Function: Best Riding Jackets
When you are heading off to a ride, we know you want a leather jacket that is both stylish and durable. But where do you start?
If you are wondering if leather motorcycle jackets are safe the answer is yes. Durable leather jackets provide a layer of protection for you – the thicker, the better. Some of the safest motorcycle jackets are thick (and heavy) to help withstand abrasion. In addition to thickness, check the safety labeling on your jacket. Leather motorcycle jackets and clothing are subject to destruction testing to determine their durability. Check the inside label - if you see a ‘CE’ (European Conformity), you know you are good to go.
Fashion: How to Style a Leather Jacket
When it comes to a leather jacket, function is important but that does not mean style has to be compromised. Keep up with leather jacket trends while staying true to your own style.
First, let’s figure out how a leather jacket should fit. When you put on the jacket the shoulders seam should line up with the tips of your shoulders. Then, stretch out your arms to see if the cuffs line up with your wrists. If these measurements are in place, then you are in business. When it comes to the torso, that’s personal preference. From relaxed styles to fitted scuba jackets, here is where you can show off your personal style.
Once you have found a fashionable moto jacket with the perfect fit, next you’re probably asking, “how do I wear it?”. You’re in luck because a solid leather jacket is one of the most versatile pieces in your wardrobe. For a casual look, wear your leather jacket with a basic tee, your favorite jeans, and sneakers or boots. Leather jackets can also be dressed up by throwing it over a collared shirt or blouse, or even a dress to add an edgy twist on your typical ‘night out’ outfit. Don’t be afraid to take your time finding the just the right jacket for you – when it fits right and you’ve explored different ways to style it, it’s sure to be your next go-to item!
