5 Pink Moto Jackets We’re Sweet on

Words by Jody Hume | 8.7.14

A motorcycle jacket is up there with the Burberry trench when it comes to iconic outerwear that’s at once effortless and the height of chic. With structured quilting, lace-up details, tough hardware and zippers everywhere, they’re not exactly known for being demure or feminine. But in pink? The quintessential biker piece is surprisingly fresh done in soft shades that marry punk edge and girly allure.

Our Production & Copy Editor (and resident moto jacket enthusiast) Emily Patz usually opts for classic black or minimal white in a leather jacket, but she agreed to give our favorite blush-tone versions a spin. Says Style Director Molly Thompson, “There was a lot of pink fur on the runways for fall, which is hard to wear everyday. The moto jacket you can wear daily with anything. Treat pink as a neutral!”
