How I Wear It: Vintage Harley Tees

 

 

Our friend Leigh, a full-figure model, stylist and vintage expert loves her old Harley tees so much that she’s figured out a way to wear them for any occasion. I always wear mine (and I have a lot of them) peeking out from classic cashmere cardigans and even under pretty dresses. We have a really good rare one in the vintage shop, plus a few more from Etsy in the slider below.

How to get away with it for a more serious day? Leigh’s trick: “I love to sneak one into a more “polished” look by throwing a super-tailored blazer over my tee and jeans combo. Somehow this makes it all feel so much more grown up. The shoes have to feel ‘nice’ too.”
When you pair a ‘lady’ Harley tee, (like Leigh’s beloved rose one) with a slim pencil skirt and heels, the result is completely date-worthy. “Sometimes I’ll even do it with a sequin skirt and denim jacket,” she says.
