Biker Chic

Have you noticed, the leather jacket has gotten sexier and more versatile? Whether faux or real, leather adds a dollop of edginess to any outerwear piece. A good leather jacket can be worn with anything from a grungy pair of jeans to a cocktail dress.
The must-have item to rock the biker chic style, of course, is the iconic leather jacket. And you don't need to default to the overused simple black style. You can go for a softer, more bohemian look with brown and beige, suede and fringe details, or a tribunal inspired one with beadings - the possibilities are endless.
Here I opted for a tough-girl moto look with this sleek brown faux leather jacket. It has zipper accents for a touch of utilitarian style, and a removable fur collar for a refined edge. The beige and navy hues from this ensemble serves as a cool neutral and a crisp canvas - so that the leather jacket can shine on its own.  
As with other elements of the biker chic trend it's all about the detail. Panels, quilting, padding, belts and zips all add to the tough yet ultra -slick and modern feel of the neo biker look. Here we are going for a look that is chic and a little tough at the same time. Toughen it up this season - a little leather never hurt anyone =)
