Biker jackets and biker boots are considered casual classics. Although timeless, the biker trend has taken on new life for the fall 2013 season. Biker jackets and biker boots graced the runways for fall/winter 2013/2014 in New York, Paris, Milan and London. Store buyers and consumers loved the casual, edgy biker look and store shelves have become stocked with the look for the autumn season; and consumers are buying the biker look like mad!
With the rocker chic trend and grunge trend popular in 2013, it is only natural that the biker look, often referred to as the “moto” look, would gain popularity with Fashionistas who do not normally wear such edgy attire. Designers have responded to the trend with biker boots and jackets in multiple colors which stray from traditional black. We are seeing shades of brown, tan and even brighter hues such as blue and pink on biker inspired items.
In addition to traditional biker jackets, designers have created vests, sweater and tops with biker jacket details. Biker boots have found new life with high heel versions of the traditional, casual style. This is bringing the biker look into chicer, dressier waters. Love that!
My favorite biker jacket of the season is by Cusp. I personally own this jacket and feel it is the best value on the market for rocking the biker trend. The sleeves zipper off from the body of the jacket leaving you with a biker vest! It is two jackets in one! The leather is soft and the jacket is cozy. I also love the price especially considering the jacket is also a vest. So much bang for your buck!
