Sons of Anarchy may be halfway through its final season, but we don’t envision moto-inspired leatherwear to go out of style anytime soon. Leather jackets are perfect transitional pieces as temperatures begin to drop and can go with nearly any outfit in your closet.
The Bitches don tastefully fitted moto jackets anywhere from our subway commutes to morning brunch. I love the look of a sassy leather jacket paired with pointed heels and waxed denim for a night out on the town. Head Bitch in Charge Cori Sue frequently contrasts a preppy frock or oxford shirt with the slight gritty edge of the leather jacket. Bitch in the City Emily throws on her moto coat over a simple tee and jeans for an afternoon of effortlessly chic errands.
Classic leather jackets range between black and brown hues; we love a rich, buttery camel shade to brighten up our look. Although timeless black and browns are excellent investments, don’t be afraid to experiment with color. This season we’ve seen oxblood and navy pieces pop up on runways and retailers.
And don’t forget detailing! Bitches love options; the leather jackets on shelves now are not the generic Brat Pack coats of the ‘80s. You can choose between quilted leather, tassels, oversized lapels, collarless, hoods and more. Mixing mediums like leather with faux fur, suede, or cloth add any interesting and luxe dynamic to your outerwear.
Here’s a selection of our favorite moto-inspired jackets at a variety of price points:
