The moto trend was just kicking off again during this post here. Since then, many brands have been dropping their takes on the trend left and right. From luxe styles from brands like Balmain and BLK DNM, to budget friendly styles by BLANK NYC and Ditto as well as styles in between; there are styles for everyone at any price range to try out.
Moto jeans have made quite the return this season in many new takes. Whether it be simply embellished with zippers from Anine Bing, or full on padded details at the knees from J Brand and Hudson, to the classic moto styles from James Jeans, they have all released their new takes on the season’s top trend. From denim to leather, here are all of our choices.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was spotted catching a flight out of Los Angeles at LAX Airport. The model/actress pulled out her Pierre Balmain Zip Skinny jeans to pair with some IRO boots and a Gucci bag.
It’s great to see Rosie back in these jeans. They are one of my favorite pair of jeans that I have seen her in and, of course, because I am obsessed with bleached washes right now. Even with the strong details, I find these to be a timeless and versatile pair. You can click here to purchase Pierre Balmain from Shopbop.
Here is my third and final look from the Style Lab at Firenze4Ever with LuisaViaRoma. These photos were shot inside a penthouse which was absolutely beautiful and so much cooler in there than it was outside! I went for something a little more classic with this look, something that you could easily wear on a casual Sunday while still looking put together and like you made an effort.
I started out with these Pierre Balmain distressed skinny jeans which I thought were really pretty. I hadn’t ever tried the brand before, so I thought it was a good opportunity to do so. I will say that they ran small though, these are a 28 I am wearing and they are still really tight. The denim is a lot thicker than most designer jeans at the moment as well, they are a lot like old school Diesel jeans as they don’t have a big amount of stretch to them either. The inseam is also very long so I had to bunch them up at the ankles. I do like the unfinished hem though, I’ve noticed quite a few jeans at the moment with raw edges. They also looked nice on the butt and quite flattering. I paired the jeans with an Equipment silk satin blouse in Blue as I liked the colour with the denim. For the accessories, I went with a Mulberry Mini Alexa in Oak as it’s an easy bag for errands and a pair of Alexander McQueen Sequined Skull loafers in Navy as they are comfortable and incredibly easy to walk in, yet still edgy and stylish.
You can see the very first LuisaViaRoma post I made by clicking here (with information on behind the scenes) and you can also see my Style Lab 1 and Style Lab 2. Which outfit is your favourite out of the 3? Since this is the last of my styling lab posts, I want to say a huge thank you to LuisaViaRoma for inviting me, I had an amazing time there! I might make a final post with the closing party soon as well.
