Trend We Like: Coloured Biker Jackets


Pictured L to R: Nicole Richie wearing her coloured biker to the gym, neon green biker jacket at Rag & Bone SS13 and Rihanna in her green leather biker jacket.

Biker jackets are a certifiable style staple (we love how Penelope Cruz wears hers on the weekend), a wardrobe workhorse that goes hand-in-hand with the Little Black Dress and the classic White Shirt.

For spring summer 13, we’re ditching the black biker for a brighter version with the entry of the coloured biker jacket. Spring summer 13’s offering comes in uplifting shades and slouchy styles in various textures and refined leathers.

Seen on the runway at Rag & Bone in neon green and DKNY in pale pink, it’s clear that this season, the colour scale knows no bounds.

Super-fashionistas Nicole Richie and Rihanna carry off their biker jackets with aplomb. House of Harlow designer Nicole Richie manages to make hers work for the gym, while Rihanna’s Alexander McQueen version is the standout piece in an otherwise all-black ensemble.

Here are our Top Picks from the shops:

L-R: Rick Owens biker jacket at Havana €1540, Mary Portas for House of Fraser biker jacket €220, River Island geometric print jacket €81


Go all out in a silver biker in the softest leather by the taste maker’s favourite, Rick Owens, or pare it back in oversized coral from River Island. Queen of the High Street, Mary Portas, meets us in the middle with a fantastic print version for House of Fraser while Acne are doing it in neon yellow at Brown Thomas.

If you just want to dip your toe in the trend then buy this cheap but cool blue biker jacket (above) for €25 from Penneys. Whichever style you choose,  a coloured biker jacket is guaranteed to carry you through this spring summer in style.
