Investment Buy: Leather Biker Jacket

Leather biker jacket: £295, Jigsaw. Jumper: £65, Old Harry. Jeans: £11 in the sale, Asos. Bag: £45, Nica. Nails: 'Plankton' , £5, Topshop
I have never thought I was a 'biker' kind of girl.  But with this inbetween weather, I have been reaching for it more and more - now, it's hands down one of the best things I bought last year.

I like to keep it minimal, let the jacket be the 'hero' piece. Use it as a outfit relaxer (if that makes sense?)...throw over a slouchy jumper and jeans, this season's poloneck or a great shirt dress (I'm thinking that fab white Cos dress I wore in Lisbon). 

My Jigsaw biker was expensive at the time, but the quality of leather is superb - buttery soft. I can really vouch for it, it also doesn't have too much hardware, which is a bonus for me. I have been seeing a few great styles around lately though, so thought I'd do a round-up of the best - as it is an investment that is important to get right.




Whistles jacket (buy here). Zara jacket (buy here). Topshop Unique jacket (buy here). Mango jacket (buy here).
Notice that I also haven't gone 'too' cheap here, as leather is easy to get wrong. River Island had a good style but the leather just didn't seem luxey enough - and you want your jacket to last. I have seen all of these instore and up close, and they are by far the most expensive looking ones out there.

  3. I love the jacket- I totally agree that it's important to invest in leather. I bought a leather biker from Whistles a few years ago and it's still as good as new!

  5. Hi! Any thoughts on other styles? I've had leather jackets in the past and LOVE them but just don't seem to suit the biker style, I think it's all the zips. Are there any other up and coming styles? Brilliant post! Rose.
