If a sweater and jeans is my favorite look for fall, a suede moto jacket outfit is a close second. For today’s post, I’m styling a taupe suede moto jacket with washed black jeans and taupe suede booties.
I have to admit, I don’t think I’d have come up with this combination on my own. I saw it first on one of the influencers I follow for style inspiration.
As soon as I saw this look on my Instagram feed, I knew I had to recreate it. I just love the different shades of black and taupe and how they all play off each other.
Remember those off-black jeans I was trying to style for my date night last weekend? (If you missed it, the outfit evolution is at the end of this post.) I didn’t end up wearing them that night because the sandals were throwing everything off, but it was too warm that night for booties, so I finally ditched the entire look and wore something totally different.
Well, they work perfectly with this suede moto jacket outfit. As soon as cool weather sets in here in Philly, I’m so wearing this.
Washed black denim is trending right now, and it’s a great option to have in your wardrobe, especially if you wear a lot of jeans. Unfortunately my exact jeans are sold out, but this pair is similar, and this pair is another good option.
This jacket has been a staple in my fall wardrobe for several years, and it’s still going strong. I actually have it in two other colors as well, but I wear the taupe far more than either of the others. It’s such a great neutral shade and so versatile.

The suede on this moto jacket is soft and luxe, the hardware is sturdy, and it’s fully lined. I like how it doesn’t have a belt or epaulettes because they tend to add bulk in areas where I don’t need it. It has just enough moto styling to give it a bit of toughness, but it’s still refined and classy.
I’ve been wearing mine for going on three seasons, and it’s held up great. For size reference, I take a medium in BlankNYC jackets.
I’m wearing a black mixed jersey tank underneath. This is another one of my tried and true wardrobe staples. It’s from Ann Taylor, and I like how it’s a little dressier than a t-shirt, but it doesn’t look like I’m wearing lingerie.
In fact, I like this tank so much, I also have it in ivory. I wear it a lot under jackets and cardigans.
I don’t usually wear belts, but I thought it added a nice focal point to the inspiration outfit, so I added one. It really does have a way of finishing off the look. I need to invest in a few more so I have some other options.
My ankle boots are a similar shade of taupe to the jacket, and they have a subtle Western flare that is very much on trend right now.
The stacked block heel is stable and easy to walk in, and the elastic goring on the sides makes them easy to slip on and off. There’s a zipper in the back if you need it, but I usually don’t.
I recommend sizing up half if ordering these boots. I needed the 8 1/2.
I noticed that Meagan didn’t wear a necklace with her look, but I felt like I needed some bling so I added this mixed metal disc necklace. I’ve had it for years, and I often end up wearing it with my moto jackets because something about the hammered metal and antique gold seems to work really well with casual, edgy looks.
I’ve styled this taupe suede moto jacket countless ways over the years, but this may be my best look so far. I love the combination of textures and neutral tones.
When it gets colder, I can swap out the tank for a black turtleneck, and I might try it with taller shaft booties so I can wear socks. I’m thinking the Vince Henderson boots from the #NSale might work. I’ll give it a try and let you know how it looks!
