What I Wore: Hello Moto

Today I bring you two looks with the Faux Leather Moto Vest.  I first posted about this vest in my Dressing Room post when I initially tried it on.  It was one of those random things I decided to try on, even though I didn't expect it to look good on me.  I didn't buy it in-store because the price was pretty steep.  Continuing to think about it, I bought it when it was on sale and have tried to wear it with varying looks since then.

You may remember seeing it with my plaid Foxcroft shirt in a recent post.  I think that look was so fun!  I love the bright colors with the vest.  When I first tried the vest on, I paired it with a striped tee that didn't fit me to my liking.  I spent quite a while looking for a similar top to recreate the look.

I found this top from Avenue online.  I couldn't believe how hard it was to find a grey and black striped top out of all the striped tops out now!  This one has a hood, so it lends itself to a more casual look.  However, I love the gradual point in front and back and the looser fit in the hips.  It is cute on its own, as well as with the vest.  The material is a stretchy knit, so it is very comfortable and easy to wear.

I added my fall/winter uniform of jeans and boots to round out the ensemble.  I felt really cute in this outfit, running errands and going out to dinner with the husband.  The vest actually kept me warm so I didn't need a jacket. (The vest is lined with a grey knit material.)

For my second look, I went for a more 90s inspired ensemble.  I bought this skater dress from ASOS Curve back in the spring/early summer.  It was a little bit tighter then, so I was hoping that when cooler weather arrived it would be cute with leggings and boots.

Once I bought the vest, I knew I had to wear it with this dress.  I thought it would be such a fun look!  It was so, so comfortable to wear!  I love the fuller skirt of the skater dress in this stretchy material.  Seriously, it is kind of like wearing pajamas.  I felt so cute and confident in this outfit, adding my rhinestone teddy bear head necklace for a bit of whimsy.

I attended a paleo cooking class that a friend of mine was teaching at our favorite local grocery store.  After the class, I was sashaying through the store with a pep in my step.  I just really loved this look!

What do y'all think of the moto vest trend?  How do you style yours?

  1. I actually wore my moto vest with this ASOS Curve Midi Dress -- I felt like the midi dress was a little frumpy, despite the obnoxious colors (it's that mid-calf length...I was stepping out of my comfort zone), so I pretty much did exactly what you did: dress, boots, moto vest, only I wore it with a bright yellow pendant necklace that UNFORTUNATELY broke (oh well, it was one of those $3 on clearance ones from LB). I want to wear it with a striped tee from Avenue and my Kiyonna tulle skirt soon...or with a black short-sleeve turtleneck sweater and my new red jeans.

  2. OH, the tulle skirt idea I can totally try. I didn't think of that! I did end up buying the LB striped tee on a sale just because I loved it so much but it is still too tight. I could tuck it into a skirt though. And the red jeans number sounds awesome!

  3. I am so on board with the moto jacket trend. I have yet to try a vest. I think it's because I had horrible try-on experiences with those puffer vests in the early 2000s, and so now I'm afraid of all vests. As I've been getting dressed to go out these past few weeks, I've realized more and more that I need a black moto jacket to finish off my looks. I have a light pink one, but it doesn't go with everything. As much as I'd like it to. lol

    I remember seeing this vest on you before. You may it look so easy and edgy. I'll try one on next time I see one in-store. I like that you're showcasing two different looks here. The first look is casual and something I'd totally wear for around the house and running errands. I think the hooded tee is perfect for pairing with the vest. Your second look reminds me of Clarissa Explains It All! I've noticed her style (and 90s style in general) becoming more and more popular. Even as a kid, I knew Clarissa was a fashionista! I think the look is super cute, and the floral print is perfect against the edgier moto vest.

    While the moto vest trend is one I've shied away from, you've definitely inspired me to try on one and give it a shot. I never thought I'd pick up an army jacket either, but I'm wearing that thing constantly!

  4. OMG it is SO Clarissa! I loved Clarissa Explains It All! I wanted a Sam to climb in my window and hang out too. lol
    I have been VERY anti-vest for quite some time now. Trying this one on was just a fluke. It was one of those days that I had extra time and grabbed some things I wouldn't normally wear to try on. Obviously, I am glad I did because I really like it. Even when things don't work out, it is still fun to try on new styles outside of your norm. I always have to remind my friends of that constantly. They complain about their fashion rut, but they refuse to try anything else on. I have to use tough love.
    Anyway, let me know if you find one you like. I kinda feel like I need a badass moto jacket too. I love your pink one. I would think it would go with most of your wardrobe! lol
