It’s no secret that the savvy leather jacket has become the most versatile staple in anyone’s wardrobe. A garment that is now considered “a classic” was once introduced as a trend, but because of its versatility and broad appeal, the leather jacket has worked its way into every wardrobe and always remains popular. Traditional, general simple styling means that a true classic can be worn year after year and never date.
A snug-fitted leather jacket is the perfect collaboration to that classic feminine flirty piece, a tunic, skinny jeans or zipped over a flimsy dress with black opaque tights for a tough/tender look. Fun, yet functional, the end result is a collection that will eventually be a staple in your wardrobe.
Just remember though, the best way to wear this garment is of course how you take this piece and make it your own. There is a jacket for everyone!
A vast change that has appeared in the fashion industry over the last year has been the influx of bright hue colours that flourished the autumn/winter fashion trends right through to the upcoming season of summer.
This wave of colour stems from the revolutionary red trousers having originated from last years A/W 2010-11 street style that had us seeing red from every direction including Riccardo Tisci’s head-to-toe red trouser suit in his Givenchy collection.
Red-hot trousers are yet again in full swing this season becoming as versatile as blue jeans and adding a “pop of colour” to an otherwise drab wardrobe.
Teamed with a white T and flats for a relaxed feel, or mixed with prints and platforms for that wow factor, this bright hue, which has been interpreted into wide-leg trousers and skinnier cuts, has been spotted on many fashion-forward celebrities and fashionistas alike.
So out with the fail-safe tedious black colours ladies and in with the bright hue jackets, coats and trousers, as colour is here to stay and will run for many years to come.
