With all the craze surrounding the return to ’70s fashions, flared jeans and vintage denim, we thought we’d revisit an iconic look, made notorious by the Hell’s Angels biker bang from the 1960s, and solidified into pop culture thanks to a slew of biker genre movies such as Wild Angels (1966) and Easy Rider (1969). We’ve seen plenty of how the Hell’s Angels gang members dressed back then, but little is known on how the ladies dressed. To fit in, many ladies dressed the same as the men: black jeans, double denim looks with sleeves sometimes ripped off. The notion of a biker chick has changed over the years and there are more style options: moto jeggings, Alexander McQueen skull jewelry, etc. How would you rock your moto style?
