Two ways with…The Biker Jacket by Gemma Cartwright

11:56 AM

Seeing the street style photos of biker jackets inspired me to create some outfits around the look using some of the clothes you can currently buy online and in Evans stores.

Everyone knows leather looks great with denim, so that’s my first look. If you’d rather play it safe, this is a timeless, easy to wear outfit that has been lifted with the addition of some lace inserts on the t-shirt (lace is the Spring / Summer trend to look out for) and a shiny silver bag that stops the look from being too grey. Don’t be scared of jeggings – if you treat them as a warmer alternative to tights, they have real ‘wardrobe glue’ potential, especially in cold weather!

For my second outfit, I wanted to do something a bit different. Designers always mix unexpected fabrics and textures on the catwalk, and I wanted to give that a go in a more wearable way. I love the way boho dressers like Kate Moss will throw a leather jacket over a flippy little dress, so that’s what I tried to recreate. I paired the same jacket with the red floral dress everyone had their eye on at the Spring / Summer preview (it’s so much nicer in real life!) The outfit is completed with thick tights, studded shoes and a bold teal coloured bag, and some clashing bangles tie everything together. I’d wear them all on one arm, with the black in between the thinner silver ones to bring out the reds and pinks of the dress.
