17 BIKER JACKETS THAT PROVE WHY THIS ITEM IS A WARDROBE MUST-HAVE
words by LUCY BULLING • Fashion
sometimes there is nothing better than a classic, and the leather biker is a wardrobe must-have to the very core.
The biker jacket is a timeless fashion symbol; what was once a practical item of clothing - designed for the high-speed road racer - has become a fashion staple worn by men, women, and rebels alike. The statement piece is as versatile in it’s design as it is in it’s styling, and over time has had many iterations to remain at it’s deserving pinnacle of fashion relevance - no matter the time, place, or climate. Much like the denim jean, classic white-t, or LBD, there is reason the biker jacket has an icon status as famed as those who made it so (Drew Barrymore, Blondie, Marlon Brando); the biker is a true wardrobe must-have.
