OK, fine, it’s not exactly fall weather yet, but we’re officially over the summer sundresses and on to … moto jackets. Since there are tons of different kinds, we got three members of our Style Council to reveal their favorite ones — then tell us how they like to wear them. Scroll down to get some serious moto inspo.

Jamie Chung: I love my my faux-snakeskin burgundy Aryn K moto jacket. I’m wearing it with just-weathered skinny jeans, a loose tank and Zara heels. I love this look because it’s simple at first, but then the faux snakeskin jacket really takes it up a notch. I can’t wait to rock this outfit when I’m out with my girlfriends!

Rachael Taylor: My favorite moto jacket is my Theyskens’ Theory one. I’m wearing it with Levi’s jean shorts, a black top and an Alexander Wang cross-body bag. It’s great because I always try to throw something feminine into the mix when I’m wearing a moto jacket — and the little Peter Pan collar on the shirt adds that softness. This jacket is also great for running around Chicago, where I live. It’ll bring me from day to night: I can explore the city when it’s light out, then hit the amazing bars and galleries in my neighborhood when the sun goes down — all without changing!

Nikki Reed: My moto jacket is by Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet. I wear it with ripped jean shorts, a flowy scarf and this cowboy hat. I’m obsessed with this jacket because it’s so versatile! I’ve probably worn it 100 times, to 100 different events, with 100 different outfits. I can wear it over a fancy dress for a party, or I can pair it with more casual items for a less-done-up look.

Louise Roe: Ella Moss made my moto jacket, and this is my happy outfit — I’m a big fan of head-to-toe prints! And then, I matched my jacket and shoes to one of the vibrant colors in the print. It’s a simple formula that guarantees an eye-catching look! I think it’s best to wear to a cocktail party or to dinner with friends. That’s because the moto jacket covers up my midriff when I want it to, so I don’t feel too exposed. I could wear it to work, too, but for a meeting, I’d switch out the crop top for a chambray shirt, buttoned up to the top and tucked in.”
