We’ve been really into the whole biker chic motif lately, so it seemed quire apropos to feature a fashion pulse stylist write-up on the look. Let’s start with the essential biker jacket: we discovered a quilted version of the classic with this Croft & Barrow Quilted Biker Jacket ($26.99, Kohl’s). The quilted fabric adds a touch of feminity to the hardcore look. We also thought this Rampage Sleeveless Zipper Front Motorcycle Jacket, ($54, Rampage) could add a fashion-forward interpretation, as well as softening the look up with a bit of fleece opposed to leather. Layer underneath of the jacket with the Destroyed Tee ($35, AlternativeApparel.com) or the Burnout Deep V-neck w/Pocket ($38, also AlternativeApparel.com). It’s kinda like a chic update of the Rebel without a Cause James Dean jacket and white tee combo. And of course, you’ve gotta do denim: we like the dark hue and zip detailing of the Zip Ankle Skinny Jean ($12.50, Forever 21).
Top it off for a pair of shoes that look great on, or off of a Harley — these Patricia Field for Payless Conga Boot ($35, Payless) will certainly give you some height, along with a “don’t mess with me” attitude.
It’s time for the accessories that will give your biker chic aesthetic a powerful punch of personality: go for standard with the apt. 9 Motorcycle Gloves ($21.60, Kohl’s) or go fingerless in the Military Fingerless Gloves ($20, Urban Outfitters). Next, top it off with the Grace Hats Round Beret Hat ($36, Tobi.com), and/or slap on these Gold Standard Sunglasses ($11.99, Modcloth.com). Keep your possessions safe and chic in this Blackout Buckled Clutch ($29.99, ModCloth.com), and let them know you mean business by donning the Gold Heart Doorknockers , ($10, FredFlare.com) in your ears.
Now you’re equipped and ready to roll with the knockout look of biker chic!
