There’s something incredibly funky about a thick, luxurious leather biker jacket. Especially this season where pretty dresses are being teamed up with big worker-style boots. It’s a great look – floaty fabric on top for the ultimate in femininity is balanced beautifully with chunky footwear, fun and quirky, topped off to fashion perfection with a marvellous biker-like classic in today’s high fashion bright colours.
It’s a timeless favourite with both men and women. And you don’t have to be a biker to get the best out of it. Opt for black, brown or tan for a less dramatic, cool and subtle look. Women’s leather biker jackets can bethe focus of your outfits for the season with versions in red, cream and ivory – and indeed this is is the case with some celebrities. Purple is big on the scene this year after a long absence on the catwalk. Plus there’s rich cherry, lush burgundy and marvellous mahogany, all making a serious comeback.
Vintage styling is huge this spring and summer, with countless celebs appearing resplendent in classic and edgy designer variations on the theme. And they’re so practical. Not only do they add the final touch to your look. They keep you warm. And if you’re the kind of person who feels naked without multiple pockets to stash your stuff in, you’re in luck!
Of course you could always go for a real vintage leather biker jacket, particularly popular for men that like to set their own style. But they can cost just as much, if not more, than a new one. Creating your own vintage classic is much more fun and it’ll cost you a great deal less. Because leather never loses its charm even when it gets stained, torn or worn, it’ll remain in your wardrobe for years and years, if not decades. They hold their looks as well as holding a load of great memories, which is probably why so many of us become emotionally attached to our favourite leather wear… they see us through thick and thin, from spring through autumn, summer and winter. And they make such a great gift – something that lasts and lasts.
You can even customise your jacket for a totally unique look. Designers and imaginative punters are taking leather to a new level, adding beads, studs, jewels and hand-painted panels to create fashion statements to die for! Luckily, whether or not you’re the artistic type, all you need to do is surf the net for the most incredible variety of styles, colours and prices at a cost that won’t break the bank.
