For so long the leather biker jacket has been at the forefront of every girl's winter wardrobe, a sensible must-have to be worn with anything from T-shirts and jeans to cocktail dresses. But could it be time to update the look? After spotting a number of guests attending the international shows wearing a twist on the original, we're now looking to more tailored styles like leather smoking jackets and longline blazers with sharp lapels to get us through the cooler months.
Easy to wear and quick to throw on, this is an investment piece we can trust to be versatile, providing an instant chic edge to even the simplest of outfits.
