Biker Trends evolve, fade or become the standard. For example, skinny jeans have become the standard, military chic isn’t going anywhere and biker chic is still living large. Blame it on The Wild One or FX’s “Sons of Anarchy”, but black leather is a mainstay, dominating every aspect of street fashion including the music scene. It seems that the runway has caught up with this real-world infusion of dirty denim, leather, buckles and biker boots. I could tell you that the black leather moto jacket is hot right now, but I’m guessing you already know. Black is chic and Brando-inspired styles are always a sure thing. Suprisingly, it was Burberry that reclaimed the danger of the leather jacket with their silver biker masterpiece. They added quilting at the upper arm and zipper sleeves with belted tabs, slightly reminiscent of a Captain Eo Michael Jackson. I would shove an old lady for that jacket. This trend got a futuristic edge with the quilting and sequin trims, as well as the sharp, clean belted hems. Balmain definitely did it right, adding their strong shoulder or “puff sleeve” to their moto jacket. The look comes complete with a whole set of leather pants and boots. Just don’t wear them all at once… ’70s Sophisticate The vintage vibe isn’t going anyplace soon. The key look for spring is a strong ’70s essence, but make sure you cherry-pick only the sleekest, sexiest and most stylish pieces. Recent seasons tried to push over the ’20s and ’30s trends, the ’80s are waning with the threat of a comeback, but it’s certainly the 1970s that are due for a reboot. You don’t have to look like Rollergirl to pull off the look: Keep it boho and sophisticated and you can get it right. Vintage isn’t going to work unless you really believe in what you’re wearing — confidence was crucial the first time around and that hasn’t changed. Even the most laidback or demure look is going to ooze that Club 51 sexuality and fresh-found independence. It’s going to be bold and tall, floppy felt hats, glowing exotic jewels and beyond-high stacked platforms. (Google Bianca Jagger if you have questions.) Do it right with some high-waisted wide-leg pants or flares with a clean belt. The bow blouses, preferably with a billowing or bishop sleeve, are going to nail this look, especially if there’s silk or satin involved. For a double-point score, you can layer them with a long vest or beaded necklace. And if you’ve been religious about your Pilates, treat yourself with a pair of hot pants. ’60s Ladylike “Mad Men” continues to flex its might, inspiring an entire spring trend: The ’60s Lady reigned supreme with inspirational looks from Louis Vuitton and Prada. Both houses channeled their inner Betty Draper with long hemlines, circle skirts and cinched waists. The prim and proper continued when Marc Jacobs presented his look, complete with kitten heels and bobby socks. The hemlines and shapes could be hard to work with — we’re the generation of impossibly low jeans and standing-room-only miniskirts. The long skirts, tentatively called “granny skirts” (don’t panic), are going to work best with a fitted, tight top. You can stay authentic and include a pair of ballet flats (hope you didn’t throw away last year’s favorite pair) or a dainty pair of kitten-heel slingbacks.
