The Biker Trend Hits The Runway Road

The motorcycle jacket has been cool item for decades and this year, this item was embraced by designers as an important look for both their men's and women's collections. Designers such as Belstaff, Fausto Puglisi, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Burberry Brit and Richard Nicoll included the biker trend in their recent Fall/Winter and Spring/Summer runway collections.

 

The Biker Trend For Men

For men this key item has become a staple and is being worn and merchandised with just about every type of garment. It can be worn as a casual look with jeans and a tee shirt or dressed up with trousers and a shirt and tie for a more formal look. There are more color and fabric options available and the styling has also evolved.

The Biker Trend For Women

For women there are even more choices and biker jackets are available in every color and a plethora of fabrics. Updated styling details include all manner of studs, printed options and new piecing designs. The biker trend even extends to denim and pants to incorporate a total look.

No longer satisfied with the traditional black leather staple, designers have embraced bright pop colors such as red, pink and orange and embellished this item with metal studs, buckles and zippers. Quilted design details are also important and the newest incarnations are the various printed designs that reflect the current print-driven trend cycle.
