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 😉 How do you like to wear yours?
Marshalls is THE BEST!! Love a good deal (& how you styled this jacket!).

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!
Love the look you styled!
Thank you Michelle xoxo
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…
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 😉
Gorgeous pictures. Love this jacket on you. xx
Thank you Nina! xoxo
Love the look – very appropriate for fall + your hair is gorgeous!
Thanks Annabel! 🙂
I LOVE leather jackets, and I’m obsessed with all of these! I’ve always been into leather jackets and boots, so I’m living for your outfit. Also your dedication to get the shot in this crazy heat is applause worthy girl!

So glad you love these picks babe! It was super hot last week but this week is supposed to cool down, so I’m stoked about that 😉
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!
Thank you Ashley! I hope you’ll be able to find some jackets you love 🙂
Super cute! I love moto jackets. Perfect for every season! 🙂
Thanks Sally! I wish I could wear moto jackets all year-round but summers are unbearably hot here hahaha
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!
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
I am a huge fan of motor jackets because I love how badass it makes you look. I also am digging the embroidery features so thanks for sharing 🙂
I totally agree with you, Mariann! xx
Your moto jacket is so pretty! I love your outfit. 🙂
Thank you Jennifer! xoxo
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
Omg! I am sorry to hear that babe! But it is a great jacket and totally worth full price 😉 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
Moto Jackets are a big yes!! It turns any outfit stylish and edgy right away.
I couldn’t agree more, Candace! Happy Friday! xo
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!
Aw thanks! I love the stud detailing on the one I got 🙂
these jackets are so fun! love the additional flare!
Thank you Tara! So glad you like my picks! xo
Wow! absolutely love the jackets and you styled them so well.
I love these jackets! Such beautiful embroidery!
Embroidery adds such a nice touch! 🙂
I love moto jackets, and especially embroidered moto jackets! Such a fun added detail, and can’t wait to bust mine out for Fall!
cute & little
Yes indeed! I’m so excited that it’s finally cooling down so that I can wear layers like this more often hehe
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.
Thank you for sharing, Diana! Have a great weekend xo
Uou. Great pictures and, great advices. I just love the idias, what better whay than go to work on bike and, do it in a sexy whay 🙂 Great post
Hahaha thank you!!
I really like the way these look – not sure I would ever wear them though…
Why not?! Haha I think you’d rock an embroidered moto jacket! xo
Omg these jackets are EVERYTHING! I seriously love them. So cute!
Thanks Megan! So glad you love them!
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!
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
Oh I love this trendy take on a classic piece!
Thank you Deborah! xo
That is a really gorgeous jacket and you look great!
Thank you so much, Emily! Happy Friday! x
Fantastic jacket! it looks so chic on you, so edgy and perfect for fall!
Thanks Lyosha! I am excited for fall!
These jackets are really cool. They look great on you.
Thank you so much Monidipa!
I love a good denim jacket and this is gorgeous. I love how you styled it.
These are so cute. A perfect look for the fall season!
Thanks Hannah! I totally agree!
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 😉
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!
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.
Couldn’t agree more Christa! Thank you so much!
I love this so much! I can’t get over all of the cute moto jackets we’re seeing this season!
Same here girl! xx
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!
Yessss! I totally agree! xo
These jackets are absolutely stunning! I am a sucker for motto jackets
I am with you on that one!
That jacket is STUNNING!!! I love the floral detail on the back! Beautiful 😘🌸😘🌸
Thank you darling!
Embroidered and patchwork detail jackets are in right now, and I’m loving it! The back detail of the one you are wearing is super cute, and love all the other selections 🙂
Yesssss! I am too! Thanks Samantha!
I love leather jackets. Such a classic fall piece, and super versatile too. Looks amazing on you dear, so edgy!
Jessica | notjessfashion.com
Thank you Jessica!
I actually like the pants and shirt you’re wearing under the jacket more!
Hahaha the basics do complete the outfit after all, right? 😉
I never feel edgy enough to pull this off but I’m kind of here for these!!
I am usually not one to wear the edgy style either but I just had to for this look and for the beginning of fall! xx
Good look, sharp style. I can see the appeal for these.
Thank you Blair 🙂
Love your pictures and how you styled this jacket! So beautiful and such a unique piece!
Thanks Julia! I appreciate it!
Wowwww! So many good choices! I have one similar to yours and I find myself wearing it all the time! I love the way you styled yours as well!

Ahhh I hope you can find this exact one I have! It’s such a steal and a great quality jacket.
Love the jacket and how you styled it! Your photos from your urban photo shoot are amazing!
Thank you Kristy! I don’t do urban often because there aren’t a whole lot of urban settings out here, so I appreciate your feedback!
These jackets are so stunning and dashing. Looks so amazing. You look awesome in these jackets. I love to buy these.
Thanks Corina! Hope you find one that you love!
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~
That’s amazing babe! I’m glad that the timing worked out 😉
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!
Thanks Lauryn! I wish I had a motorcycle to go along with this outfit! Lol it would be perf 😉
Love all of your outfits! This jacket and the other styles you show are absolutely gorgeous! Love them all.
It looks great on you! And such an autumn inspiration! 🙂
Thanks Miljana! xx
Loving this Moro jacket adds a fun rugged feel to any outfit
Right? Haha I feel like usually my style is a lot girlier but I love an edgy look once in a while too!
I love this jacket! I didn’t know I needed an embroidered moto jacket but now I do! So cute 🙂

This is not my look, although I do like the embroidered back, but it certainly looks stunning on you! And you’re right, the location really works with the outfit.
Thank you so much!
