Borrowing fashion from the boys is always fun and the biker jacket is a wardrobe essential I love to wear.
A key staple this season, designers have been sending the biker jacket down the Fashion Week runways once again. If you feel like perhaps it’s a little too grungy, my recommendation is to try wearing yours with floaty dresses and softer fabrics for a more feminine look.
Because it’s quite a structured cut, finding the perfect biker jacket for your shape can be tough, so we’ve got a few tips and tricks to the perfect styling.
Narrow Body Shapes
Avoid being swallowed whole by the masculine inspired jackets by choosing bright colours in a cropped cut. Alternatively, embrace uber-stylish shearling jackets. By contrast, your petite frame against the big collar really creates a statement look.
Rectangular Body Shapes
If you’re more of a straight up and down shape, by choosing jackets that cinch you in at the waist, you create the illusion of an hourglass figure. If you have more of an eye for detail, try incorporating a jacket with a detailed shoulder. This will work to balance out the silhouette.
Curvy Body Shapes
If you have a curvy shape, opt for an off-centred zipper. Also, choose a more structured cut in a softer leather. You’ll achieve the rocker vibe whilst maintaining a sleek style.
