Despite my complains about British weather I love a good ole jacket! It’s the perfect way to pull together an outfit and can help make a statement. I am rarely seen without my signature black leather jacket by Hugo BOSS, but for once it’s going to have to take the back seat because there’s a newbie in town- the pink biker jacket.
The pink biker jacket is the It item right now. What better way to channel your street style during Fashion Week than to get your hands on this pretty little number? The perfect transition from Winter to Spring! It happens to be surprisingly versatile too.
Forget the ‘no denim’ rule. Rules are meant to be broken, even the fashionable ones! Pop on a pair of heels while you’re at it to balance out the masculine/feminine vibes.
Use this jacket to add a splash of colour to an all black outfit. A sure fire figure flatterer.
Want to roughen up a dainty dress but worry a black leather jacket will be too much? Think pink!
And no I’m not forgetting about the usual hefty price tag! You don’t have to spend big bucks to work this trend.
I found this gorgeous pastel pink version in Marks & Spencer’s for only £75! It may be faux, but it looks the part. That’s probably my biggest tip when it comes to buying any leather jacket- whether it’s faux or real, or expensive or cheap, make sure the material is good quality! You could be buying designer, but if the leather looks cheap and tacky, it’s not worth the splurge. Still not sure? Stay away from the overly shiny- dull out a leather jacket by leaving it under your mattress for a few days to give it that vintage look Parisiennes adore.
It’s also worth remembering this trend doesn’t specify leather. If you fancy something different, the High Street is chock a block with longline coats, blazers and trenches. Here are some of my favourite picks:
Pastel Pink Biker Jacket by Primark, £25.00
Coral Leather-Look Jacket by River Island, £60.00
ASOS Coat with Notch Detail, £85.00
Speziale Collared Neck Trench Coat by M&S, £149.00
Suede Boxy Biker Jacket by Topshop, £185.00
