With over 7 million women motorcycle riders ready to hit the road, there’s an increase need for fashionable motorcycle jackets, helmets, gloves, and boots. Gone are the days of limited selection for female riders. Now a plethora of styles can be found to match each rider’s personality. Not only are these new items on the cutting edge of fashion, but they also provide the rider with the necessary safety that goes along with riding on two wheels.
Motorcycle jackets are becoming so fashionable these days that even celebrities are joining in on the trend. Fashion icons like Emma Watson, Rachel Bilson, and Blake Lively have been photographed wearing these edgy jackets and vests adorned with studs and other ornamentation. These ladies aren’t shy and really take the look from road to sidewalk by pairing them with maxi skirts and denim cut offs. So even if you’re not a biker, don’t be shy to try this must have look for fall.
Today’s line of motorcycle footwear allows lady riders to hop on their bike and drive to a point of destination without the need of changing into something else. The options for female motorcycle boots these days are endless. Companies are now creating boots in all lengths and heel heights, so that female riders can find a safe boot to match any outfit. Celebrities like Nicole Ritchie, Rihanna, and even our First Lady Michelle Obama have taken notice of this growing trend. These boots, often adorned with fashionable buckles, are a great way to take any outfit from casual to bold.
Don’t think that just because you’re riding in the open air that your bag can’t be pretty. There are now many options available for feminine backpacks that you wouldn’t be embarrassed to be seen wearing on and off your bike. You can opt for traditional leather backpacks or go for the increasingly popular printed nylon styles. Popular handbag designers like Coach and Burberry are making backpacks acceptable for the road to satisfy the growing number of female riders. There’s really no reason now for female riders to have to borrow their husbands’ and boyfriends’ gear to get on their bike to ride.
With all the great options that are available, ladies can make their riding experience complete, while staying fashionably elite. So as you hit the road this summer with your motorcycle jackets and other gear, be ready to see the highway into a fashion runway.
