[Trend] Bold Coloured Bikers

I've been having a bit of a blogger block recently and haven't really found much to post about, but I was reading/glossing over the The ST Style at the weekend and spotted a few street style images of people in their brightly colour leather biker jackets. Seems to be a trend. A friend of mine bought the blue Acne one Hanneli Mustaparta is wearing (below) a couple of seasons ago and I've been a bit obsessed ever since. Anything in cobalt blue really does tick all the boxes for me**.  Rag and Bone's SS13 had an eye popping lime green one (below), and Christopher Kane's yellow version is pretty cool too...

I bought my black Maje leather biker last year, after umming and ahhing over whether it suited me. I now live in it. I'm pretty timid/conservative/wimpish with my fashion choices but I really think I might try this. Not the green (not cool enough) but a blue or a red might work. Miroslava Duma's printed Katrantzou piece is brilliant, but it's the kind of the thing men would never understand and I can't be bothered with the 'why are you wearing that' banter... Purely because I can't answer it with, 'Because I'm Miroslava Duma, b*tch.'  Otherwise I totally would...


I like the coral coloured one above, the pastel tones are doable... also the mint one (below).  The blue one below is a good compromise too... Ooh decisions, decisions - and not a small one at that. Leather is expensive, and as good as PU gets it just isn't the same.  The high street have a few good choices, Reiss' red style is gorgeous but even that is £400 (saying that H&M have a great one for £30 in cream, that will be available in blue from March).


What do you think? Do or don't? The blue gets my vote...

**On a completely different (cobalt blue) front, I went to see the guys at my-wardrobe last week and they're getting an exclusive bright blue pair of Acne pistol boots ASAP. Click here to make sure you don't miss out...

I love this trend, it's a good one for our rubbish British summer! I just can't decide between a pastel or a bright jacket that's the only problem! xxx

You know I see Hanelli in something and I go straight to the web to check it out! I like the colour of her jacket here. I'm not sure I could wear the blues since I'm addicted to monochrome, but style wise this is a cool look I love.
