With the weather being as it is, it’s no use reading about the ‘perfect summer dress’ or ‘ultimate bikini bargain’ unless you are one of the lucky few who have a hot sunny holiday coming up.
The key piece right now is the leather jacket, whether it’s studded, bomber or cropped, it’s the kind of thing you need all year round, especially in Britain when being caught in the rain is always imminent.
Yet a good quality, real leather jacket is hard to find, so here is the best of the high street!
Firstly, it’s unrealistic to think you can get one cheaply. You can always go for a pleather jacket, in particular this £52 version from Miss Selfridge, however faux leather simply won’t last as long or wear as well as a real leather jacket would. There is a reason there is so much vintage leather out there!
So firstly. Best bargain of the high street has to be these two ASOS leather jackets.
£100 for a real leather jacket is a rarity, and the two different styles, the collarless quilted or the classic means you can go for either style without having to fork out so much money! And don’t forget your student discount for an extra £10 off!
Then Zara’s version of the leather jacket, a biker style with numerous zips at £99 is an amazing price for Zara who are known for their good quality. It may be sold out online but it is still floating around in some stores so keep an eye out for this one!
Yet the ultimate bargain? Bershka’s £79.99 leather jacket in the sale for £59.99. A bomber style with long sleeves is the perfect style to sling over a summer dress when hit in the rain.
The best of the leather jackets all for under £100! Think of it as an investment as opposed to a splurge, especially when you check your bank balance at the end of the month…
