8 Fierce Ways to Wear Your Moto Jacket

Lately, when we’re in a tomboy mood, we stand in front of our closets and try to channel Aya Kanai. And then, with a little luck, greatness ensues because Aya makes us remember that cultivating boyish vibes doesn’t have to mean choosing drab colors or plain-Jane silhouettes.

That’s one reason the fashion director at Seventeen and Cosmo has us totally smitten with her style. Tough rocker staples meet playful graphics meet bold colors meet classic sneakers meet luxe extras. There’s so much in the mix that there’s no mistaking her for any other editor out there today.

Inspired by her incredible jacket collection, we’ve designed eight outfit ideas around one of Aya’s key staples—the classic leather moto jacket. Scroll down to take a page out of her style playbook, whatever the occasion.
