Even if you don't own or ride a motorcycle, you can still embrace moto chic by rocking a fashion motorcycle jacket. Most of these moto jackets are not jackets specifically-engineered for motorcycle riding. What these jackets do provide is stylish toughness. That toughness comes equally for both males and females. The distinctive style of these jackets make them wearable and chic for almost anyone. I'm discussing fashion motorcycle jackets in this blog post.
In the future, I may do a separate post on proper motorcycle wear. I may even come up with a topic more focused on motorcycle-inspired chic. For now, enjoy this blog post regarding moto jackets.
NOTE (SEP 27 2013): This post only or mostly focuses on motorcycle jackets. In preparing and editing this post, I've seen some motorcycle vests. This post may be updated in the future to include a discussion on motorcycle vests.

--- Motorcycle Jackets ---To say the least, motorcycle jackets are good jackets to consider wearing if you want something distinctive and tough. These jackets are stylish for both males and females, and there are quality moto jacket offerings for both. One can still enjoy motorcycle chic even if one doesn't ride or own a motorcycle. Because we're talking motorcycles, do not automatically assume we're discussing something like biker gang stuff or anything. A lot of motorcycle jackets offer mot-inspired chic. I am not even sure if such jackets are proper leathers for riding. Yet still, they have their style. Since these are mostly leather jackets, they will certainly keep you warm for cool/cold weather times.
Motorcycle Jackets: Males.A motorcycle jacket for a male is stylishly tough. Their tough style greatly compliments most stylish males who wear them. Many of these moto jackets are black leather ones with a handful of silvery zippers and accents. Besides these basic black ones, there are even moto jackets that come in a vast array of colors and even various patterns.
Motorcycle Jackets: Females.If you ask me, nothing defines sexy and tough for a jacket or a coat quite like a motorcycle jacket. The way a motorcycle jacket fits and is styled for a female makes them look hot. A hot-looking moto jacket can either be a jacket to cover the full lower body, or they may be a cropped moto jacket which still makes a female look hot. I am not sure if I am more attracted to the fitted nature of moto jackets or the design of moto jackets that make me like them so much on females. They are very fashionable even for petites and plus size women.
Styling Moto Jackets.A moto jacket can be easily styled with any number of jean and pant looks for both males and females. For females, certain feminine and girly tops and dresses can easily be toughened up with a great-looking moto jacket. A hot pair of riding boots or some chic tall boots are nice footwear options. I would avoid any sort of casual shoes- like flip-flop/thong sandals, certain sneakers, boat/deck shoes, and the like while wearing a moto jacket. They take away from the appeal of a moto jacket in my view.
So with this insight on motorcycle jackets, how about I give you a little more insight with pictures?
