I really love this time of year. Blossoms everywhere, trees leafing out, but most importantly, this when I finally get to wear all of my jackets.
I already showed off this jacket once in the other post, but haven’t properly raved about it..
So here goes.. I just love it! I have a few Karen Millen jackets and this might just be my favorite one.
It’s actually completely different from their ‘signature’ biker jackets style. Besides the obvious longer length, the locations of the zippers are different, no elbow pads, so the sleeves are narrower. Also it has two buckles on the sides and no decorative belt in the back. And of course the shape.. it’s very narrow in the chest and waist area, but it tapers quite a bit from the waist down, so it looks really flattering. At least while it’s zipped.
Since it’s longer I thought it might as well be a bit warmer, but there’s really no difference in lining.. so it’s just a regular biker jacket for warmer spring/fall days. Still works for me, because my old black jacket had to be retired anyways.
* the decency shorts are technically not a part of the look, I just put them on to not flash anything when I’m on my knees messing with my camera, was too lazy photoshop them out.

My version is sold out, but there’s a same style in navy with different zippers (but higher price tag) available here
