Back-to-school means many things to many people. When I was younger it meant new school clothes, which the junior fashionista in me found thrilling. As a grown-up, the only back-to-school clothes we tend to buy are for our kids. After the clothes and school supplies and athletic fees and lunch card money, we are usually wondering how we can possibly afford to augment our own wardrobe with the pennies we have left. A few readers have asked me for the best and most affordable way to stretch their fashion dollars during the back to school season. My answer? Moto jackets!
Take almost any outfit you have been wearing during the summer, add a moto jacket and POOF – instant new fall outfit! I am so loving moto jackets right now- they add a structured edginess to even the sweetest of outfits, while still incorporating an element of casual chic. Below are a few of my favorite moto jackets for fall- all under $50 of course!
Once school starts you have to wake up an hour (or two) earlier than normal to
make heat up breakfast and ensure everyone is out the door on time. The fact that you could pull on a pair of jeans, ANY t-shirt, and a moto jacket and leave the house looking way more pulled together than you feel, that my Faking Fancy friends, is wardrobe magic. And Lord knows most of us over forty can use a lot of concealer a little magic in order to look semi-decent that early in the morning!
So the next time you are in the school drop off line and you have to jump out of the car to help little Stevie carry his 30lb science project to the curb, you can do so knowing you look hot, and not a hot mess.
You may not every get
on anywhere near a motorcycle, but you can ratchet up your mom style with a cool moto jacket nonetheless. Rock on my Faking Fancy readers, rock on!
