How to Style Suede Moto Jackets

How to Style Suede Moto Jackets

A suede moto jacket is a classic piece that you can rock every single spring.

It’s a nice transitional jacket to wear as the weather starts to get a little bit warmer!

After spending the winter wearing all black and neutrals, all I want to do is add some colour into my wardrobe.

Coloured moto jackets are great because they’re cute as heck and they’ll still help to keep you warm!

Here are a few different ways on how to style suede moto jackets.

How to style suede moto jackets

1. Throw on a suede moto jacket over a plain outfit

Let’s be real: if it’s cold out, ain’t no one going all out with their outfit.

Toronto winters are usually pretty brutal, so spring isn’t a very quick transition.

Turtlenecks and boots are still very much a reality even as we start creeping into April.

But don’t fret: if the weather’s in the positives, you can likely get away with wearing a suede moto jacket over your turtleneck.

This way, at least you can look like you tried to look cute even if your outfit is as simple as a turtleneck and jeans.

No more puffy winter coats!

Or maybe a puffy winter coat over the cute jacket if it’s still below zero outside.

My brown suede moto jacket is from BLANKNYC, and it comes in a bunch of different colours.

My wool turtleneck is from M Boutique (similar from Nordstrom), my jeans are from Guess, and my over-the-knee boots are from Nastygal (similar from Nordstrom).

2. Go for an all-white look

I’ve seen so many people wearing this suede moto jacket from Zara (similar one from BLANKNYC), and I can’t blame ’em.

They’ve come out with a bunch of colours over the years, and I adore this baby blue one.

I paired it with a loose white cami from Aritzia (similar from Nordstrom), destroyed white denim from Guess (similar from Levi’s), and black booties from Michael Kors.

Having the baby blue jacket over the white on white outfit makes it a little more chic and a little less like I just walked out of a futuristic dystopian drama.

3. Pair your coloured suede moto jacket with more colour

What better way to pair a coloured moto jacket than with some more colour?

My sister knew how much I loved my baby blue suede moto jacket from Zara, so she gave me her yellow version.

These striped blue and white pants are one of my spring and summer staples, and it’s a neutral enough blue to pair with pretty much any colour moto jacket.

The pants are an old pair from Forever 21, and I found an almost exact pair at Nordstrom.

Simple white sneakers are another spring and summer staple, and I decided to go with these suede Converse One Star sneakers!
