Edgy punk aesthetics have been a major theme throughout this whole season and this latest fall trend is another perfectly punkish accent to your ensembles…that’s right we are speaking about the fabulously chic moto (motorcycle) jacket.  Moto jackets are the perfect way to add a fun and edgy vibe into your wardrobe this fall. They are super versatile and chic enough to function in both the work and play environment.

Designers were all over the moto jacket trend this season with some of our favorites like 3.1 Phillip Lim, Altuzarra, Jason Wu and Zara all showing classic black leather moto jackets with silver zippered accents. While in a refreshing twist Versace went bright and bold with fire engine red moto jackets with that classic zippered touch. J Mendel was another designer who strayed from the classic biker look, opting to show color blocked black and oxblood moto jackets on the runway that were just perfect for fall.  There seem to be two clear divisions when it comes to wearing the moto jacket trend this season, so pick one…or both if you’re feeling especially chic!

The Classic Black Moto Jacket
This season the classic black moto jacket is a jack of all trades. You can pair it with a sleek pencil skirt and classic pumps for an edgy fall work ensemble or soften things up with the addition of a slightly fluted skirt. Another great and classic way to rock your black moto jacket would be to pair it with simple black skinnies and a white t-shirt, the monochrome color scheme is the utmost in chic and effortless sophistication.

The Bold Color Moto Jacket
Moto jackets in rich fall hues are an excellent way to perk up your autumn wardrobe. Look for lux jade, deep oxbloods, brilliant jewel tones or even creamy smooth camel. Pair your colored moto jacket with a simple black leather skirt or dark wash jeans for a look that’s not only über chic but edgy and fresh as well.
