it took me quite a long time not to own a staple piece such as the biker jacket in more or less classic cut. i guess i've always accompanied it with the idea of it being a too common piece, thrown on with a tee and jeans and thinking it looked cool and hip. i mean it does look that way but it also became sort of a uniform, didn't it? thanks to Topshop i finally have one myself and i fell for it, i must admit. i've had leather bombers but they never quite make the trick as this little biker number. i might not wear it with t-shirts and jeans just yet but it works fine for me with slightly more feminine elegant pieces than i usually wear. e.g. the black silky dress with a bit longer silouette than i am used to or the pointy low sling-backs.
