3 Things You Should Know when Buying a Moto Jacket
Finding the right moto jacket size can be one of the hardest things to do. You may have to go from one store to other just to find the right size but, believe me, it’s worth all the trouble and wait. Ill-fitting moto jackets can make you look like a slob instead of sexy and fierce. So make sure that the moto jacket you settle for fits you to a T. Sleeves shouldn’t be too loose, shoulders shouldn’t be too broad, and the jacket itself should hug you in all the right places.
The Front Closure
One of the first things you need to consider when shopping for a moto jacket is the front closure. A jacket with a diagonal zipper is great for slimming your waist. A jacket with a straight up-and-down zipper is perfect for bustier women it’ll streamline your figure. If you want to create the illusion of curves then you need to find one with a cascade front.
After you get your hands on the perfect fitting moto jacket, you will inevitably fall in love with it and you will want to wear it with every chance you get. To make this easier and possible, choose a moto jacket in a neutral color so that mixing and matching it with other pieces in your closet would be a breeze.
