Insomniac Sale Picks: Non-leather Moto Jackets

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

After our recent leather moto roundup, ballewal requested a few picks for non-leather moto jackets, so here we go:

Actually, first a QUICK TIP: “Moto” won’t always work as a search term. Also try “motorcycle jacket,” “biker jacket,” “asymmetric zip jacket,” and “perfecto jacket.” And probably a few other terms I’m forgetting.

Gap Quilted Moto – was $88, now $57.20
with code THANKS

Posting a bit early tonight since that code expires at midnight! So ballewal said non-leather, but also mentioned that options besides faux leather were welcome, and I think this quilted cotton twill option is so sharp. Love the clean, collarless design and the strategically placed side pockets that nip at the waist. Available in this gray, as well as black or white in sizes 0 – 20, including some petite and tall sizes.Size availability varies by color. If you don’t dig the quilting try this twill moto instead. This jacket is mixed media but features the same collarless shape and comes in 1X – 3X.

NIC+ZOE Knit Moto Jacket – was $148, now $64.99

Another marvelously clean design, this one in a cotton-blend sweater knit that’s bound to be cozy.  jacket is subdued enough to work at the office, but would also look great with a graphic tee and jeans for weekend wear. Or throw it over a dress to add some edge. Available in this heathered rose as well as teal or black in sizes XS – XL. Size availability varies by color. This blue boucle option is gorgeous, too. This sweater-style moto is wool and comes in sizes 1X – 3X.

BLANKNYC Faux Leather Moto – was $148, now $103.60

Although faux leather options abound and many of them are convincingly real-looking, I had a tough time finding a great one on sale. This one still isn’t terribly cheap, but Blank is a great brand and the jacket itself is dead sexy. Available in sizes XS – L. This similar style comes in black or oxblood in sizes 0X – 3X.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for non-leather moto jackets:

  1. Express – Their (Minus the) Leather collection is fab. Other great options, too, including this collarless knit moto.
  2. Nordstrom – Great selection of moto-styled jackets in knits, wool, and other materials, including plus sizes.
  3. ASOS – Moto doesn’t yield much, but “biker”? Denim, wool, and faux leather.
  4. Piperlime – Limited sizes, but lots of lovely options including this cognac faux leather.

Insomniac Sale Picks: Fit-and-flare Dresses with Low Necklines

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Christina requested a few picks for fit-and-flare dresses with low-ish necklines – ideally formal enough for a wedding guest – so here we go:

_9263115

Ivy & Blue Ruched Matte Jersey Dress – was $118, now $70.80

That’s a pretty high waistline, I’ll admit, but it’s also pretty wide so it’s unlikely to balloon out in a maternity-esque fashion. With a nice, deep v-neckline this dress will be lovely with pendants and v-shaped bib necklaces. Pair with a jacket, cardigan, or wrap for cool temps. Available in this cobalt, as well as navy, pink, black, or washed red in sizes 2 – 16. Size availability varies by color. This dress has a similar shape with a textured skirt and comes in sizes 12 – 32.

fit and flare dress

AGB Belted Dress – was $70, now $47.59
with code FAVES

A great, simple shape with a pretty scoop neckline. If you don’t dig the belt, remove it and swap in another or skip it altogether. (Those little thread belt loops can be clipped right off.) A solid, sleek dress like this is perfect for fall layering, so add the sweater or jacket of your choice. Available in red or black in sizes 4 – 18, sold out in size 6. Size availability varies by color. This red dress has sleeves but a similar shape and is available in sizes 14 – 32.

_8402807

Ivy & Blu Ruched Dress – was $108, now $64.80

Yep, this brand wins the prize for best versatile, low-necked fit-and-flare dresses. This one features a slightly deeper v and a slightly longer hemline than its friend above, as well as sleeveless construction. Available in black and indigo in sizes 2 – 16, sold out in size 12. Size availability varies by color. Again, sleeves on this one but otherwise similar and in sizes 12 – 32.

maroon flare dress

Lauren Ralph Lauren V-Neck Flare Dress$89.50

Not on sale, but not outrageously priced and one of the only sleeved options I came across! Love the twist-front detail at the bust line. This dress has a lovely flare but no defined waistline, which is great for some figures … does have Designated Boob Room, but in a stretchy material so hopefully not too limiting. Available in sizes 0 – 18, and also in 14W – 24W in this maroon and also cobalt.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for fit-and-flare dresses with low-ish necklines:

  1. J.Crew Weddings – Spendy but gorgeous. This silk chiffon dress with a sweetheart neckline comes in 15 colors.
  2. eShakti – Mind your fabrics as many are the right shape but made from poplin or cotton knit. Stick to the polyesters and rayons instead.
  3. Nordstrom – Always worth checking for anything wedding-related. This purple lace dress is stunning.

Insomniac Sale Picks: Creaseless Office-appropriate Pants

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Krysta requested a few picks for office-appropriate pants without a front crease, so here we go:

Land’s End Matte Jersey Wide Leg Pant – was $49, now $34.99

Jersey might not pass muster in some offices, but in a thick weave and wideleg shape they will work for many. Also I can understand why Krysta made this request: Most pants that scream “wear me to the office” ARE creased, even if they’re not made from suiting! So slightly more casual options like these fill in the gap, and can definitely be dressed up for all but the most formal workplaces. This navy is on sale, and black is full price. Available in XS – XL, as well as petite, tall, and plus sizes.

Banana Republic Sloan Fit Trouser – was $89.50, now $62.65
Click on “30% off your purchase” to apply code

Bought a pair with a personal shopping client last week who was looking for versatile, non-suiting pants and these fit the bill. They’re a slimmer fit and quite stretchy, but made from a materials that is appropriate for year-round wear. Available in sizes 0 -16, including some petite sizes. This pant has a slightly slimmer fit, but is similar and in sizes 14- 28, including petite and tall lengths.

2899284-p-MULTIVIEW

Anne Klein Boot Leg Pant – was $89, now $29.99

Such a nice, classic trouser shape but made sans front crease. Gray is super trendy for fall, too, so bonus right there. Available in sizes 6 – 16. These Gap pants are similar and available in 00 -20 including some petite and tall sizes, but they’re getting reviewed as fitting small/oddly. I couldn’t find a single pair of creaseless light gray plus size dress pants, but these gray twill ones might work for some and come in sizes 16 – 30.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for office-appropriate pants without a front crease:

  1. Land’s End – A few trouser styles are creased, but plenty are not. In addition to the pick above, these washable wool pants are great and available in petite, plus, and tall.
  2. Jones New York – Again, trouser styles will be creased but other cuts are often available creaseless
  3. Gap – Even wider legs without creases! But also straight legs like these.
  4. And, of course, THRIFT STORES! Dress pants abound at most thrift stores, and it’s worth checking for some crease-free options. (thethriftshopper.com can help you locate stores near you.)
