An Over-sized Biker-Style Jacket

Having done the rounds, season after season over the past couple of years, the Biker jacket has become a sartorial staple. The vogue for all things tough-guy shows no sign of abating, and the latest incarnation for this winter is the exaggerated biker.

The voluminous nature of over-sized garments generally means they look best worn with items that play on the proportions. As a good rule of thumb, think a streamlined silhouette under over-sized outerwear. Cut longer and looser, often with rounded dropped shoulders, this spacious style can be quite unforgiving to more rotund shapes. So if you're bigger on top or carry your weight around the tummy, it's best to approach with caution.

The great thing about this style of jacket is its versatility. The key is to contrast the volume. Get it right and it'll become a hard-working staple of your winter wardrobe. For instance, on your daily commute, team with a knitted jumper, pencil skirt, opaque tights and pair of tassel loafers. For a night out, style with some tailored pants, a crisp white shirt, trophy necklace and vertiginous heels for a look that's fresh, contemporary and off-duty cool.
