Move over, balletcore. There’s a new trend in town with a decked-out motorcycle and a Diesel skirt set so mini Paris Hilton’s Y2K outfits would do a double take. Introducing the biker baddie: an in-your-face trending aesthetic that relies on faded leather jackets, oversize sporty shades, and distressed combat boots. It’s not just us feeling the moto trend, either. A handful of our editors’ favorite designers and retailers have begun to experiment with the grungy, chic look.
The biker trend dominated this past winter thanks to the rise of aviator jackets and distressed denim, but frankly, it shows no stops of slowing down as we head into the spring. Heavier coats and boots can be switched out for embellished flats and strappy see-through tops, proving that moto goes way beyond the cold months.
