JACKETS – Motorcycling has over time become synonymous with jackets and safety wear. Styling jackets have been the easiest given the number of options available. It is not an unsaid rule of the biking world that your jacket needs to be black in colour! You can spot anything depending on your choice and availability. Trying something shimmery and having zip patterns or studs is also a good choice to establish a biker-chic image. You can add even more dimension to the look by wearing a customised t-shirt with skull patterns or anything showcasing a rugged attitude underneath the jacket. Or you can completely ditch the jacket look and go with a tank top or a corset top to look something different.

TATTOOS AND HAIR – Tying your hair up in a messy bun or leaving them rugged and flowing can present a difficult choice. However, your hairstyle should not become a hurdle on the road. Colouring the hair can also make you look a lot more appealing. Tattoos ranging from skull patterns to star designs have been known to appeal to people. If properly done, it can reflect your attitude and send some serious vibes down the spine of spectators!

JEANS – Instead of jeans, you can pull an instant badass look wearing a tight short skirt over black leggings paired with a corset. However, if you are more into denim, rugged or the ones having zip patterns seem attractive. Tight leather bottoms have been especially popular among celebrities. Even leather trousers have been making quite a rage of late. They are unparalleled in abrasion resistance and are not just a show-piece. You can give them a shot too.

SAFETY FIRST – Safety should, however, be your top priority while setting out on the road. Helmets, gloves and leg-protection gear cannot and should not be ignored. You are hugely mistaken if you think these will degrade your style even by a bit. In fact, they can enhance it manifold. Wearing gloves with designs, patterns or some kind of embellishments can make you look trendier as compared to the plain ones. Even helmets are available in such an overwhelming variety these days that you need not stick to the traditional DOT or Snell approved ones.

Rest it is up to your imagination and creativity. You can doll yourself up and reflect that inner motorcycling spirit in a way no celebrity ever has.
