There is nothing more classic than a black biker jacket. That being said, while we love our worn-in leathers (or their faux counterparts, if that's what you prefer) as if they were a second skin, we can't help but be tempted but all the new options out there that are anything but basic.
From bright hues to hand-painted designs to oversized shapes, these luxurious, out-of-the-box cover-ups are just what we need to up our winter layering game. And hey, we know from experience that a leather jacket can last a lifetime (and even well into the lives of your offspring — thanks, Mum!). So...we think we can guarantee that these bad boys are a sound investment.
