Spring leather jacket … what to wear this weekend

Spring leather jacket … the scoop.

For me, spring isn’t quite sprung until you start to see the new crop of jackets in stores. I’ve got a bit of a fetish for a jacket, so when I started to see the delicious pastel hues arriving, it was time to seek out my must-have spring leather jacket before they all got snapped up.

The leather biker, or rider jacket, is still with us for the foreseeable – the only update this time around, is to pick one in a buttery soft light sorbet color.

It might still be damn chilly out there, but nothing gets rid of those SAD blues quicker than a pop of color. Your spring leather jacket is going to be your best friend later in the season, so why not invest early, and start off your love affair with it by layering it under your winter coat. Yep – layering for spring is another key trend, so show your fashion nous by working your spring leather jacket through the transitional season.

Spring leather jacket …  how to wear it.

If you are scoping out a spring leather jacket, be sure to check all the high street stores. There’s a boom in affordable leather jackets as well as a very nice line in faux leather. If the pastel hue is just a seasonal fling, then don’t go blowing your budget for the year on this one item.

To make your color choice stand out, pair your jacket with neutral basics. For the weekend I love the relaxed vibe of this Mango easy fit sweatshirt, and these comfy Rebecca Minkoff slip-ons.

This lemon leather jacket is from MSGM, but I’ve also spotted pink and blue ones at Karen Millen, and a cute faux leather blue one at Zara recently.
