Today I am chatting all about the trusty biker jacket. It’s that one item of your wardrobe that will work well in any season and you can dig it out, year on year, and know that it will never fail to give your outfit an edge.

The biker that I dig out year on year is one from Mango that Rich treated me to for Christmas circa 2014. It’s the softest butteriest leather and it still looks brand new despite me wearing it on numerous occasions. I know that excessive studding and embroidery are all the rage at the moment but my Mango one is quite simple – just black but with gold zips and subtle gold studs and details – which means it goes with pretty much anything in my wardrobe. So my starting point when trying to hunt down the perfect biker for this post was Mango where I found this little beauty. I reckon it’s a good price point for what looks to be excellent quality. If you have a bit more cash to splash then check out this classic from All Saints, or if you’re on a budget then this one from H&M is just downright gorgeous. It’s under fifty quid and if I hadn’t have read the description then I would have been totally convinced that it was real leather.

1. Off Duty

How good do biker jackets look with denim? I live in jeans and tees which can be pretty boring. But adding a leather biker and crisp white trainers (I’ve got these Superga ones which are the bees’ knees) and a statement scarf can completely transform a play-it-safe outfit. I also think that biker jackets look ace with tapered joggers but haven’t yet been brave enough to try this combination.

2. Swishy Skirts

I wish my figure was svelte enough to pull off a pleated skirt. Maybe once I’ve had the baby and started going to a gym (as I am totally planning to do but probably won’t) I will be able to squeeze into one. But for all you lucky ladies that look lovely in a pleated skirt, I think teaming a swishy number like this one from M&S with a biker would look seriously on point. As well as the soft pink hue, Marks also sell it in an ‘oyster’ shade.

The ultimate biker jacket look. Wear with a band tee, Chelsea boots and black skinny jeans. On that note, has anyone bought anything from John Lewis’ new AND/OR brand? Loving the look of their range of jeans…

Are you a fan of a biker jacket? What do you wear yours with? If you don’t own one, have I managed to convince you to treat yourself to a payday pick-me-up?
