Biker jackets are smart street style!
Somebody recently said to me, “You’re fearless when it comes to fashion!” Ha! Nothing could be farther than the truth. There are certain styles/trends that I think long and hard about before I embrace them.
Case in Point?
The Biker Jacket
Being over 50, oh how I lamented on whether it was “age appropriate” before I purchased one. Truth me told, I don’t like the widely used term “age appropriate”at all. I understand what the term’s original intent was but, in my view it’s turned into yet another way to judge women. That said, I believe we are well advised to be true to our personal style. Part of my personal style (yours may well be different) is not to look like someone who is trying to look much younger. I was worried that a biker jacket would run counter to that. But oh how wrong I was!
The biker jacket came back into mainstream fashion in the 80’s along with big hair. Today, thirty plus years later, it’s considered by many as wardrobe essential. One of the really great things about biker jackets these days is that they come in a variety of fabrics : silk, velvet and of course leather.
Here is one of my favorite ways to wear it:

Super casual with a little bit of a twist…right?
