THIS IS WHY YOU NEED A MOTO JACKET IN YOUR WINTER CLOSET….

black faux leather jacketsOne piece of clothing I’ve always admired from afar is a moto jacket. It’s the same sort of relationship I had with culottes. Admired from afar and loved it on others, but thinking it would look like a frumpy mess on me. I hear someone saying, “how can a jacket look like a frumpy mess on you, Mavis?” Ha!! I don’t know too. All I can say is that, we’re our own worst enemies sometimes. Lol!

I decided to give this black moto jacket a try when I saw it on sales in New Look last year. Not bad for a price below twenty pounds. I’m not keen on the sheen texture, but I must say, moto jackets have an edgy and classic feel to them. It adds a drop of chicness on an effortless outfit. At this point, I think it is definitely a winter must-have staple. On days where the weather isn’t too bad, it can be that finishing piece to your brunch or date night outfits. With valentine’s day in the pipeline, this will be a great alternative choice instead of a bulky coat.

Are you sold yet? Ha!! Let me know your thoughts. Have a blessed week, Beauties.

    I think a moto jacket is definitely a classic and can be worn with anything. The one you’re wearing looks great with red.

    It’s funny. I was looking at your photos thinking…I should really invest in a real moto jacket…just to come find out that your jacket is faux leather too. I don’t think it looks too shiny from your photos. I love how it looks on you! Brings the outfit together with a bit of edge.

    I love moto jackets, but never thought about wearing them in winter (or at least during the colder days too). but I think it’s all about the right combination and I LOVE yours.
    The sweater is so eyecatchy and looks really comfy. Lovely my dear.

    ADORE this coat on you gorgeous goddess! The ultimate stylish jacket to bring so joy to this freezing season. I’m so in love with the pop of red you’re rocking too; such a vibrant burst of energy! You are so right about Valentine’s; this coat is the perfect compromise to a bulky coat, much more flattering and fun for the month of love! New Look do some stunning pieces and this was such a gem of a find! So happy you did find it as you’re a total match made in heaven with this MOTO jacket 🙂 Wishing you a divine weekend sweetest babe! May it be magical for you ♥︎♥︎♥︎

    Hey Mavis…Your Moto jacket looks awesome. Well, As you have said moto jackets have an edgy and classic feel to them. It can work both for Formal and casual wear. For more trendy jackets. I found an online boutique where trendy and affordable dresses are available which has a very unique collection and follows the trend. check out https://www.bermere.com.
