Motocross Trend

Bikers have long served as style inspiration for fashion folk. A motorcycle jacket is considered a necessity, not an option. But lately the obsession has shifted more toward motocross. Instead of all-black everything, motocross often requires pops of bright colors, especially when it comes to jackets. (Frequently teamed with matching, equally colorful pants.) Since paying homage to the sport usually involves lots of leather, both real and faux, it's well-suited to colder temps.

Now you don't have to embrace the mania from head to toe. Simply slipping on a race-worthy jacket is more than sufficient. Luckily, it's almost a certainty you'll be able to track one down in your favorite shade. Plus, just like your typical motorcycle jacket, these coverups have real staying power. You can even swap out a sweater and wear your favorite inside instead. Sporting a pair of paneled trousers solo also nods to the movement that's still gaining momentum. Of course, you can rock a full suit if you so choose. Even complete with biker boots.

You aren't limited to jackets and colorblock pants, however. Now you can find everything from jeans to shirts to bike(r) shorts that don't look out of place trackside. The ever increasing variety makes introducing the trend into your everyday life pretty seamless. They also offer a more subtle take on the trend so you won't feel like a wannabe.

Another big plus? You don't have to go designer. Even though many a designer has leaned into the craze. In fact, the vast majority of our picks come from lower-cost retailers. Think Urban Outfitters, Free People, Mango and Steve Madden. Sure, you can drop some serious cash on Jimmy Choo's studded, over-the-knee boots or on a butter yellow jacket from KNWLS. Maybe you should just put them on your holiday wish list you plan on sharing with friends and family and stick with the more affordable avenues. Totally your call.
