In this little blog series, we’re going to take an Autumn Winter trend, and show you how to wear it – three ways. This week, the biker jacket.
Being on trend is all very well, but getting more wear out of your on-trend piece is better. Its all about being clever with the pieces you buy, and seeing how they can be adapted for various occasions. This week, the biker jacket – for a first date, some Saturday shopping, and a glam ball or party.
This is how we would style this rock chick leather biker jacket from New Look (£59.99) for those three occasions.
1. On a First Date
Keep it simple, pretty but not too pretty, girly, but with an edge, and make an impression on a first date. If you aren’t sure of your date’s height, opt for flat pumps; if you can wear a heel, try a biker-style boot to match the biker jacket. Keep your colour palette simple, and add fun accessories as talking points!

2. Saturday Shopping
You want to look stylish and be comfortable when shopping, yeah? Mix your colours, and layer up, so you can take your layers off when it gets too hot in the shops. The biker jacket looks perfect with jeans and Converse, and a jumper if you need one.
