The Not Leather Moto
Sometimes when I order clothes, I never really know what to *expect* – read: things are not always as they appear. The not leather moto was the happy exception to this. I was aware that it isn’t leather but I had no idea it was made of a thick-ish foam material. In retrospect, the name “scuba moto” should have been a dead giveaway. Like they say, hindsight is 20/20. However, it’s warm enough to wear in the winter, an unexpected but delightful feature. Here’s how I styled the not leather moto:
MIXING PINK WITH RED
If there is one thing The Pretty Secrets is about, it’s not following so called sartorial “rules.” If there are any fashion don’ts out there, rest assured I’ll be doing them. ALL of them, including wearing pink and red together on every other day than Valentine’s Day. Maybe even Valentine’s too. As I’ve mentioned before, when I have pink hair, I don’t limit myself to a specific appropriate colour palette. If you’re curious about that, check my post about What to Wear When You Have Pink Hair. This version of my pink hair was done by the talented hair magician Patricia at The Weekly.
The jacket is a statement piece, no argument there but it doesn’t have to be the solo focus. One way to balance the outfit out is to add a few tastefully quirky additions. A zany sock, a pastel suede pair of vans, or even a giant hat. Remember: a casual look doesn’t have to be boring.
I have expounded countless times on the importance of a comfortable pair of denim. Say hello to my mom jeans from Frank & Oak. They are tight in the right spots but also have enough room in them to allot for a pair of long johns. I live in Canada after all; layering is important.
