Inspired By: Boho Moto

Today’s street style inspiration perfectly balances elements of boho and moto-chic style while attaining that effortlessly wearable look. With winter still lingering on in most of the country, it’s a great way to pull in your favorite boho tops for spring a little early, just by adding on a few pieces.

A great way to toughen up a bohemian-inspired look is by simply adding a nice dose of leather. First, top off an airy peasant top or sheer tunic with a sleek leather moto jacket. Pair with skinny black jeans and slip on a pair of black ankle boots to take the look from hippie to full-on hottie! Finish it off with essential accessories like a wide-brim hat (to pull from that boho vibe), a cozy scarf for warmth and leather gloves for braving the last few days of winter.
