Wardrobe Staples: The Biker Jacket

There's nothing groundbreaking or in fact 'new' about this outfit, it's just a go-to of mine and whenever I'm asked about my ideal outfit, this is example I give.  You should always invest a good biker jacket, real leather obviously, although I do have a couple of faux leather ones as back-up if the weather isn't great.  I've had this black biker from Boda Skins for about a year now and I can't even count the number of times I've worn it.  The leather is buttery soft but also tough and durable so it's not going to tear or damage easily.  Boda skins is great for bikers because they have so many different styles and what's even better is that they have 4 different colour hardwares to choose from; black, silver (as worn here), gold and rose gold.  I have my eye on a gold hardware biker next.  

The outfit options for a black biker are endless but my go-to is always a basic white t-shirt and a pair of jeans.  Sometimes I wear flats, for example in Summer I tend to wear my ATP Atelier sandals (or if you want a dupe for those), or a pair of Converse (probably now my Vans) but when I want a more sexy look I opt for some black court shoes.  Finished off with some gold jewellery and this YSL bag which I haven't worn in soooo long (use it or lose it) this look is one of my all time favourites.

    Loving this look!

    I am obsessed with my biker jacket – mainly as it can dress up so many outfits. 🙂

    I am forever upgrading my leather jacket. I need to invest in a really expensive one to carry with me through the years.

    Since I purchased my biker jacket 3 year ago, I am surprised how versatile it is! Certainly on high rotation in my wardrobe and worthy of staple status! BTW Emma, your hair looks amazing, and has given you new found confidence and swagger! That’s what the perfect hairstyle should do, IMO. Love from Montreal x

    i just upgraded my black biker jacket to an All Saints Balfern jacket. Buttery soft, smells good -faux leather jackets are good but they can’t quite do that 🙂 I can’t think of an outfit that it wouldn’t go with or improve. Great investment.
