You don't need a motorcycle to look like you mean business. And nothing says "don't mess" like a tough leather look. For this ensemble, we styled a quilted Topshop moto jacket ($360 at Topshop) with a simple circle skirt ($100 at Topshop) and comfy lace-up oxfords from American Apparel ($62 at American Apparel). For a touch of contrasting texture, we added Isabel Marant's violet woven tee ($300 at Net-a-Porter).
Raquel Allegra's black leather sheath ($615 at Net-a-Porter) calls for a suitably edgy handbag like Zara's zippered black satchel ($159 at Zara). Modern cut-away Topshop pumps ($136 at Topshop) and a braided rope necklace ($7.80 at Forever21) keep vibe from feeling too punk-rock.
A casually cool denim dress ($130 at Topshop) pairs perfectly with Karl Lagerfeld's rock n' roll moto vest ($810 at Net-a-Porter). For softness, we added a frayed woven scarf from Jardin des Orangers ($139 at MyTheresa), and Repetto's low suede booties ($159 at LaGarconne) will keep your feet comfy even if you're stomping all over the city.
Marni's pale pink collared shirt ($691 at MyTheresa) adds a girly touch to Phillip Lim's smart leather skirt ($695 at LaGarconne). For a touch of bling, we added a glitzy pink bracelet from J.Crew ($118 at J.Crew) and pointy printed t-straps ($275 at J.Crew).
A preppy Carven blouse with a contrasting collar ($337 at MyTheresa) feels unexpected with Malene Birger's slouchy leather trousers ($895 at Net-a-Porter). For extra height, we added Topshop's low leather sandals ($110 at Topshop), while Kelly Wearstler's bright printed scarf ($275 at Net-a-Porter) picks up the baby blue of the shirt collar.
