4 Tips for Styling a Motorcycle Jacket
Motorcycle jackets aren’t just an essential piece of safety kit for when riding your motorcycle – you can also style them to double up as a causal coat or jacket for when you’re not on the road.

If you’re a biker looking for a jacket you can double up as safety and casual wear, check out the great range of ladies biker jackets at motochanic.com.
Add Some Color
If you wear too much black with a motorcycle jacket you can run the risk of looking a bit gothic – so unless that’s the style that you’re going for, add pops of bright, contrasting colors to the bottom layer. Light colored shirts and pastel colors such as pink, baby blue or cream work well in combination with a biker jacket, and bright colors such as orange and yellow are also a great option as they add a bit of ‘pop’ to your outfit. Pair with a statement necklace, and you’re good to go!
Keep It Simple
Motorcycle jackets look great when paired with a simple, classic outfit such as a shirt, jeans and a pair of ankle boots. Whether you go for skinny, boyfriend or boot cut jeans you’re sure to add an edgy finishing touch to your style by throwing on a leather motorcycle jacket. You might also want to consider wearing light blue denim jeans or distressed jeans to add a bit of contrast to the look.
Who said that motorcycle jackets always have to be black? Add some variety to your jacket collection by going for different colors such as brown or even navy blue. You could even try a white or cream motorcycle jacket, or if you’re feeling adventurous why not opt for a bright color such as pink! Scarves are also a great accessory to add to any color of motorcycle jacket whether you opt for a woolen scarf on a chilly day or a lighter on for warmer days, and pick one that includes both matching and contrasting colors to really complete your outfit.
Pair with a Skirt
Pairing your motorcycle jacket with a skirt is a great way to create an outfit that’s stylish, edgy and still has a feminine flair to it. Biker jacket and skirt outfits are a great example of opposites attracting – pair the rough, edgy biker jacket with a feminine skirt and you get great fashion chemistry. Skater skirts are an excellent choice of clothing to pair with a skater jacket, and it can look even better if you go for fabrics that have some sort of pattern –floral if you really want to create a feminine touch, and houndstooth and checked designs also go perfectly with a leather motorcycle jacket.
