Top 5 : Coloured Biker Jackets

 

My favourite thing that I own in my wardrobe is my Schott Leather Jacket (see similar here). It’s practically a second skin and it will be handed down as a family heirloom!

It’s my most recommended piece for adding edge into your wardrobe.

However the classic black biker leather jacket can often be too harsh, especially heading into spring so with this in mind I’d recommend investing in a coloured biker jacket.

The exciting thing about this shape is that it is everywhere, in many different guises. It is such a classic that most brands have their version. Meaning whatever your budget or taste or brand affiliation you can find the one that is right for you.

There are benefits to both the lower and more affordable price points. You have to decide what you need from the jacket. The cheaper high street end of the scale allow you to have seasonal updates in the colours you love and it also means you can play around with the shape until you are ready to invest. The higher price point pieces are those heirlooms, the pieces you hold dear to your heart. They are good quality and will really elevate your everyday wardrobe.

Thing to consider:

-The length: Crop styles are very useful if you want to wear with dresses and skirts and you like to give definition to your waist.

– If you have broader shoulders stick to the softer fabrics with less structure so as not to add bulk

– don’t worry about doing it up, they are generally designed to be worn open.

Wherever you buy it from if you find the right colour and fit, it will rarely be off your back.

Take a look at the 5 ways to style the coloured biker and my favourite places to buy one!

TOP 5: Socks

Top 5 Socks

So I have news.

You don’t have a shoe issue, you have a sock issue.

No more cold ankles, no more brogues feeling not practical for the weather, no more boring, unimaginative outfits.

This is one of the most common problems I see time and time again. Clients love the cropped trouser look, or a brogue and a jean but they struggling to find shoes to cover their ankles. However add a sock and your outfit will go from flat to perky.

Remember a good outfit that is full of personalist is often due to the details.

& socks are a great detail. Just pocking out from under your jeans, hardly seen but they say so much about you.

Socks give you the ability to say luxury, say party, say mischief, say fun, say flare.

Here are some of my favourite ways to add that touch of flare, polish and consideration and my top 5 shops to buy them from.

TOP 5 : White Boots

I’m obsessed with white boots and you should be too! For the smoothest transition from winter to spring, white boots are key shoes to add into your wardrobe.

There are a lot to choose from at the moment, from killer heels to chunky soled monkey boots. For my Top 5 I’ve chosen everyday, wearable potions with heels that are low or blocked so you can stomp around with pleasure!

When it comes to wearing white in your wardrobe, It’s true power comes from the fact it goes with everything; a completey versatile addition. However it also brings a lightness and playfulness to your outfit that other neutrals like black and navy just can’t provide.

Read below for the different ways to style a white boot and most importantly where you can find a style that feels right for you budget, life and tastes. Remember, buy the best you can afford and most importantly love what you are wearing!
