If you read my previous posts, you may already noticed that I am all about comfortable and versatile. As most women I like to shop for new designs, but I have some clothing items that I can wear over and over again, and I never get tired of them – the moto style jacket is the perfect example. At times I plan to wear something different, but I grab my favorite black denim jacket anyway just before I go out. I love my jacket because I can dress it up and dress it down depending on the occasion. It seems to match many outfits, so I take it with me on every trip I go. It feels like my second skin and its definitely timeless clothing.
How to Style…
The original Ramones was designed in 1928 by Irving Schott. Thick horse leather jacket had a characteristic zip to protect motorcyclist from the wind.
The jacket was popularized by movie stars like Marlon Brando, who played Johnny Strabler in The Wild One. Ramones Jacket had become a symbol of rebellion and for a while was prohibited to wear in many American schools. Other iconic movies that associated Ramones with trouble makers are: Grease (1978), Mad Max (1979, 1981, and 1985), Eddie and the Cruisers (1983), and Terminator (1984).
