(From Elle.com)

I love this trend for the summer - hot biker babe gone glam! It was the only natural progression from acid-wash jeans of the 80's to leather and lace being 'so hot right now'. You can buy your your own pair of jeans and then use scissors and some bleach to recreate the above looks. Add studs or diamonds to any outfit and you're ready-to-ride (don't forget the motor cap - it's a staple.) I would even add some leather pants or super-short denim cut-offs. What do you think of this look? Biker babe? or Biker bust?
