Tuesday Thrills - Studded Biker Jackets

The biker jacket has evolved from personal protective gear for motorcyclists to a fashion statement for women who may have never been on a bike. A leather jacket adds an edge to modern dresses and feminine clothes. This season, the studded range adds some extra adornment to your everyday cropped, roughed-up leather jacket.

Pictured left is a heavily silver-studded black leather biker from Burberry Prorsum. It has an asymmetrical zip, zip-up cuffs and pockets, with multi-sized studs on the collar, belt and sleeves. It is priced at £4 950,52

In the middle is a studded, cracked leather jacket by Just Cavalli. It's simpler and perhaps more wearable than the previous jacket. The shoulders and collar are edged with silver studs. The fit can be adjusted with buckled tabs at the back of the waist. It is priced at £1 917,15

To the right is a lighter cotton cropped jacket from Danish brand Day Birger Et Mikkelson. It still has that biker appeal without being too tough and can be worn  on cooler Autumn days. The jacket is available in a chalk beige colour and is embellished with gun-metal studs. It is priced at £597,89

Wear your biker over tees and jeans, body-con dresses or with floaty printed frocks for a pretty punk-rock look. All jackets are available online from net-a-porter.
