My Go-To Black Biker Jacket With Purples & Pattern Mixing

Biker jacket, purple skinnies & tan boots
Today I’m wearing my go-to autumn piece – a black biker jacket – over at Rachel the Hat where I’m guest posting AND guest hosting today!

Pop over to my lovely friend Rachel’s wonderful blog to see the rest of the post PLUS her Passion for Fashion Friday link party where you can also link up your own outfit.

When she said the theme was my go-to item, I knew it had to be my black leather biker jacket – a great jacket is an autumn essential in the UK. I bought this one last year after many years of searching for the right one, and it looks just as great with skinny jeans as it does with a floral dress. For a faux leather it’s unbelievably soft and a pretty good alternative to real leather, which would have cost me a fortune. I was having a bit of a mauve moment that day (a shopping trip), and discovered a great new colour combination of black, purple and tan. I’m always up for a bit of pattern mixing, and the galaxy snood and black and white polka dot shirt look perfect together.

So that’s my style in a nutshell – pretty colourful with an unexpected pattern mix for good measure and tons of accessories.

Happy Friday and happy weekend everyone – more tomorrow!

    Fabulous mix of colours. Love the way the boots tone with your hair. And purple is always a winner for me.

    Styled very well. As always. I so often think of you when I want to create an outfit. Trying to figure out what made you come up with a combination. What little things did you use to pull things together. Learning slowly, very slowly.

    Such a wonderful and hip look! Black with purple and camel. I am so glad that I've come across your blog.

    Since I too am a copper red head. I do like purple with red hair. I think it really brings out your features, and the scarf colors pull it together. 🙂
