Trends: Biker Chic(k)

May 15, 2009

by Alison Feldmann handmade and vintage goods

Motorcycle fashion isn’t just for burly biker dudes. Black leather, rivets and studs have made a recent resurgence as an edgy look for women, à la Marianne Faithfull in The Girl on a Motorcycle. I’m totally digging the fringe, tough vests and fitted leather jackets. Get on your hog and ride into the horizon with these biker-inspired picks.

    Just happened to stumble upon this entry and so glad I did!! I see one of my creations amongst such gorgeous biker chic!! If it wasn't for the decision to get my license to ride and buy my first motorcycle, there would be no Sexy Skins. There is nothing like the ride, and nothing like working with, and wearing leather. LOVE it!!
