Why wear it?
“The biker jacket is a good investment,” says Men’s Health stylist Sheh Alkaddri. “It doesn’t go out of style.” Periodically, it can be worn to add a bold twist to your regular outfit. Beyond black, the modern biker jacket can also take on a livelier hue like red or blue.
How do I wear it?
“It can be worn with a T-shirt and jeans, or with a long-sleeved shirt, tie and slim-cut pants,” Sheh says. For footwear, he recommends sneakers, leather shoes or boots.
What should I avoid?
You need attitude when you sport a leather jacket. “So no tank tops or sandals,” says Sheh. Also, avoid cargo pants, which are bulky and do not complement the jacket.
Where can I buy it?
