Knit Moto Jacket

Maurices, a clothing company that offers budget conscious trendy apparel, asked me to review a piece from their website, and I chose this plum colored knit moto jacket.

It's definitely my favorite when more structured pieces are done in knit fabrics, because you get the tailored look while still feeling like you are wearing a sweatshirt. (Why sacrifice comfort for style when you can have both, right?) I love all the zipper detailing, but in the case of the pockets, they are a facade. There are no actual pockets, which is sited as being a feature in the web description, but in my opinion, is the only downfall to the jacket.

I think the plum color is perfect for fall, and works so well to liven up neutrals like black, brown, and grey, but of course its always fun to go with the opposite end of the color wheel and pair it with neon green.

Ooh I love that jacket and this color combo!! I also love knit jackets like this--they have an edgy look but they're soft and cozy!

Style Journey said...

Oh I am loving this color combo! What a great way to bring neon into fall pairing it with the plum jacket. I really like Maurices, I just forget about it sometimes since it's a little roadtrip to get to a store near us. Heather

The zipper detail on the sleeve makes this jacket really special. Good pick. I love the vibrant color combination you chose to showcase the jacket. As always, beautiful job, Lyddie.

That moto jacket is amazing, especially in that color... can see wearing that all year.

Frannie Pantz said...

I have several things from Maurice's and I am actually surprised by the quality. It is a lot better than one would expect I've found anyway. This knit moto jacket is a great piece and, like you say, perfect for fall. I love it with the unexpected neon!

Alexa said...

I totally love the color of the jacket, which is stunning against your Equipment shirt! No pockets is kind of sad :( I do really like the jacket though!
