The Classy Girl’s Guide To Wearing a Biker Jacket

Although many women don’t mind sporting a more masculine look with their biker jacket, others prefer a more feminine look when wearing their jackets.  A biker jacket is incredibly versatile and can be worn in accordance with a woman’s style easily.  The following will help you pair your jacket with other items for an upbeat look that never seems to go out of style!

Choosing a Biker Jacket

If you don’t already own a biker jacket, you’ll find that there is a wide selection of these jackets to choose from in a myriad of styles.  Naturally, some will be more on the rough and tough biker side while others may be toned down to look almost preppy!  You can choose a biker jacket style that will enhance your wardrobe and complement your look.  Though typical jackets are black, you’ll also find them in brown and other colors too.  While the iconic jackets are leather, you can also purchase faux leather examples if you choose and these come in a rainbow colors.

You’ll also find that some styles can complement your shape better than others.  For instance, a diagonal zipper style can mask a tummy problem area.  The right cut can achieve a kind of look you’re going for.  While some cuts are youthful and hip, others might sport ruffles for a more feminine and even romantic look.

Upscale and Sophisticated

If you are partial to that upscale look, you can pair your biker jacket–a sleek black or silver number–with a pencil skirt or even some silk slacks.  You can achieve a sophisticated look by wearing a gray jacket, for example, with clothing that is also gray.  The single-color outfit is a surefire standout.  If you like a put-together look, go for the single-color dynamic.

Casual Chic

You can achieve a comfortable look for a day of shopping or sightseeing by pairing a two-tone biker jacket with a pair of skinny jeans, an oversize sweater, and your favorite fall boots!  A biker jacket is versatile enough to dress up or down depending what you pair with it.  So, if you are planning to hit a hockey game after a day of shopping, you coat can easily go with you from one venue to another.

Club Scene

For an edgy look, pair a sleek shiny black cropped biker jacket with your favorite tank dress–something that sparkles.  Pair a metallic dress and heels with this jacket for a look you’re sure to want to repeat.  To ramp up the edgy factor, wear a short dress with knee-high leather boots that match your jacket.

Urban and Trendy

Pair a metallic silver biker jacket with a pair of matching tights.  Tie the look together with a long sleek shirt–pearl gray or white.  You can dress it up with some accessories–a long silk scarf or a strand of vintage glass beads.  Add some stand-out earring or a stylish hat to complement the look.  Some leather boots or a pair of flats will complete your city-going outfit.

Take-Me-Anywhere Style

If you aren’t sure where the day will take you, grab your favorite turtleneck and pair it with your favorite jeans and your biker jacket.  A black turtleneck is always a safe bet.  You can show up to brunch in this ensemble or hit the mall with a good friend for an afternoon of shopping.  A great pair of boots will dress this look up as will a pair of flashy heels!

Girly and Sweet

You can tame that biker jacket by pairing it with a floral twirl dress and a hip pair of boots.  Add a headband for your hair and you’re ready for a date out for pizza or to catch a movie.  Biker jackets pair really well with all sorts of dresses and give them just a bit more drama, a bit more flair!

You’ll find that your biker jacket is versatile enough to wear every week!  It goes with denim as well as corduroy.  It won’t compromise your tweed or dampen your knits.  In fact, you’ll love wearing your biker jacket so much that you should probably own more than one!

    Leather jackets that are made for women are very feminine. I guess the style and colors is what makes it a softer look for a women.

    I dunno, once you add ruffles it isn’t really a biker jacket to me… can still be a good jacket, though!
