Give your look an edge with this season's leather (and pleather) jackets...
The leather jacket is a timeless wardrobe staple that comes back around year after year. It’s also one of the only items in your wardrobe that you can wear all year around – so it’s important to invest in one you love and enjoy wearing.
The leather jacket is the ultimate go-to piece as you can throw it over the top of any outfit and look instantly well put together. It’s also great for day and night looks, as it’s ideal paired with skinny jeans and a Breton top for an off-duty casual look, but also has the ability to instantly glam up an evening outfit!
As well as the conventional black biker style, there’s also a number of variations available on the high street – incorporating this year’s top trends. From dusty pink leather jackets to polka dot leather jackets, there’s something to suit every taste and style. Faux-leather jackets are also a great affordable alternative if you don’t want to spend money on a real leather jacket and the high street offers a varied selection of these as well!
