Weekly Wishlist – the biker jacket

Spring might be on its way, but we all know it can take a while to arrive in Scotland. So, we need a jacket for a good few months yet, so make it a biker jacket!

Your biker jacket doesn’t have to be black anymore, it doesn’t have to be leather either. There are loads of great fakes out there, and how about one in cotton? Or a biker jacket with no sleeves? Yes? Then you will love our weekly wishlist.

Let’s start with the real leather. French Connection’s gorgeous collarless biker jacket (£295) with detail is rock chick-tastic, but with a glamorous edge. If black is for you, try H&M’s also collarless biker jacket (£149.99), which has padding detail on the arms. If you don’t want arms, JOY’s biker jacket gilet is a sale bargain at £14, reduced from £49. Dorothy Perkins faux leather classic biker jacket looks great slung over a floral dress (£36.75, BHS). At Debenhams, king of leather Todd Flynn has designed a great leather biker jacket for this Spring for Edition at Debenhams (£250)

We also love New Look’s stone jacket (£44.99) – another great looking faux leather. But if pink is your colour, RJR John Rocha’s pink leather biker (top right) is a gorgeous investment (£199, Debenhams), but if you aren’t that sure, try it in PU first – for £60 at Wallis.

Finally, forget leather and PU, and embrace H&M’s textured jersey version (£29.99) in white – perfect for late spring (and summer in Scotland!)
