Moto jackets are incredibly versatile. They can be styled casually with jeans and a tee shirt, thrown over a fancy dress to create a more casual vibe, and worn with business casual outfits for the office. I wear mine during the week for work and on the weekends for casual activities and errands. I’ve pulled a few outfits from Pinterest for inspiration.
So tell me true kittens, are you a moto jacket girl like me or are you drawn to other styles? Get the look:
