The biker jacket is one of the most iconic pieces of outerwear out there, as it has managed to remain fresh and present in contemporary popular culture and fashion. Biker jackets were originally worn by airline pilots, to then become a key element of the legendary Harley-Davidson movement. Stars such as James Dean and Marlon Brando paired their jeans and their talent with innumerable biker jackets, making it a fashion icon. Today, the biker jacket is an essential part of our wardrobes and, frankly, we wouldn’t know what to do without it!
5 perfect looks with biker jackets
This year, biker jackets are still on trend (aren’t they always?!). If you are looking to give your looks a style twist, choose yours in a colour other than black. Here’s a selection of amazing looks with biker jackets in different colours to inspire you this Autumn!
- A classic: the black biker jacket
- A twist that remains classic: try a camel biker jacket
- For more formal events: slip on a blue biker jacket
- Try if you dare: a red biker jacket
- Flaunt your boho look: wear a green biker jacket
We start our selection with a classic: the black biker jacket. It’s a versatile staple that you can wear with almost any outfit, day and night, just by changing some elements of your look.
From Lookiero, we suggest a casual outfit that would work for anyone: a black biker jacket, a patterned t-shirt, a pair of straight cut jeans and a pair of white trainers. You could wear this look to a concert, but maybe also to brunch with your friends.
If you want to take your biker jacket look one step further, why not think outside the box and find a biker jacket in a different colour? Camel, preferably suede, can look chic and classic.
You can still rock your biker jacket with a pair of leather-effect skinny trousers or leggings, a burgundy turtleneck jumper (which not only is very autumnal but also goes perfectly with camel!) and a pair of black crocodile-textured ankle boots. A look that will turn heads!
If you love biker jackets and you want to add one to your more formal looks, we invite you to try a petrol blue biker jacket. It’s a very flattering colour that can make any outfit look special, and it will elevate both your formal and informal looks.
To add a trendy touch to your classic look, wear a Victorian floral blouse with a pair of camel paperbag trousers and some brown leather or pleather ankle boots: a perfect combination for any of your Autumn evening plans!
If you like risk and you’re not scared to stand out, go for a red biker jacket.
Wear it with some navy blue dungarees, a white jumper and a pair of crisp white trainers. A look that may be casual and informal, but bursting with personality. Will you dare?
If you’re looking for a biker jacket to suit your most romantic or boho days, a bottle green biker jacket is definitely for you. It’s an autumnal colour that is very flattering and versatile, allowing you to wear it in many different outfits.
Our suggestion? Mix it with a long boho dress in a geometric print, a black leather or pleather bag and your favourite pair of ankle boots. For a trendy update to your ankle boots, this season everyone is going crazy for details such as a pointed toe or cowboy style detailing.
As you can see, there really are 1,001 ways to wear a biker jacket. Wear yours with skirts, dresses, jeans… We hope we have shown you that black can share the limelight with many different colours, and one of those might make you shine!
