Yes, You Are A Leather Jacket Guy. And These Jackets Prove It

  Yes, You Are A Leather Jacket Guy. And These Jackets Prove It Everything you need to know about pulling off one of the most divisive pieces in your wardrobe Should I wear a leather jacket? It’s a question that's been asked by any man who’s ever shrugged on a biker, imagined himself as Marlon Brando leaning nonchalantly against a Triumph Firebird, then realised he actually looks more like that weird pub bloke who drinks Doom Bar and has too many Ramones badges. In other words, deeply uncool.

The British style expert picked out a selection of the best pieces available online. While horizontal stripes have a tendency to make you appear wider, a narrow chevron draws the eye in and down, creating a sleek look, especially with longer, midi or maxi dresses like this one.

HIGH IMPACT

Too many of us shy away from colour and stick timidly to neutrals at this time of year. But the easiest way to give your look some punch is with a bold yet classic geometric pattern.

There’s no better way to lift your mood. Yes, chevrons are a bold option but if you’re looking for something high-impact and low effort this dress will do the trick.

You don’t even need to fuss about accessories, just let this 1970s inspired print do all the talking.

But this is the sophisticated way to have fun with colour.

The sharp zig-zag lines toughen up your look and make a refreshing change from checks and florals.

Another common fear with prints is that they will be unflattering. But chevrons are the perfect secret slimmers.
