It’s no secret that our Phoenix and San Diego consignment store pros have been around the block once or twice. But what you might not know is that they’ve done it while on the back of a Harley.
(Or at least they’ve dressed the part.)
Ladies, welcome to the era of daring ensembles, of edgy attire, of true fashion badassery. In the MSC Spotlight today? The not-so-classic biker jacket.
At first thought, you might start to conjure up images of poodle skirts, slicked back hair, and (too)popped collars. And while we’d never deny you a mini mental vacation flashback to 1980s-era John Travolta in those tight (tight) dark jeans, we’ll stop you right there. These jackets aren’t for your average T bird. With one for work, one for date night, and one for, well, just for looking gorgeous, you’ll be able to rock a brand new take on the classic biker jacket any day of the week.
We’re going to start you off with a little neutral perfection – your go-to biker jacket pick for the workplace. The pic stitch above (credit to one of our favorite fashion bloggers, Christine Andrew from Hello Fashion) pairs a drop dead gorgeous peplum dress with a creamy biker jacket – the perfect blend of structure, edginess, and feminine charm. Notice that the jacket – though still definitely biker – isn’t your typical black leather. It’s subdued, it’s sexy, and it’s perfect for rocking that meeting on the books for next week.
Double Take Date Night
Ladies, our Phoenix and San Diego consignment pros are simply loving this look. Why? It’s got the oh-so-badass feel of the classic biker jacket combined with soft and true couture. To get the look (worn by Zina Charkoplia of the blog, Fashion Vibe), simply balance a cropped, semi-fitted leather jacket with a long, flowing skirt (bonus points for pastel). Though Zina’s wearing a gorgeous multi-length skirt, you can also go with a more standard ankle-length skirt (though you won’t be able to show off those killer stems and booties quite as much).
For the everyday biker chic look, we look, of course, to the beautiful Ms. Alba. We love this look for three reasons: 1. Pair it with jeans and a crop top and you have the perfect “Oh, I just wake up like this” ensemble. 2. You can wear it in any color. Literally. Any. Color. Mocha, blue, white – do it. 3. It also looks adorable with a maxi or sundress. Oh, and don’t forget the designer shades.
