Style Reality: The lesser known name for a leather biker jacket is ‘Perfect’, when you think it’s the most perfect – not to mention the powerful – piece of outerwear.
Sure, it produces endless images of the golden age of Hollywood’s bad boy rebels and guitar slinging from the 1970s, but there are also cool, modern (and experimental) ways to wear bikers today.
Here we break down five of them, which will see you in the style of the transition season;
The Smart Leather
Whether you’re heading to the wedding or at the end of the year, it’s time to get out and be smart and look unethically better.
But if you’re not sure how to stack this style without pulling the staff suit, why not exchange a blazer for a beautiful leather jacket. When worn with a pair of crisp white shirts and black derbies, it works as an amazingly sharp accent for your outfit and – more importantly, looks more modern than a suit jacket.
If, like David Beckham himself, the king of ‘Health Goth’, you are a man who likes to blacken and exercise with monochrome trainers and superfoods paired with juices, then a standard biker leather jacket is your Brian’s outerwear selection.
Make a beautiful vow by pairing it with technical clothing or walk joggers and then throw a leather jacket with tight nails over a torn long line t-shirt.
You have a gym membership and an account of Mr. Porter – and are not scared to use it. It’s a mode ahead look.
The Modern Rocker
The leather cyclist is a crucial player in the outerwear of the rock star for a long time. And you can easily tell that the jacket fits in with a cloth. But instead of going down the traditional rocker route, cut a contemporary route and wear your shirt over a tight shirt, some ripped / ripped skinny jeans and a pair of heavy, non-boss boots.
If you don’t want to outdo Marilyn Brando, the easiest way to balance the rebellious underwear of a leather jackets bikers is to contrast it with one of the fresh prints of the season: floral.
Rivardo Tusky’s SS15 collection was full of stylish monochrome flowers for Gwyneth Paltrow, who set his tone for the harsh spring style. But you can go to ASOS, Topman, Mango or River Island and grab a cheap flower pie, which currently offers a wide range of silent options to set against your skin.
Finish with white, jeans and trainers for a clean, summer-ready aesthetic.
Lightweight knitting is a missing piece of the transition wardrobe puzzle. Breathing when the temperature rises and is comfortable when the beer garden is frozen.
However, in the wrong hands, they can look a little safe. Tighten your knitwear by laying a biker jacket on top, which not only gives you a quick edge to your everyday look, but also offers an extra layer of protection from the infamous turbulent weather of spring.
