Last weekend was Spring Bike Week in Ocean City and it was my first time experiencing a Bike Week of any sort. I have watched enough seasons of Son’s of Anarchy to know that there is a difference between being a weekend rider and actually living the lifestyle. I love anything that is authentic, and with bike culture you can tell the real from the fake immediately.
I went to Trader Lees, a known biker hangout. At first glance it seemed to be a garage, but when I walked in it was a true biker bar – at least for the night I was there, and in West Ocean City of all places. There was an awesome band playing, friendly bartenders, and 100% true bikers! Every person that I met over the weekend was really nice, and everyone was just out partying and having fun!
Biker fashion for the men ranges from your typical jeans and black t-shirts, to the very eccentric with leather chaps, and a biker jacket with a statement emblem. Lets just say – I saw everything you can possibly imagine.
Biker fashion for the ladies is from one extreme to the next, but the common theme is showing some skin! I saw so many cute outfits from cut-off shorts with combat boots and American flag t-shirt, to bra tops, low-rise leather pants, and high heels. Printed denim in leopard print was also a common theme, as well as bikinis. Yes, bikinis – as in attire normally reserved for the beach or poolside. The bar that I was at had a bikini contest that was actually pretty fun to watch.
Obviously, I am not a real biker but I do like the look and thought it would be cool to draw some inspiration from the lifestyle. I have included pictures of my favorite biker-inspired fashion. You can rock this look head to toe or use specific pieces and play them up. Anyway you do it is a fresh take on an old trend that is new again!
Check out the photos below for some style inspiration.
