Your lifestyle, your quirk
The August issue of Allure magazine lists a black leather biker jacket as one of the 10 things every woman should have, and I can’t agree more. It’s still pretty hot outside and I hardly need to wear one, but this is one jacket I totally would not mind putting on now.
Fall 2012 is full of fashion trends that have a retro feeling, so this very cool item makes perfect sense. Better yet, this article of clothing appeals to women and men. Even the most nerdy guy or gal can throw on a leather biker jacket and get and instant dose of rock and roll cool that is always in style.
If you have ever considered adding a biker jacket to your wardrobe, this is a year to do it. Designers and labels with just about every price point have included this item into their lines. Topshop would be one great source to check out. Your options are endless, and don’t worry if you’re not a hellraiser or motorcycle rider type; if you’re not into the traditional biker style, you can check out some of the other versions of the biker jacket.
In addition to the traditional basic black leather that hits most people at the waist, there are both oversized and shrunken versions in other fabrications and colors. Since it’s early in the season, take some time to shop around to find one to fit your budget and style. You may get lucky at a secondhand store or borrow your guy’s, but this is such a classic piece I suggest you invest in one of your very own.
A biker jacket has a cool and casual look to it, but you can also wear it with other outfits to spice them up. This jacket obviously looks great with jeans or paired with a leather bottom, but for a bit fun, wear it tossed over an ultra-feminine dress or a strictly business-looking outfit. If you need some more convincing, a black biker jacket is a past and current favorite of celebrity fashionistas on and off the red carpet.
Black leather is what makes this jacket a classic, but feel free to check out some of the other options available for this cool style. Go off the beaten path and choose patent leather, a bright color, a metallic, or perhaps an interesting exotic skin.
