Embroidered Moto Jackets to Buy This Fall


Though far from the typical desert-chic style, I’ve always appreciated a good moto jacket. I picked up a stunning embroidered moto jacket by BLANK NYC at my local Marshalls recently and can’t get enough of it. The best part is, it was only $80 (retail $175)! The stud detailing adds a nice edgy touch, while the embroidery balances the look out with the perfect amount of femme florals and a splash of color. If you’re looking to invest in an embroidered moto jacket this fall, check out some of my favorites below!

Here’s a little not-so-secret backstory: I got up at 5 AM to shoot this outfit because I knew that it was going to be way too hot for me to shoot past sunrise hour. It is still far from leggings & layering season in Palm Springs. Down into the golf course we live on, there’s a little underpass that sort of works as a “grungy location” which was what I was going for. It’s the grungiest you’ll get in our neighborhood, at least. Luckily, since the spot is practically outside our house, it was a pretty short bike ride to get to it. Still, by the time we got there, it was already at least 85 degrees. I was uncomfortably sweating in this heavy jacket, long sleeve shirt underneath, leggings, boots, and a hat. But I’d have to say that it was worth it. This is one of my favorite looks to wear in autumn, especially when I’m traveling outside of the desert.

My go-to outfit is a classic all-black look when it comes to styling moto jackets. Okay, maybe throw in a punch of olive in there too πŸ˜‰ How do you like to wear yours?

    1. Right?! I don’t think I could live without a Marshalls since the shopping scene (at malls) isn’t the greatest out here in the desert. I can always count on Marshalls to come through with the best trends and styles! Thank you so much, Christina!

  1. You got that jacket fo $80?! That’s amazing! Your style is always so effortless and on point girl. Love that pop of olive green too. That Saint Laurent moto jacket has been on my wishlist for a while now…

    1. Yesss! I couldn’t believe it either! The jacket is really well-made and on the heavier side. It’s definitely one of my favorite scores from Marshalls recently. You’re so sweet – thank you Eileen! I would love to have that Saint Laurent moto jacket in my closet too πŸ˜‰

  2. I love the jacket, and with fall weather coming, it truly is perfect for many outfits! I’m going to look into getting this or something similar soon!

  3. Wow, can not believe how hot it is for you! But I think you found the perfect spot for this look. I love how edgy it is. Those are some killer boots too!

    1. Tell me about it! The storm weather has arrived this week though – we got some rain this morning and cooler temps. I’m a happy camper. The boots were only $8 on sale at H&M… got them early this year :O

  4. I am dying right now because I have this EXACT moto jacket that I paid full price for at Nordstrom. =) I’m glad you got it at such a discount. I would never guess this was Palm Springs from the total LA city vibes. I love the moody shots and it’s perfect for fall. I am totally going to bust out my leather moto now too and copy this outfit! xoxo, Christine

    1. Omg! I am sorry to hear that babe! But it is a great jacket and totally worth full price πŸ˜‰ I just got lucky that they have them in stock now at Marshalls for only $80 – and even more shocking was that they had one in my size lol. That’s pretty rare! Yeah, it’s hard to find these types of settings out in the desert – will probably shoot all my “city vibes” looks here because it’s easy to get to and just a 5 minute bike ride from my house. Can’t wait to see how you style your moto jacket darling! xo

  5. I think that my favorite one is the one that you’re wearing! So cute! I love all these amazing picks! I need an update on my motto jacket this year!

  6. Wow, those jackets are so beautiful and I really love the style of it. I will share this with my sister and I am sure she will love it.

  7. I really LOVE the A.L.C. one with the flowers on it, that is so gorgeous! You look awesome in them too. I think I’d want my name or a nickname on it as well as the other embroidery. SO pretty!

    1. Isn’t it pretty? I want all of them! Haha seriously hooked to these jackets after getting one. I’d also love one with my initials or something on it too – a fun way to personalize my jacket! Great idea, darling! xx

  8. I’m a fan of a monochromatic look paired with a Moto jacket, and can definitely recommend the Blank NYC line as well! I have two jackets from them and the quality is fantastic for the price point. Hoping it cools off soon for you! Or you go on a nice vacay πŸ˜‰

    1. I don’t wear black all too often out here in the desert because it’s way too hot to do that, but I had to make an exception (and get up really early) for this look hahaha. I’m a fan of Blank NYC too!

  9. I love embroidered moto jackets. It’s such a great combo of edgy and feminine. Your pics look great! I think you achieved your desired aesthetic.

  10. Ahh I snagged an embroidered moto last year and I still love it just as much. They’re such a fun twist on a classic style!

  13. My boyfriend and I were just talking about cool leather jackets and your post came out! Talk about coincidence! The cost of such leather jackets varies so much! goodness! Love yours though~

  14. This jacket is so awesome! I own a similar one and I wear it when I want to feel bad ass or I’m going on a motorcycle ride with my husband. I feel the pain of shooting in the heat and think you’re super smart to get up early to shoot!

  15. Love all of your outfits! This jacket and the other styles you show are absolutely gorgeous! Love them all.
