Sharon Ní Bheolain has caused a stir on social media by donning a leather biker jacket to present the Six One News.

The fashionable presenter chose an edgy look for Monday night's Six One News by choosing a black leather jacket with cropped sleeves, that she wore zipped to the neck.

Sharon knows that it's good to mix the work wardrobe up from time and time and occasionally break away from the safe, staple pieces.

But for some Twitter users, seeing a reporter deliver the news in a leather jacket, was hard to get their heads around.

While one Twitter user pondered if the jacket was work appropriate, another commented that she looked like a "boss".

It's not the first time Sharon, who has worked as an RTE news anchor for over 10 years, has worn a leather jacket to the studio.

In April 2015, she delivered a segment on Irish dairy farming and the end of the milk quota wearing a leather jacket and matching gloves.

Sharon also set the internet alight in February when she debuted her leather jacket from The Kooples on the news, causing the people of Twitter to wonder whether she took inspiration from 'Fifty Shades of Grey'.
