How To Style Motocross
Posted on September 08 2018
It doesn’t seem often that you would look to motorbike-riding stuntmen as a source of outfit inspiration; yet, motocross has officially revved onto the fashion scene.
It all started at Zoe Jordan AW14, the designer and daughter of Formula 1 boss appropriately looks to her father’s adrenaline-fueled world for inspiration behind her collections.
This was replicated in Vetements SS16 collection, as sporty separates and accessories became the best sellers and back bone of the collection. Before fully taking off at Fenty x Puma SS18 where it was biker shorts galore, fishnet scuba t-shirts and motocross jerseys aplenty.
And here at Westgate we’re going to show you, how to incorporate a touch of the dirt track into your everyday wardrobe…
Boy Racer Accessories
The easiest method to incorporate the racer lifestyle into your look is with a bold accessory. Think boyish yet elegant; mirrored aviators and sporty sunglasses keep it cool, perfect for those looking to not take the trend overboard, while a sock-style pointed heel adds a sporty yet feminine finish to a pair of baggy panelled trousers.
For those looking to make more of a statement, checkerboard printed or leather bumbags add a hands-free and retro finish to any look. Opt for a cool printed headband or hat to finish a look. The sportier the better – don’t be afraid to try out this seasons must have, the visor. Motorbike optional.

Logomania Shirts and Jerseys
Bringing a new meaning to the term fast fashion, opt for a moto jersey or logo emblazoned top to get involved in this seasons trend. Adopt the highly sponsored look with a slimline scuba top, finished with team numbers and branded logos. Colour blocking is essential; opt for a colour palette of bold reds, blues and yellows with bonus points for a checkerboard print.

You can’t ride a motorbike without some leather, so for a subtle nod to the motocross trend try some double leather. Start with a sleek leather jacket with structured shoulders, and branding on the sleeves and finish with a pair of second skin leather trousers. Knee pads and excess zippers add to that ready to ride feel.
