HOW TO WEAR MOTOCROSS (LIKE AN ASOSER)

By Maybelle Morgan, 1 September 2017

So maybe you’ve never jumped off a dirt heap before and it's a case of all the gear and no idea. But, right now, we are totally on board with the motocross trend that 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 is a skate-cool jersey shirt with bright panelling 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 a pair of casj Converse trainers.

Double line

Proof that motocross-inspired gear can look sleek AF? Ludovica in these tapered trousers with sports-tipping and colourblock detail. The key is all in the material. Opt for satin trews, a dressier silk shirt and layers of gold chokers to up the glam factor, but keep it fresh with 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 it out, before adding a cutesy baker boy cap and patent heeled boots to give it the 'fit an ever-so-slightly fancier twist.

Zip it

What’s autumn weather appropriate and retro cool? Jo’s loud colourblock 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 and white technical sneaks will seal the deal.

The finishing line

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