Two trends have been everywhere this year: zip-up leather toppers (see: here, here and here) and fancy sweatshirts (see: here, here and every staffer at People StyleWatch on a Friday). Well, those two of-the-moment tops have combined forces to create the moto-sweatshirt — and we might never take it off.
As always, if you’re a first-time Joyus shopper and you enter STYLE15 at checkout, you can get this Blank NYC jacket for 83 bucks.
The story in the video (about this editor spotting a woman on the subway platform wearing this zip-up, running over to her and asking where she got it) is totally true. It was love at first sight — and our obsession hasn’t waned since.
We’re wearing ours with black pencil skirts and tucked-in tees, as well as on the weekends with jeans. And the design fitted enough that you can wear it under a faux fur vest or a warm winter jacket.
If you were lucky enough to be gifted cash over the holidays, we’d highly recommend unloading some of it on this Blank NYC jacket-meets-sweatshirt. You’ll wear it all winter and through this spring. Then when you break out the top again next fall and realize it’s a classic enough style that it’ll never go out of fashion, you’ll be so glad you ordered one.
