Like a trench, a biker is a timeless and ever-current garment. However, it’s viewed by many women as a wardrobe staple, but by others as an edgy and controversial piece of clothing. But why is this?
Unfortunately, there’s a common misconception that a biker jacket should only be worn by younger women. But a biker can be worn with style at any age – it’s not something that should be discarded just because you’re no longer 30.
So, before you write off your biker jacket, or if you’ve been considering investing in one – Belstaff have some amazing bikers – here’s how to wear a biker jacket at any age, regardless of whether you’re 25 or 75.
Maybe you’re going to the gym, doing the school run, spending time in the garden, or simply having a relaxed day. Whether you’re wearing a pair of joggers and a loose sweatshirt, yoga pants, leggings, or casual trousers and a t-shirt, just throw on a biker and you’ll instantly feel more stylish.
We all have our favourite forms of casual wear, be it jeans and a long-sleeved top, that comfy cashmere jumper, or a loose-fitting boyfriend-style shirt. But do you know what goes perfectly with almost any casual outfit? That’s right, a biker. Put one on with your casual ensemble to look effortlessly chic.
A biker jacket is the perfect outerwear to add a little edge to a dress, whether it’s a casual mini or a big tulle number. Throw it over a summer tea dress or maxi for a more laid-back look, make a cocktail or occasion dress feel trendy, or add to a prom, sequin or lace dress for a tougher style.
Going from office to evening can be a challenge. Although you could take a change of shoes or a different top, the simplest and most effective option is a biker. Struggling to dress down a pencil skirt and shirt? Want to go from a meeting to a date? Or maybe you’ve planned after-work drinks? A biker can solve them all.
With so many ways to wear a biker, it’s a piece of outwear that goes with almost any outfit and looks amazing, whatever the occasion. It’s also a jacket that looks amazing on a woman of any age. If you want proof, just look at Kim Cattrall owning hers at 60!
So, ladies, it’s time to own your style. Get out your biker and get ready to rock it!
