HOW TO WEAR A MOTO JACKET NO MATTER YOUR AGE

Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is proving that you can wear a moto jacket no matter your age in this beautiful blush look

I bet a lot of you have had a motorcycle or “moto” jacket in your closet at some time in your life. If you are like me, then there are still moto jackets in your life, and they make you feel 10 years younger. Wearing moto jackets is not limited to your age, and they are not limited to leather or faux leather. Moto jackets can come in various styles, and while we have all seen their edgy style, they can also be feminine.

Wearing a moto jacket in the spring was not something that I had considered until recently. In the past, I only wore my heavy and bulky leather motorcycle jacket when Joe and I went for a ride on his Harley. They were great for keeping me warm, and they add a little extra protection from the wind, rain, bugs, and the pavement if you happened to take a tumble. Plus, the only way I was introduced to moto jackets in my childhood was in the movies. I thought that when you wore a motorcycle jacket that you were edgy, a rebel, and a “bad” girl.

Now, I have started to view this jacket style as a fashion statement instead of a necessity for riding a motorcycle. The moto jacket is not just for rebels or bad girls; they have become a wardrobe staple, even for us ladies over 40. Or, in my case, waaaaay over the age of 40. Lol!

I think that my outfit today is very feminine and stylish. This might not have been the look that you were expecting when you clicked on my post, so I hope you are pleasantly surprised. When it comes to wearing a moto jacket, you have to decide the “look” you want to achieve. You can wear a moto jacket with anything from a fancy dress to distressed jeans. So, I guess the question is…

Why Should Wear A Moto Jacket

1. A Moto Jacket is Timeless

As I mentioned, I remember seeing moto jackets when I was a child, and that was a long time ago. They are still just as popular today and probably even more popular than ever among women. I know some women who have been wearing moto jackets for over 15 or 20 years.

2. A Moto Jacket Has No Age Limit

Once, a moto jacket was reserved for people who actually rode motorcycles, but that is not the case anymore. Women, as well as men of all ages, are now wearing moto jackets. If you are in your 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, or more, you can still wear a moto jacket without fear.

3. A Moto Jacket is Modern and Youthful Looking

Today’s moto jackets are modern-looking and come in all kinds of styles and colors. I have mentioned several times in my blog; a moto jacket makes you feel 10 years younger every time you throw it on. You might not want to feel younger and more youthful, but I know that I sure do!!! Some people tend to view women over 40 as irrelevant, old, stuck in their ways, or frumpy! 😳 A moto jacket is one way to tell them to “kiss old Nelly,” aka, (kiss my rear), and remember, those same people will one day be our age.

4. A Moto Jacket Can Be Worn With Anything

Yes, a moto jacket truly can be worn with anything. Of course, a leather moto jacket looks edgy with distressed jeans and boots, but that is not the only way to wear one. Try wearing a moto jacket with a dress and heels, a maxi dress, or even with an evening dress. If you’ve got a few thousand dollars burning a hole in your wallet, then you can even buy a moto jacket by Chanel, and I guarantee that it will make everything look fabulous.

Here are some of the looks that I’ve worn in the past.

Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing a zebra print top

For today’s look, I started with this beautiful zebra print sleeveless top. I hesitated about ordering this top when I read the description because it called it a lightweight twill. Twill sounds stiff and hard to me, and that wasn’t what I wanted to wear against my body. Instead, this top is very silky and flowy, and it feels amazing, so I am not sure if I am crazy or if they are. Lol! The top is semi-fitted, so I ordered a large to make sure that it didn’t show lumps and bumps. I can’t say enough about this top; I love everything about it. It comes in several colors, so I am considering ordering one in white since that I something that I am always needing. AND the top is 40% off right now!!! Click here to see more zebra print items.

I wanted to give you an idea of the length of the top from the back view, and as you can see, it is nice and long. It covers most of your backside and hits right at my hip.

I LOVE the color of these jeggings! I would have called this blush, but the website calls it Pale Azalea. They are much more creative with their color names than I am. Lol! These pull-on jeggings (yes, I said pull-on) are comfortable and chic looking. I love the jeggings’ style, and they are the perfect length to wear with flats or heels. They are available in tall and petite also, and up to a size 4X. I am wearing a size 1 in the jeggings since I wanted them to fit somewhat loose on me, and I think these fit me well.

Here is a sweater that I have that would look FABULOUS with these jeggings. I just haven’t had time to put it on the blog yet.

Handbags are my thing! I know a lot of you love shoes, but for me, it is handbags and jewelry. This mini canvas tote by Tory Burch is my latest handbag obsession. I love the color of the leather trim, and the canvas material is gorgeous for this spring and summer. The tote is a great medium size, even though they have it labeled as mini. The only downside to this tote, other than price, is that it is one large compartment instead of separated areas. But, if you love handbags as much as I do, then this one should be on your radar.

Ahhhh, finally, the moto jacket that I am wearing. First off, I love the longer elongated style of this jacket. Many us gurls like to have extra coverage of our backside, and this jacket does the trick. I love the large lapels and the placement of the seams that make this jacket super flattering. But, can we talk about this color??? The Pale Azalea color is pretty on the jeggings, but it is gorgeous on the jacket since it brings warmth to your face.

The moto jacket is enhanced by a modern asymmetrical zip front, even though I will probably never wear it fully zipped. I am wearing a size 1 in this jacket, and it fits great.

Here is a look so that you can see the length of the jacket and how well it covers your backside.

Don’t these little sling-back flats match my handbag almost perfectly? This was one of those happy accidents since I didn’t do it on purpose. I should have just kept my mouth shut and let you think that I put a lot of thought into the purchase. Lol! The bow adornment on top of the flat is adorable, and it gives the shoes a unique detail. The pointy toe will elongate your legs, and you know that I love that look. But, it is the tan insert on the side of the shoe that sparked my interest. I am wearing my usual size 9 in the shoes, and I think they run true to size.

I also ordered these mules, and I love the neutral color. So, if bows are not your thing, you might like these instead.

Speaking of loving jewelry, here is what I am wearing today. The large AVI hoops you see me wearing ALL of the time, the Rebecca multi-strand necklace in white howlite, the Beckett link bracelet, and the Natalie Hinged Bangle Bracelet.

This is the last week for me to celebrate Joe’s Birthday. He told me that I couldn’t make a big deal out of his birthday. I don’t think that announcing for the entire world to see is making a big deal. Lol! So, randomly, each week, I am going to pick a winner for a gift. The gifts will vary in size and price, and I will pick the winner from the comments that I receive during the week.

This week’s winner is…..Vicki!!! Keep commenting, and you might be next week’s winner.

    I love jackets and I LOVE all your moto jacket looks! Thank you for showing them in one post. I’ve upped my collection of women’s trucker jackets in different colors, fabrics and lengths, but after seeing the moto photos, I realize it’s been a mistake in avoiding them. You explain and show great ways to wear them. I can just picture you on a Harley hanging on to Joe, lol!

    Love today’s outfit. It reminds me of when we used to wear pantsuits. I sometimes miss them because they made it so easy to dress for upscale events that were suitable to wear pants to. I really wish you would stop it with all the cute handbags!

    Love this look and I LOVE that floral sweater! I’ve had my eye on it, but it’s only available in size 0 now. If you have it, how is the fit? I might be able to wear the 0 if it fits on the larger side. I usually wear a small in tops, depending on the fit. Thanks.
