Classic basics are pieces you can wear over and over again in many ways. My top, three-quarter sleeve top, and simple crepe pants in either the straight or tapered leg are the pieces I reach for at least a couple of times a week. They can stand alone, but they are the perfect backdrop for any style story I want to tell. Today I am showing you a look that includes another modern classic piece for fall, the biker or moto jacket.
A favorite piece to wear when the air becomes a bit crisp is a moto-style jacket. The traditional biker jacket may seem too edgy when offered in black leather with studs, zippers, and pockets. Still, some variation of the biker or moto-style jacket is a modern basic for many women. Whether it is linen, denim, or faux leather, or suede, it can be a great addition to your classic wardrobe.
This jacket by Clara Sunwoo via Shop My Fair Lady includes a limited number of subtle gold zipper details and a rich cobalt blue, very soft and comfortable knit fabric. I can also wear the jacket open with jeans, a tee, and loafers to create a more casual look. That’s the beauty of basics; they are hard-working pieces can you can wear dressed up or down for any occasion.
I played up the jacket’s gold zippers with burnished gold and black clutch bag and added a couple of goldtone pieces of jewelry. I rarely wear heels other than out to dinner these days. My suede pumps are a few years old. Referral and affiliate links in my posts may generate a small commission for me at no additional cost to you.
