Dear Stylemma, I’ll be 40 soon and I’d love to treat myself to a fabulous leather jacket. I’d like it to be a timeless style, with a zip that opens down the centre and a collar that’s not too big.

The trick in finding a great leather jacket is to choose something classic that won’t disappear in the crowd. Marks & Spencer’s Autograph Leather Belted Jacket, €270, in tan, has a utilitarian feel to it, and it’ll improve with age. All Saints, Powerscourt Townhouse Centre, D2, tel: (01) 633-9701, always has a great range of leather jackets in stock; the Belevedere Jacket, €318, will take you from season to season, and, with its central zip and small collar, it’s exactly what you’re looking for. For a high-street bargain, check out Warehouse’s Rick Owens-style waterfall jacket, , €195; its leather is incredibly soft. However, if you really want to spoil yourself, then it has got to be D&G’s ultra-soft black leather jacket, with a feminine frill detail down the front, for €880, available at Brown Thomas.
