5 Ways to Wear a Suede Moto Jacket

You guys love to see a bunch of ways to wear a specific wardrobe item, so I’m going to start a new series for January, and we’re kicking it off with 5 Ways to Wear a Suede Moto Jacket.

5 Ways to Wear a Suede Moto Jacket

I was actually in the midst of compiling 25 winter outfit ideas, and I realized I’ve already done a winter outfit series, so I took it to a poll on my Insta Story to see if people prefer to see 5 ways to wear or a roundup of winter outfit ideas. Well, this is how it turned out!

Insta Story

It was actually a lot closer early in the day, and I had about 10 people message me and say BOTH!!! But clearly 5 Ways won out, so here we are!

Conveniently, a lot of my favorite wardrobe staples were repeated many times in the 25 winter outfit ideas I came up with, so I was able to split that post up and create a bunch of different 5 Ways to Wear posts without reinventing the wheel.

I decided to start with 5 Ways to Wear a Suede Moto Jacket mainly because my particular jacket is low inventory.

I purchased this jacket last year, and it is by far one of my best wardrobe investments. I’ve worn it so much. And while I happen to love this shade of taupe, you could recreate these outfits with a grey, camel, or even black jacket.

There are tons of other moto jacket options out there, and I’ll round up some at the end of this post for your shopping convenience, in case you’re in the market for one. For this post, all of the outfits but one will be featuring this taupe suede moto jacket simply because it’s what I happen to have.

5 Ways to Wear a Suede Moto Jacket

#1. Taupe Moto + Burgundy Sweater + Black Jeans + Black Pumps

I wore this outfit to go out to dinner with girlfriends last weekend. I kept it sleek with no necklace, and instead I wore

BlankNYC suede moto jacket (size up if in between; wearing a medium) // Madewell Inland turtleneck (wearing a small) // Rag & Bone raw hem skinny jeans // Lucky Brand Tukko d’orsay heels // Rebecca Minkoff Love crossbody // David Yurman necklace

This is a more casual take on the same look, with the same burgundy sweater. This time I wore blue jeans and taupe booties, and I added a leather layer necklace. I love how the brushed silver pendants and the leather cord necklace coordinate with the jacket with.

And yet another variation on the theme — when I find a combo that works, like this burgundy sweater and taupe moto, I wear it over and over again.

#2. Taupe Moto + Off-White Turtleneck + Skinny Jeans + Snakeskin Booties

You could easily sub another neutral bootie for this look if you don’t have snakeskin, but I do think the snakeskin booties add a nice bit of pattern and texture to this look.

And again, I’ve also worn this taupe jacket and ivory sweater with black jeans and pumps.

#3. Taupe Moto + Black Tank + Bootcut Jeans + Red Booties

This outfit demonstrates how a structured moto jacket looks just as good with bootcut jeans as it does with skinnies. I know not all of you like wearing skinnies, and I also realize that they’re not ideal for every body type, so hopefully this outfit shows you that you can pretty much swap out skinny jeans for bootcuts (or even a straight leg style) in any of these outfits.

#4. Suede Moto + Black Turtleneck + Blue Jeans + Black Booties

This really isn’t a whole lot different than the one above. I’m still wearing a black under layer and blue jeans, but this time I kept it all neutral by repeating black in the booties, and the turtleneck sweater and distressed jeans give it a more casual vibe.

And another look with my taupe moto and a black turtleneck… I swapped out the black leather booties for black suede loafers, and I’m wearing a different necklace. And actually, this is a different black turtleneck — this one is a donegal knit, which adds a subtle pattern.

#5. Blonde Moto + Off-White Cami + Blue Jeans + Blush Pumps

I like a silky woven cami with a suede moto and pumps for a date night look. Unfortunately the blonde color of this jacket sold out, but the taupe moto (or any other color) would work just as well. I just might wear a different color shoe.
