It’s the ultimate statement piece and my wardrobe has been without one for almost a year, and today I finally decided to ditch the pastels, pleats and sequins to embrace my inner rock chick. You guessed it already – I’m talking about the trusty leather jacket.
After a random shopping trip I stumbled across Miss Selfridge’s Black Seam Detail Biker Jacket (£55) and Topshop’s Clean Biker Jacket (£55). I had a battle on my hands to decide which one I preferred but decided on Topshop’s version. The Miss Selfridge jacket is soft to the touch and feels a lot nicer than the Topshop version, but I preferred the look of the clean leather as opposed to soft and slouchy. Both jackets are best sellers and I can see why – the fit, look and overall style looks great with some killer dont-f**k-with-me high heals skinny jeans and a plain tee.
Whilst I’m happy with my new purchase there is a massive downside to these sorts of jackets, the first place I went to after buying the jacket I spotted someone wearing the exact same jacket. I think these affordable faux leather jackets are great for everyday use, but if you have one be prepared for the ‘who’s wearing it better’ show down.
