Trend: The Moto Jacket

August 8 2013, 9:35 AM

Punk, rock 'n’ roll, grunge: Whatever you call it, black leather, spikes, and chains are all the rage right now. At the top of my list is the motorcycle jacket. Although a full leather version is pretty pricey, this season's fresh crop of motos come in a variety of silhouettes and materials. My favorites under $600:

The most wallet-friendly option is a vegan or faux leather version.

Try: Members Only Quilted Vegan Leather Moto, $99, urbanoutfitters.com

 

 

 

 

 

If you prefer to invest in a premium brand, pick up a coated denim jacket.

Try:  AG Jeans coated denim jacket (pictured, above), $295, Dragonfly, 3615 W. 32nd Ave., 303-433-6331, facebook.com/dragonflyapparel
