Your Inner Biker Chick
Topshops: Faux Leather Biker Jacket- Price: £52.00
There is something about putting on a leather jacket that gives you that bad girl vibe. This cropped faux leather jacket with silver detailing is the perfect option to add some sass to your outfit.
Body Shape Tip: Everyone needs a leather jacket in their wardrobe; however the length and collar shape is crucial! If you have a rectangle shape then you have the flexibility to wear cropped and hip length jackets. Also you can wear lapels or high collar styles.
If you have a triangle or hourglass shape you have the flexibility of collar shapes but I would recommend a cropped length. This does not break up your shape and maintains curves on your hips.
For round shapes I recommend a hip length jacket as it doesn’t break up your shape. Breaking up your shape can make your body look bigger. (Which it isn’t). Lastly inverted triangles, you have flexibility on length but avoid high collars as it broadens your shoulders.
For the Everyday Bomber
River Islands: Tan faux fur lined bomber jacket -£75.00
This faux suede bomber jacket is so beautiful! After boxy fit bomber jackets have taken over the world this year, this is the perfect fit for an everyday jacket that exceeds confidence and style.
Body Shape Tip: Bomber jackets are beautiful and on trend however be careful on what fabrics you chose as if you have a fuller bust or curvy bottom, half bulky fabric can create an unflattering and uncomfortable shape. This pick is perfect for a rectangle, inverted triangle shape. For pear, hourglass and oval shapes I suggest a thinner polyester fabric,

Burberry and trench coats go hand in hand. They produce the most classic trench coats that will run your wardrobe all winter. I know this is on the pricier end of the spectrum, but if you are going to splurge on quality, then Burberry is the match for you.
