The Soft Biker Jacket

The spring runway shows made it clear that the biker jacket is not going away any time soon, and now we have the next evolutionary stage in the biker jacket craze: the soft biker jacket, which features breathable fabrics (wool, cotton, fleece) that downplay the hard edginess of the traditional leather skin. This easy-to-wear piece serves a dual purpose (sweater or jacket) and can be comfortably and casually worn underneath your heavy winter coat. If you're bold enough, pair this with those tough leather leggings we've seen on celebrities like Anne Hathaway, or soften the style with a winter floral dress.
