How To Choose The Best Moto Jacket

The chillier weather has finally made its way in, and I’ve been loving a good leather jacket for this time of year. You can see my favorite one here on my Instagram. I’m fully convinced a moto jacket is an essential staple every woman needs because they’re versatile, chic, and easy to style in the fall and winter. You’re guaranteed to wear it for years to come because it’s a classic piece that never goes out of style.

Below I’m sharing 5 tips on how to choose the best moto jacket for you!

1. How Much Should I Pay For A Leather Jacket?
The good news is, you’ve got lots of options! Vegan leathers have come along way. My advice to you? Pay what is personally comfortable for you and within your budget. This is not a one-season purchase. It will be in your wardrobe for years. It’s an investment, and you want to love it. Also, buying second hand is an excellent option to explore these days, too! You can learn more about that here.
2. Picking The Right COLOR

As with most pieces hanging in your wardrobe, if you want to get the most wear out of a leather jacket, it pays to go for a neutral color over trendy colors you’ll only wear for one season. You won’t go wrong with a classic black moto jacket because of its versatility – it will go with basically anything you wear. However, any neutral will be your best option, and I highly suggest picking a color you know you’ll wear for years to come.

3. Faux Vs. Real

Something to keep in mind when choosing the material: light vegan options for warm climates and real leather for cold weather. There’s really no wrong answer, though, and it truly comes down to how much you want to spend. If you want to make this a true investment and go for the real leather, nothing beats that fragrant smell or luxe look and fit.

4. The Fit

Personally, I appreciate the ability to wear a jacket over my shoulders as a layering option. Choose a classic length and try to avoid ones that are too cropped. Also, don’t invest in a piece that’s too tight because it does no good if you’re uncomfortable! If you love an oversized style, go for that!

5. The Style

The more clean and classic a moto jacket is, the more wear you’ll get out of it. I don’t recommend investing in a moto jacket with too many crazy zippers or buckles. If you want a bottom belt like this one, keep it as simple as possible. The simpler it is, the more versatile it is as well.

The Best Faux Leather Pants

FAUX LEATHER PANT TREND

Fall has shown us many new trends this year, but my all-time favorite look so far is the faux leather pant trend. From faux leather leggings and joggers to faux leather work pants, you truly can’t go wrong when wearing this style. Spanx makes the world’s greatest faux leather pieces, including their faux leather moto leggings, biker shorts, and pencil skirts, to name a few.

I’m featuring today the classic ankle skinny pants that are super versatile and perfect for fall. Dress them up with your favorite heels or down with a pair of your comfiest sneakers! They are a bit looser in the fit since the ankle is more like a straight-leg pant than a legging style. There’s even a seam along the back comparable to a true leather pant, making them look way more expensive than they really are.

If you’re shopping for a chic pair of leather pants for fall, these by Spanx are a definite must-have. You can shop my other favorite styles from Spanx below, including the AMAZING bodysuit I did a fun style session video of.

Amazon Prime Day

I am so excited about the huge deals I have found for Amazon Prime Day 2020! I don’t know about you, but there isn’t a week that goes by without an Amazon delivery at my house. There really isn’t much you cannot buy on Amazon, and you can’t beat the convenience! In today’s crazy world, on-line shopping has become a staple in most households.

I’m making this short and sweet because the good stuff, like these Apple Earpods or Bose headphones, will go quickly. Don’t hesitate if you are wanted an item!

Take advantage of the lower prices on items you constantly need, like batteries. Also, start to think about holiday gifts because the lower prices are worth the storage time. I’ve just ordered these black and white check kitchen towels that I LOVE! What a perfect time to change out your bathroom towels to these waffle towels for a spa fresh feel!

I have chosen my top pick’s on the gift board above, which is a clickable shopping board that will bring you right to the Amazon site. Alot of the price discounts are reflected when you add to the cart.

Have fun, and I hope you score some great deals today!
