That black biker jacket doesn't have to be the only thing in your wardrobe made of leather, says Amy Parsons-King.
We've been seeing black leather biker jackets slung nonchalantly over off-duty models' shoulders for the past few autumn/winter seasons and it looks like this effortlessly cool trend will continue.
