There are few things I love more than a simple, versatile jacket that can be taken from day to night with ease. One of my most favourite items in my closet - a moto leather jacket that I bought from H&M (when I was in London a few seasons ago) —does just that.
In my view, it doesn’t matter if we’re 50+ years old- it’s never too old to own and wear a moto leather jacket. No single item of clothing screams "style essential" like a moto leather jacket. A really great moto leather jacket is the type of piece we can have in our closet forever. It is an essential staple that goes with almost anything, and is agelessly chic. It is dependable and transcends time, trends and travel.
Here are seven ways I like to rock my H&M moto leather jacket.....
1. ELEGANT ANDROGYNY
This look is my most favourite because it allows me to look and feel put together without having to sacrifice comfort and ease as an entrepreneur. Also it’s perfect for the inevitable unanticipated meeting and adventurous day. I chose to pair the moto leather jacket with a knitted top with faux fur collar, and a cool hat for a look that’s more modern than retro.
2. THE DIVINE STRIPES
If there’s a single closet staple everyone should own, it’s the plain black cashmere knitted top. It can be dressed up, dressed down, and coordinated with most bottoms. To spice up the look a bit, I chose to pair the top and the jacket with H&M black and white striped wide-leg pants.
3. MORE STRIPE POWER
To dress my striped pants up a bit, I topped it off with a long black dress. The front of the dress is shorter than the back, which makes for an interesting and flirty look.
4. THE ART OF HIGH LOW HEM
This uneven high-low hem dress speaks volumes on its own, so I kept the rest of the outfit simple. A black jersey knit turtleneck top adds maximum comfort on a very cold day. Here, a moto leather jacket, a black turtle neck top, a high-low hem dress, a fedora hat and long leather boots mix to form a just-dressy-enough outfit.
5. SWITCHING IT UP
This one was a little bit of a style risk, because it is fun and frivolous. I stretched the versatility of the the uneven high-low hem dress by adding my favourite white shirt over it and added a pair of short boots to complete the look.
6. SIMPLE SOPHISTICATION
I feel so sophisticated every time I wear this silk long dress with my moto leather jacket. They pair so well together. Add a pair of heels or wedges to complete the evening look.
7. FRESHEN UP THE CASUAL OUTFIT
When I find an item of clothing I truly love, I find myself wearing it with almost anything. This moto leather jacket is no exception. The jacket makes a simple black casual outfit come alive..... one of my favorite ways to punch up an outfit.
