With the debut of the Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibit at the Met, I have had motorcycle jackets on my mind lately. Nothing says "punk," after all, like a great moto-cut topper complete with studs. Right now, plus size brands are offering cool interpretations of the look in unexpected fabrics like lace and terry—a far cry from your usual leather! The Simply Be metallic jacket I am wearing to the left is not only a showstopper, but is also comfortable and lightweight. A statement piece like this can easily be dressed up with a bodycon skirt or made casual with a pair of black skinny jeans and Chelsea boots. Moto vests are another great, simple way to get the look. I love pairing an unexpected moto vest with a flirty floral dress or maxi for an instant rock ‘n’ roll twist. Tip: Playing with a more feminine fabric such as tweed can be a great way to add a girly touch to an edgy cut.
