Patricia Manfield has become a bonafide It girl. She sits front row at runway shows from Versace to Missoni and is honey to the street style photo bees hovering outside. She's a style chameleon who goes old school Italian elegance to contemporary streetwear, captivating more than 200,000 Instagram followers and landing her a print editorial for Vogue China. Here, we break down an easy-to-copy look from The Atelier blogger, her twist on a classic: biker jacket with jeans and a tee.
Motorcycle jackets are a style constant, omnipresent on the street as well as on runways (Saint Laurent showed a dozen different versions of the rock 'n roll jacket this season alone). Manfield's comes from the men's section of Diesel Black Gold, giving it a cool, oversized fit. The studs lend punk-y effect which works well with her otherwise understated outfit.
Shop Motorcycle Jackets:
You can't go wrong with a plain white T-shirt and black jeans, staple pieces you likely own (and if you don't for whatever reason, we have some picks to shop below). Throw in a studded bucket bag to match your badass moto and some colorful pumps to offset the edginess.
