Can You Layer a Moto Jacket Underneath a Long Coat?

An Unusual And Chic Layering Combination For The Snow

You shouldn’t compromise style for warmth and vice versa. I like to try unusual layering combinations since I live in such a cold climate…just to mix things up. One of my favorites is to layer a moto jacket UNDER a coat.

For my formula on how to layer when it’s really cold, check out this video.

Layering a Moto Jacket Under a Wool Coat

Wearing a moto jacket under a wool coat is not a super common way to layer. But I love how modern and chic it looks! The exact leather jacket I’m wearing in the photos above is sold out but I linked three options I’ve tried that are all at different price points in case you’re looking for a new leather/faux leather moto jacket. 

Under the jacket, I have on a black turtleneck sweater paired with faux leather skinny jeans. I love the leather look and these jeans fit perfectly! On my feet, I’m wearing some waterproof and snowproof wedge booties by Ugg. The gloves I have on are by Carolina Amato and a must-have winter accessory. The black are a great staple, but there’s also a beautiful burgundy pair, which are equally chic! 

If you’re looking to stay warm (and stylish) this winter, find all of my winter must-haves accessories here.

Now, let’s talk about the ALL-IMPORTANT extra layer. In order for this to work, you have to layer OVER your moto jacket. That’s where a beautiful wool or cashmere wrap coat comes in. You get the warmth and the sophistication of that long coat and then when you get to your destination, you can take off the long coat and leave on your moto jacket for a great look. This camel coat is SO gorgeous and comes in three colors. If you are between sizes, I would size up for easier layering.

Like with Jean’s, pants, skirts and dresses. How about black shoes with navy? Thanks for your advice.
