The Essential: Leather Biker Jacket

This is a fairly new addition for me, as it was only recently that I twigged quite how much wear you can get out of a trusty leather biker.  I have just bought myself one, from Maje (fabulous Parisian brand that I could happily live in forever) in the Net A Porter staff/friends sale (which was amazing, btw). 

You really can wear it with anything - pretty little dresses right through to the classic white tee, skinny jeans and sunglasses.  It's the kind of purchase that you feel cool in - like when you get your first pair of school shoes not from Clarks (British kids will relate to this, I'm hoping).  Here are some style shots of people in their leather gear:

and I'll take any excuse for a little bit of Miranda Kerr outfit lusting... Love her jacket, anyone know where it is from? Love the checked leather (someone with design experience can probably give me the correct term for this) look too...

Miranda shows two very different ways to wear the same jacket - she wears it with two very different essential pieces, the maxi skirt and the breton tee...

I love that you can really change a look with a leather jacket - you can go from fairy princess to rock chick - and love wearing mine with a hat and maxi skirts - looks very cool, at least in my book!

Where to buy your leather jacket:
Maje - As I said before, this Parisian brand do amazing jackets - and the leather feels as soft as silk. Not cheap, but then why would you want it to be - this piece will last you for life.
Whistles - Very impressed by this wonderful British brand's leather pieces.  They have five in their current collection and they are all very, very nice. Starting from £295.00 - worth every damn penny. Click on the link to view.
Zara - Ye Old Faithful, Zara have some goodies too. Apparently their 'leather guy' in their design team is ex Diesel (who won tonnes of awards for their jackets). Good news for us!
Topshop - just because there is a little steal for anyone looking for a quick leather-look fix.  For £55 you can buy this amazing little leather-look jacket.

I only recently got my first leather jacket (from a leather artisan at a local market fair) and you are absolutely right about the fact that is a great versatile piece! I really like the simple black one of the Zara current collection.

Excellent you bought one from Maje? I have two leather jackets - a blue one from Ted Baker from years ago (I still wear it now and then) and a brown coloured one from All Saints which pretty much goes with everything, like you say. This in between weather here in NYC is the perfect time to wear it, as well.
