Would You Wear… a Quilted Biker Jacket?

If you thought quilting was only for your grandmother’s housewares and your dream Chanel bag, think again. The most stylish biker jackets this season boast the addition of quilted panels (if not entirely a quilted pattern). ¬†Whether your style is girly or grunge, adding a quilted biker jacket to your closet is a great idea for fall and winter.

Celebrities like Miranda Kerr (above-left) and Kristen Stewart (above-middle) have already been seen rocking the look. In both cases, they look surprisingly laid-back in their tough jackets (we believe they’re the same one by Balenciaga). Personally, we love Miranda’s look the best. It’s a classic outfit with a touch of edginess.

Here is how we would wear it…

    Where is the quilting on the brown jacket?

    I would totally wear this! And I have, too, I bought one from H&M in August and have loved it. It’s gorgeous with dresses, shorts, jeans… You name it.

    Ashley – It’s hard to see from the pic but the side panels and shoulders are quilted – kind of a fun take on the trend.

    Johanna – I got a faux leather one last year (I think from Express?) and I love it too! Goes with everything and the quilting actually makes it a little chicer I think.

    Love this! Makes leather jackets so much more chic for sure.

    Love love love this ensemble you picked here! I would pair the jacket with a dress as well, I’m into the edgy fem look and I think you captured it perfectly here :)

    They are not Burberry. They are actually Balenciaga.

    I wouldn’t, unless they came in slightly different styles? Not because of the quilting, but because of the cut-I’m 6′ tall and apple shaped, so I tend to look strange in boxy jackets and better in blazers or other tailored waist style ones, to compensate for my lack of natural curves.

    Johanna, I bought one from H&M this summer too! It’s been my go-to fall-to-winter jacket. I lean towards a pretty edgy, androgynous look in general, and the jacket goes with absolutely EVERYTHING.

    I don’t like the quilted look but the jacket you suggested is the best one I have seen so far

    LC – Thank you for the correction! You’re right; wrong B-brand, they are Balenciaga.

    I love this. My leather moto jacket has got quilting on the sides and elbows – it’s a cute detail and also makes the jacket much more comfortable as it gives more movement.
