3 Ways to Wear: The Biker Jacket

2 August 2018

If there’s one piece of outerwear that will never go out of fashion, it’s the Biker Jacket. This style of jacket pops up season after season, and it’s no fluke why! The structured shape is a flattering fit on all body shapes, whilst the rugged fastenings and rigid collar bring a cool look to any outfit. You don’t have to be a biker chick to rock a biker jacket, but if you’re not convinced yet, let us show you three refreshing ways to work the jacket into your wardrobe – no motorcycle required!


Create a city chic look in an instant by simply throwing this jacket on over any outfit. The soft grey colour means it will look perfect teamed with anything from your favourite denims to your elegant dresses. Fully lined and in a super soft suedette fabric, the thickness of this jacket makes it a great transitional piece for summer into autumn.

Team this grey style with our hanky hem dress; the colours are a match made in heaven, whilst the floral print adds an extra wow factor to the outfit. And if it’s a special occasion you’re heading out to, make sure you feel your best with the perfect accessories.

Reinvented in colour, but the classic cut is never left behind! This refreshing red shade will bring a burst of brightness to your autumn outfits. Our official style consultant, Mark Heyes tells us why this jacket is his favourite:

“Red is such a huge colour this season and Biker Jackets are here to stay! So if there’s one way to work it like the fashionistas, it’s with a rocking red number.” - Mark Heyes

We couldn’t agree more! What better reason to feel bold, brave and confident in this fabulous shade that’s complimentary to all skin tones. Key for layering in autumn, or teaming with a T-Shirt whilst it's still summer. And why not switch up your regular denims for these Statement Print Trousers to give a smart and sophisticated twist to your daytime look.


If grey and red aren’t your colours, this yellow number will be sure to catch your eye instead! Fully lined with zip fastenings and detailed pockets, as well as intricate button detail to the shoulders, this design has all the elements PLUS that vibrant colour. Here’s Mark’s top styling tip for this jacket:

“Resist the urge to team this vibrant colour with black – an unexpected colour combination, such as blue or indigo instantly adds a striking fashion edge.” - Mark Heyes

This eye-catching striped top teamed with your favourite indigo denims creates the perfect pairing!
