If there is one outerwear item that rarely falls off the style map, it’s the leather jacket.
Gone are the days where the leather jacket was the sole property of tough tattooed bikers! This season the leather jacket has enjoyed a chic and sexy makeover permanently shaking that heavy metal image. As a firm fashion favourite this must-have item is adored for its incredible style versatility – a chic statement at work or a quick cover-up over the weekend. It’s no surprise that the leather jacket is referred to as an “investment piece” – you can’t put a price on classic style. Here are four fabulous looks!
# 1 – BREAKING COLOUR RULES: Fashion rules can be broken; it just depends on how! So take our lead and combine the elegance of black with the depth of brown. The black heels and pencil skirt grounds our look while the leather jacket and pumpkin, white and black pin-striped shirt ensure effortless finesse.
# 2 – SEVENTIES GODDESS: It’s the return of the 70’s siren fit with Farrah Fawcett curls. The wide-leg trousers give a modern edge while the stilettos and belted waist balance things beautifully. Add an angular clutch bag to match the outfit’s simplicity.
# 3 – SIMPLE DOES IT: The simplicity of this look is inspiring. All you need is a pair of black jeans, beautiful black boots, a dazzling bronze sparkly top and the luxurious comfort of our caramel leather jacket. It’s the simple outfits that usually steal the show.
# 4 – COUNTRY CHIC: We are taking leather back to its roots and channelling a country-cool look by teaming our sexy leather jacket with a fun and colourful check shirt, must-have bootleg jeans and chocolate brown boots. Remember to tuck in your check shirt if you don’t have a flat tummy.
