Get Your Moto Running

The moto jacket is the perfect transition piece to help you step into spring in style. To achieve that  model-off-duty look, pair with relaxed pieces such as a simple tee, black skinny jeans or a basic fitting skirt. I even love to wear them over a flirty summer dress. It's still a little too early to break out the sandals so use your favorite pair of flats to complete the look.
For a cool contrast, I styled this emerald green moto jacket (traditionally worn in the fall), with a ladylike pencil skirt. Moto jackets beg to be worn with edgy pieces, which is why I chose to style this look with studded flats. Instant biker-chic.

DBJ Style Tips:
*Since it's not summer yet, the key is to pair the jacket with one basic piece. In my case, the black pencil skirt. If the temps allow you can rock the look without tights, but chances are you will need some extra coverage. Throw on your tights and voila! Add a scarf for additional warmth.
*An important part to finishing the look is perfecting your make-up. Take the plunge and go for the bold lip. Coral is the "it" color for spring and this is the perfect time to start testing out new shades!
*Don't go too heavy on the jewels. The moto jacket is a statement on its own. Pair with dainty pieces.
*Create a high impact look by investing in citrus-hued jackets. I love bright pops of color for spring styled with neutrals. Who says your jacket has to be black or brown? Step out of your comfort zone and have fun with it!

The moto jacket is quite possibly the coolest way to edge up an outfit for spring. Don't you agree? 

What I'm Wearing: Moto Jacket: Zara (more fun looks here), Top and skirt: H&M, Flats: Nine West (sold out but also loving these), Clutch: Marc Jacobs (similar style here)

XO,
