Printed Moto Jackets

 

 

The Moto jacket is the go to piece for fall. However, you might find it difficult to add this rocker staple to other styles. So we created this guide to help you add this piece effectively to your wardrobe.

Classic/Casual

We loved the JUICY COUTURE  Navajo print that has the casual feel and the edgy moto style. When looking for a printed moto jacket, cotton and faux leather combinations for casual looks and neutral tones for a more classic outfit.

For Casual:  Printed moto jackets can be paired with jeans for a easy and fun look.

For Classic: Pencil skirts can make a printed moto jacket look more refined.

Punk/Rock

BCBG MAXMARIA boucle jacket gives plaid print a more refined look but the unfinished edges give it that punk edge. The idea here is to find a printed moto jacket in traditional prints, stud details and a mix of faux leather throughout to increase to the edge factor. Choose one that appears rough around the edges for a more punk feel.

For Rockers: Pair it with ripped or torn jeans and ankle boots.

For Punks: Pair with sneakers and printed pants. Don’t go plaid all over because it will be overwhelming.

Romance/Vintage

Flowers and lace detail make for a great edgy/soft look.  REBECCA TAYLOR’s floral print detail adds a feminine look to the moto jacket and the faux leather plays down the edginess. Look for a feminine looking moto jacket, floral prints and lace detail as well as neutral faux leather colors to soften the edginess of the moto jacket.

Pair it with:  Full skirts increase the feminine feel, go short to be flirty and longer for work.

Glam

Animal prints and faux fur details on moto jackets add glam to the edginess. Finding moto jackets with fur detail is easy but animal print may be more difficult. Find fabrics with glitter thread accents and rhinestone detail.

We end our get it for less portion of the fall trends with every chic girls’ fav; the Moto jacket which though keeps it’s cool girl vibe is now updated with prints!! Plaid, floral and boho patterns are big this season! Wear this over casual and simple pieces so that the jacket gets all the attention!!

Most people do not come out for Mercedes Benz Feburary fashion week, but the winter looks truly dwarf the boring and monotone looks we saw during this Spring reveal. The looks seem to only inspire me to shop my closet since I am sure they are reminiscent of this past fall. I do follow trends for new ideas to add to my closet, but what is a girl to do when the same themes pop up year after year? The designers may blame manufactured brands, but the true cause of lack of sales is originality and the creation items easily produced for a lower price. Here is what we saw:

Wanderlust

Odd pop culture prints at Libertine, sheers and sequin pairings at Pamela Rowland and embroidery everywhere. Unfortunately, the shapes remain the same and some added gimmicks for stage appeal. We loved Pamela Rowland’s feather treatment, but the cape like attachment seemed an afterthought.  We also frowned at the wedding dress finale, which was made from a load of cliche from ruffles to lace.

White

The “wear white after labor day ” has lost its rebellious feel now that we can wear it year round. After just seeing white looks in Feburary, they look oddly similar to the white looks of spring 2015. The sweaters at the spring shows did not help us distinguish between the two seasons.

the West

After being a trend for the past four seasons, Western style should now be a staple. Who does not have a fringe item in your closet? Jay Godfrey did it right when adding a luxurious feel with sequin, treated denim and leather accents, but the fact that his fall collection dwarfed his spring is still evident.

In any case, designers have lost thier competitive edge or maybe they can’t afford to be..

Nyfw Spring 2015 Upon us!!

So sorry my lovely readers! We have been away from our jewel encrusted laptops attending New York Fashion Week Shows and will be bringing you all the latest pics and coverage next week!! So stay tuned and please read the archives..

Jay Godfrey gave an impressive installation based on lux Western styles amplified with lace, quilting and the oh so familiarity of fringe.
  We love the concept described in the program:

The electric west draws from the influences of late 60’s and early rock and rollers who infused country and western tones…

We felt the rock and roll vibe with the one woman band who played the drums and the guitar at one point at the same time. Haystacks and barrels completed the look. Godfrey’s first venture into denim was too similar to GUESS but his combination of lace and fringe was what stole the show.

image

Sequin played a role in the collection. From full sequins gowns to suit, but they seemed out of place in the wild west.

image

All in all, we love Godfrey in the fall, but his spring collection only had a few gold nuggets. At least, he made the west more fashionable.
