Our picks of leather jackets for #SS16
We might have lived in our old reliable leather jackets for the winter, but they are going nowhere for spring. The only change being the texture includes a bit of suede here and a little colour there. Now fear not, the classic black style isn't disappearing so you are bang on trend wearing that this season and embrace a bit of the nineties while you're at it.
Just take a look at what Saint Laurent has done with the leather gilet (it's yours for just €3,900 at Brown Thomas, pictured above). But if your purse strings are a bit tighter, we've got some chic alternatives that are equally as stylish. Just a little less pricey.
Don't restrict yourself to the ladies department, ladies, the menswear collections have some great styles too.
If you want to embrace the bomber jacket look I've tried on this one from Zara Man (in small) and it's super comfy. Push up the sleeves to style it up a notch and add some bangles and bracelets. Sporty Spice, eat your heart out (€69.95).
If the traditional black is your thing, then add in the trends through details rather than colour.
Lace up (and down) is coming through in the shape of cotton tops and knitwear, but we spotted this one with lace up detail from Littlewoods that's a steal to last you years (€80).
Wallis is hitting major strides in terms of great trends for less this season. On the top of the list of pieces to get your mitts on is this chic muted grey jacket. Swap the classic black for this fabulous summer piece (€85).
We can't get enough of coloured leather this year and aside from the neutral tones, burgundy and green are major colour trends. River Island is also dabbling in the seventies, with this retro inspired hip length jacket. This one isn't available just yet, so keep an eye on the shop floors if you want to rock the Charlie's Angels look.
Leather, for Spring Summer 2016, is also coming in the form of suede. Sticking around for another season, if you had a suede jacket from 2015, then you'll be bang on trend this year too. If you fancy indulging in the seventies revival, then take a look at this short jacket from Next (€74).
