Classy Moto Jacket Outfit Ideas that Work at Any Age

A beautiful leather jacket is a worthwhile investment that you can enjoy at any age. In the last few seasons, moto-style jackets with an edgy biker vibe have been most popular. Here’s a look at the many variations on the motto theme and what to wear to master this look.



1. The Cool Black Women’s Leather Moto Jacket 

This is the jacket that instantly comes to mind when we think of the classic moto jacket. It’s tough; it’s a rocker and oh, so cool. Sometimes black leather can be a little challenging to wear after 40. Suppose black is too biker gang for you, no worries because a little less hardware and a change of color can make all the difference.  Take a look below to see what I mean.

2. The Friendly Brown Moto Leather Jacket

Brown is considered a friendly, approachable color. If you have warm (golden) skin, hair, and eyes, you will look better in a brown moto jacket vs. black jacket. That doesn’t mean you can’t pair it with something black. In fact, black + brown is a very chic combo. Tie the look together with some snake print shoes or booties. Here’s how I styled my brown leather moto jacket.

3. The Feminine Pastel Moto Jacket

If you feel your style is too feminine for a biker jacket, think again. Pastels have been huge lately, and they are drifting over to the biker jacket world. Here’s a moto-style jacket that’s not even leather. This pink moto jacket looks soft and pretty in this heavenly shade of pink, and in suede, it’s more relaxed too. Pair it with gray, a popular neutral this fall, and your favorite jeans. A wine-colored bag adds makes it less girly, more mature.

4. The Elegant Burgundy Leather Moto Jacket

Burgundy is my favorite color moto jacket. Richer than red, and not as harsh as black, Burgundy is very sophisticated and always looks classy. I like the combo of black accessories with burgundy, and a touch of white around your face lights you up. Here’s my burgundy leather moto jacket and how I styled it.

    1. Hi Linda, This jacket is a clue to Spring. I just got back from Florida and there are all kinds of pale, pinks, yellows and blues coming out. I can’t wait to dive into these fresh, feminine shades. Cheers, Deborah

  1. Love the looks. But please don’t ever call black or this look “threatening”. This stereotype translates, yes, unfortunately, to PEOPLE. (Have you watched the news lately?) Black is not threatening. Unless you’re already afraid.

  2. I really like Eddie Bauer’s Stine Leather Jacket – esp. since I got it on sale late last year for under $200! I don’t live in a very cold climate so it was the perfect choice for a nice looking but not too heavy leather jacket that goes with my very casual life style. The brown was a nice deep chocolate brown – softer than black but still deep enough to go with most outfit choices.
