My Biker Jacket Diary – Romancing The Jacket

640-AdjSE-3-F6337Come the 1980s, the biker trend reached its peak. The leather jacket became a fashion staple among the rock ‘n’ roll; the punk and the pop. Remember Michael Jackson’s red leather Thriller number?

Some say that “The biker jacket is like denim or fine wine, it gets better with age.” I couldn’t agree more. And thanks to Kate Moss; Alexa Chung; Sarah Jessica Parker; Olivia Palermo and Miranda Kerr.., just to name a few, who wore the trend from the ‘highway to the runway’.
Nowadays I love mixing the biker jacket with anything boho. While the look still keeps it’s street appeal, teamed with a maxi dress or a floral skirt gives the leather jacket’s tough rebel edge a softer and romantic touch!

  1. “Wow!” That is off the shelf. “I like it!” It is like a sharp edge meeting soft. I wonder what it would like with different leather colours or leather boots or hat???

    • Thank you S. 🙂 It ‘only’ took me two years and eight months to realize that I could add a header banner! (Where have I been??)
      That photo was taken by a Chinese artist turned photographer Road Wang. I’m so happy to hear your lovely feedback! X
