I’ll Have What She’s Having: Penelope Cruz Glams Up Biker Chic

Penelope Cruz at the 47th Annual New York Film Festival for her film

How to wear a biker jacket and look chic, that’s the question of the day!

The iconic biker jacket always conjures up images of edgy, care-free style. What to wear to a formal but not fussy event can be tricky.

Penelope Cruz seamlessly masters biker chic in an off-handed wearable glam way that is very European and quite simple to pull off. Take note!

First off, authentic biker gear can get a bit too tough so opt for more stylized designer versions of the look that have the same edge with the addition of a fabulous and flattering cut.

Think of your moto jacket as a layering piece and try a zippered vest under a soft jacket, like Penelope did or wear your jacket under a loose-fitting coat with the collar and hardware showing.

Mix and match hard and soft elements but keep to a monochromatic color palette. Penelope adds her moto style to a slinky steel gray fishtail gown for a look that’s very textural yet clean. The best part, all the layers of the look can be worn so many different ways for an amazing breathe of versatility.

Smokey eyes and slightly undone hair keep the look modern and avoid that early 80′s feel.

There you have it!

There are stylized moto jackets and vests in every price point. Take a look at these:
