How to Wear a Moto Jacket 2 Ways!

Featuring My Gorgeous Friend, Heather Anderson…

A black leather moto jacket is a wardrobe basic. It’s SO versatile. You can wear it with jeans, dresses, skirts, etc. It’s the perfect third layer! The black leather moto jacket I’m featuring in this post is a beautiful classic option. Annnndd… it’s part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale so it’s a very reasonable price for the quality!  I teamed up with my blogger bud, Heather Anderson of So Heather to style this moto jacket two ways! Keep scrolling to find out more about sweet Heather.

Wear it 2 Ways

Heather and I decided to do this collaboration and we did not discuss outfit details … except that the black moto jacket would be the highlight. Isn’t it funny how we both picked faded gray jeans and python booties?? I even meant to grab my quilted black bag but I forgot it. These looks are so similar and yet somehow they look totally different!

Look #1 | Jeans, Bodysuit & Booties

The moto jacket I’m wearing above by Chelsea28 is an amazing quality for the price! Right now, it is $199! That may seem high… but when you compare it to other jackets, you will quickly notice that leather motos ususally start around $300!

The collar will stand up for a cool, edgy feel. Or wear it laid down for an equally chic look. The hardware is minimal so it doesn’t take away from the jacket. And it’s lined so it’ll keep you warm in the fall months. If you’re not a fan of real leather, I linked a faux leather option below.

I styled the jacket with a sexy long sleeve, velvet, leopard bodysuit. This bodysuit is only $46 and perfect for date night! The jeans I’m wearing are by Topshop. I’ve featured them in some other NSale posts you can find below. Remember to size UP in Topshop jeans! To finish off the look I threw on these super chic python sock booties by Charles Davidson. They’re comfortable, sleek, and fun!

Look #2 | Jeans, Peep-Toe Booties, Black Halter Top.

Heather styled the leather moto jacket with cool gray high rise jeans by AGOLDE. Her python print shooties (shoe/booties) are SO chic and I love how they look with jeans! The top she’s wearing is a sexy, halter-neck bodysuit. Please visit her website, SoHeather, to shop her EXACT LOOK.

A bit more about my dear friend, Heather. She and I have been friends since I started blogging 5 years ago. We are a very similar size and build, even the same age! Even though Heather lives in Dallas, I know she is just a phone call or text away. She is a great friend. I trust her. I adore her… and I know you will too! You can check out her website here.

Check out last year’s Wear it 2 Ways post with Heather here. Here we are at the Reward Style Conference together. And, one of our very first collaborations here. This one gave me a giggle. It was posted about five months after I became an official blogger in 2014.

It’s all about pocket placement. The key is small-ish and HIGH pockets.

  1. Does anyone else find the rag & Bones moto tight in the arms? I hate to return it, because I know they are sold out and I won’t get a medium. I have It in small.
