Style Refresh: Moto Jackets & Statement Necklaces


I’m such a sucker for moto jackets . . .give me all the colors, all the cuts, all the unique embellishments of zippers and collars.  Love.  They’re the perfect finishing touch to throw on over a spring dress or destroyed denim when the weather gets a bit warmer.  For now?  They’re upping my turtleneck game.  LOL yes . . . I said turtleneck game.  Because winter.  It’s cold.  And I need a way to refresh the simple jeans and turtleneck look that I’ll be rocking for weeks to come.

This is the perfect go-to look for a date night outfit that won’t leave you freezing and is super easy to throw together.


J. Crew Jeans: (Wearing 28 Petite) LOVE J. Crew’s denim

Turtleneck: (Similar) I also love the longer length of this one and it’s available in regular and petite sizes and comes in a ton of colors . . . I have it in size small and the neck is awesome because it doesn’t have a seam!

Moto Jacket (Wearing XS) Super soft and comfortable

Ankle Booties (Similar) I’m also loving these perforated lower block heeled booties . . . perfect for transitioning to spring!

Necklace: (Similar) I also love this layered necklace for a more delicate statement look.

    • YES! It’s way too cold here to just go with the moto jacket right now . . . I have a big parka that I wear outside and then I wear the moto jacket as the top layer . . . like a sweater substitute! 🙂

  1. I can’t tell if that is a faux leather moto jacket or fabric. Nordstrom says: 87% Tencel® lyocell, 10% ramie, 3% linen –which suggest fabric, but not sure. Can you explain?

  2. Does anyone know moto jackets for SUPER long torso? I love this look but I’ve basically stopped trying because anything remotely cropped hits at an absurdly high spot! Just highlighting that I realized I’m basically built like all the Pixar moms…!!! Thanks! 😀

    • Hi Ali,
      Laura did a round up on Feb. 6 on Moto jackets and one of them she included she specifically said could possibly be for a long torso. It is from Express and it is black, it is on sale right now for $129. I also to have a long torso and I commented on that particular moto jacket. Hope that helps

    • Hi Ali! I have the same absurdly long torso problem, which is why it’s so hard to find good moto jackets! But I did some research and tracked down some good options!
      1) – In love with the longer style, simple front and stretchy back panel on this real leather moto jacket/sweater hybrid. All the colors are gorgeous- I’m digging the navy & bordeaux
      2) – I’ve had great luck with the sweater/jacket hybrids, the lighter colors on this one are perfect for spring
      3) – So pretty in pink, looks like it hits below the hips
      4) – This Madewell’s one’s been on my radar since last fall – it’s longer in the front than their other ones, but more cropped in the back. Reviewers say the leather is super soft and molds to your body over time.

  3. I Love your outfits! Crazy question I love jcrew Jean too and wear same size I’m 5’7. I never thought to order petite would that solve the inseam issue with booties?? You definitely look tall. Xoxo Keep Rocking your awesome style!
