Where do we even start with our love of moto jackets? They instantly give your look a downtown-cool spin — plus, they're a great investment; you'll keep them for years to come. Today, we're highlighting a few of our favorites that are on the market right now. If you don't already have a basic black version, you need to get one, stat! For those of you who are ready to explore beyond the basics, we have sequined, tweed, and jacquard options that you will seriously love. Watch on to see our picks! Hair and makeup by Kasia Bohos.
A classic Fall staple, reinvented by Celine. This four thousand dollar biker jacket is, depending on your perspective, a must-have for Fall. If your budget doesn't warrant such spending, there are always options. But let's talk about the Celine version for a second, shall we? Celine, the French fashion house owned by LVMH, is now headed by Ivana Omazic. Omazic has on her resume stints with Miu Miu, Jil Sander, and Prada which is probably why this brand keeps popping up on our radar. The jacket, with its wide lapel and scrunch-worthy sleeves, is modern enough to separate itself from the classic vintage versions without leaving 'classic' out of the equation entirely. In fact, this piece is something we're sure the owner would wear for seasons to come. So, if there ever were a time to spend such money, and we know the recession doesn't help matters, now would be it. No matter which leather bomber you opt for (some gals forego black all together) the trick, we think, is investing in one you know you'll wear for seasons to come. Staples like these deserve a bit of extra attention.
Ashley Olsen has long been attached to her leather jackets — she wore one of her faves, her Rick Owens Biker Jacket, last November to celebrate a museum opening with Calvin Klein. Though she pared down for the new issue of GQ, Rachel Bilson used her jacket to stay cozy while shopping earlier this week in LA. Ash's look is red carpet-ready, while Rachel's is more girl-on-the-go: Which one wins you over?
