I was very much looking forward to this blog post and photo shoot! I had the distinct honor of shooting with the fabulous Noelle and we were able to shoot on her husband’s kick-ass 2017 Fatboy Low Harley Davidson motorcycle. I have always described myself as a rough-around-the-edges dapper hombre. So being able to use a motorcycle as a prop was exciting to me. Although when I was much younger I did own a small motorcycle and riding it was quite exhilarating. It was that “free” feeling that one should experience at least once in their lifetime. The biker inspired look has remained true to its origins on the open roads. Biker inspired fashion is a combination of edgy accessories, dark clothing and of course the leather jacket. The leather jacket has become synonymous with bike culture due to its ability to stand up against the long road home. You should use your imagination and creativity when attempting to pull off this edgy look. From a trendy rebellious look to a more rocker biker chic ensemble. There are no etched in stone rules to follow as well. As you can see in the images below, I incorporated a leather biker jacket with a more polished finished look. As I mentioned earlier I like to keep it dapper but with a little edge. At the end of the day you should pick what you are comfortable with and let your personality guide you. I am aware that the expense of having to buy a leather jacket can be costly but no need to fret these days since you can find the biker edge at any price point and retail front. Just remember you don’t really need the two-wheeled motorized sexy machine to pull off this sexy look, however you do need the leather jacket and the confidence to look badass wearing it!
