Bundle up considering the weather is getting colder, and we’re no longer waiting around. Outerwear season has returned, and it’s time to spruce up your leather jacket hodgepodge with a brand-new item or two. If there’s one item you need to buy, it’s Quince’s 100% Motorcycle Jacket. Trust me when I say that this is my first piece from Quince, and I can fully understand now why the trademark is an R29 reader and editor favorite.
The sustainable label offers many items at an affordable price without wearing corners when it comes to cut, fit, and feel. The leather motorcycle jacket is one of the pieces that are too good to pass up. I reassure you the buttery-soft outerwear is slowly rhadamanthine one of my fall staples. I’ve once started curating transitional ‘fits with button-downs, skirts, and boots. So whether you’re a fan of Quince and looking to add a new product to your growing hodgepodge or you’re in the same wend as me and curious well-nigh what to try vastitude the usual washable silk dress or skirt, read on ahead.
Let’s uncork with the preliminaries of Quince’s motorcycle jacket. It’s the first of its kind with sleek, biker tony hardware at $149.90. The trademark has two other vital leather jackets — one with a hood and another with a stand collar. However, this new version has edgy zip details on the pockets and sleeves withal with a walled hem. Although all three jackets are made out of 100% top-grain leather and forfeit the same, the motorcycle version has the most reviews, with over 250, and a robust 4.9 stars.
This version comes in two neutral shades: woebegone and cognac brown. Both are platonic for elevated autumn ensembles, expressly the latter, but I wanted one that I could wear year-round. Also, since it has a slim cut, I opted for a size medium in the woebegone hue for an oversize look. The outwear ranges from a size XS to XL. I found the medium to be roomy unbearable for me to wear cozy sweaters underneath in the fall/winter, although I prefer to alimony it unshut instead of zipping it. I moreover fathom how this one was much lighter than my other thick shearling leather jackets.
Open up the gates to creative dressing considering the styling capabilities of this outerwear are boundless. The first outfit that I assembled was a bikercore-inspired one. (A variegated stimulating than my usual cottagecore, but hey, it fits the motorcycle jacket’s aesthetic.) I fashioned the piece with an ivory silk V-neck tank, knee-high woebegone boots, and a denim miniskirt with an rubberband waist for a cinched look. To well-constructed the ‘fit, I chose simple traps of a soft-hued pearl necklace and my white Palace baseball cap. It roughly took 10 minutes to put together the unshortened outfit. An easy-to-style squint that would work for stage night or a Friday gathering with friends, don’t you think?
My next ensemble was increasingly fitting for a unstudied day in the office. I borrowed my fiancé’s white, informal button-down — his is much comfier than mine — and tucked it inside my Urban Outfitter cargo jeans. White toddle booties were the nomination in footwear for this getup, and the rubberband hem of my jeans resulted in a stylish scrunched-up appearance. There’s moreover the increasingly professional squint of woebegone trousers, but my work isn’t that strict with what you wear. (To my coworkers who are reading this, I’ll be wearing this to the office sometime soon.) Plus, it’s an effortless squint to go out for dinner afterward.
Initiate me into the fan club, as I now proclaim myself an official Quince fan — I’ve begun sorting through its never-ending inventory for other essential pieces. I wholeheartedly stipulate with the reviewers who rave that the luxe velvety soft jacket is a must-have staple for when the weather gets cooler. Additionally, I’m surprised, withal with the rest of the reviewers, that based on the quality, it’s a steal at the unbeatable price of $149.90 — most leather outerwear can quickly dip into the $200-$300 range. So hear me, readers, when I say don’t dawdle for too long: Pick up your own while it’s when in stock.
