HOW TO WEAR MOTOCROSS (LIKE AN ASOSER)

By Maybelle Morgan, September 1, 2017

So maybe you’ve never done a halfpipe jump before, but right now, we are crushing hard on the motocross trend — which has seen a revved-up '80s-style resurgence. Checkered flag print, acid shades and bold logos galore, see how the ASOS team are going full speed ahead…

Hello moto

The easiest way to dip into the trend? A skate-cool jersey shirt with bright paneling and logo detail. Make it more daytime friendly like Anna by tucking it into a raw-edge denim mini and finish off the look with some casj Converse.

Double line

Proof that motocross-inspired gear can look sleek AF? Ludovica with these tapered pants with sports-tipping and colorblock detail. The key is all in the material. Opt for satin pants, a dressier silk shirt and layers of gold chokers to up the glam-factor, but keep the look cool with some chunky skate sneaks.

Ready, set, go

The '80s get a distinctly modern feel with skinny jeans in teensy checkerboard print. Take the look from grunge to chic by going head-to-toe monochrome like Nicole. Add a classic long-sleeved white tee and a black belt to balance out the look, but a cutesy baker boy cap and patent heeled boots give it an ever-so-slightly fancier twist.

Zip it

What’s fall weather-appropes and retro-cool? Jo’s loud colorblock windbreaker featuring graphic detailing, skate-style logos and a funnel neck. Avoid going OTT by keeping the rest of your outfit muted: black mom jeans plus chunky white technical sneaks seal the deal.

The finishing line

And for a very subtle nod to the trend, it doesn’t get easier than these high-waisted silky wide-leg pants with checkerboard flag paneling running from hip to toe. To keep it from looking too sporty, clash up the grid by tucking in a monochrome Breton top and finish the look off with some black textured sneakers.
