THE BIKER JACKET

I feel like I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect biker jacket for most of my twenties – so basically around five whole years now. It was a trend that I admired when I was a teenager, but never felt cool enough for – I’d crush over the likes of Alexa Chung and hope that one day I could pull it off the way she did. Don’t get me wrong, I still don’t feel cool enough to rock a leather jacket, I am the clumsiest person you will ever meet, and I’m likely to be sat in my boyfriends dressing gown watching films when Friday evening comes around…

That wonderful image aside, there’s just something about this one by And Other Stories that has ticked all my biker jacket boxes for me. The hunt is finally over and I know that this is a piece that I will be wearing for as long as it fits me – for the school run and beyond! It’s the most buttery soft black leather and it’s not too fussy which is something I am majorly in favour of – a lot of leather jackets come hand in hand with an array of studs and detailing, which just really isn’t my thing. This is just the kind of minimal leather jacket that my wardrobe was crying out for, and really helps to elevate a simple winter daytime look like the one above. Even something as simple as a grey jumper and jeans – add the biker and a bright statement bag and you’re good to go. It instantly looks more stylish than before, and I love how the jacket looks slouched over the shoulders too – I feel like this makes anyone look like they know a thing or two about how to dress. Right?

Granted, it’s most definitely an investment piece and not at the lower end of the price range, but it’s something that can be worn weekly and that is granted to only get better with age. I have the jacket in a size eight and it’s still quite oversized – just something to consider if you’re thinking of taking the plunge! As always, I have linked similar options below for you to take a look at! I hope you enjoyed this little ramble about my favourite new jacket and I hope you come back soon…
