Leather Jackets

As pretty florals, safari prints and vivid colour kick off this Spring season, so does the leather jacket. Fast becoming this years most popular transeasonal trend, you’ll be swapping your trench, cropped jackets and cute cardigans for the tougher trend. Part grunge, part glam rock with some versions oozing sophistication, the leather jacket can suit any style. Teamed with denim jeans, or a cute cropped version warming the shoulders when wearing a frock you’ll enjoy mixing pretty with dangerous. Pre-Autumn, leather pieces graced runways with many brands releasing a version of the jacket. I’ve hunted down the favourites for Spring because leather is back even for warmer weather.

Nique Womens Dakota Jacket
This is the jacket for the leather first-timers. It is a classic fit with limited detailing and the leather is exceptional quality. Simple collar and ribbed material trimmings around the waist and a few inches on each cuff to soften the look. It has one centre zip and sits comfortably at the waist. Perfectly tailored, the Dakota Jacket is great investment piece to work through the seasons.
