Grazia's Style Editor Polly Knight was challenged by Very to show you how to remix it into your AW17 wardrobes to create several on-trend looks, below. Plus, don't forget to watch our interative video to shop the key items you need to wear with a leather jacket...

Forever Leather

This double-duty cover up is just as safe for work as it is for the bar. Wear it with tailored trousers and figure-hugging knits to boss the work day, and maybe even bag that promotion you've been working towards.

And remember, any knitwear with frilly, flowing sleeves will pair perfectly with a biker jacket. Simply leave the end of the sleeves out of the blazer, just like our model has done, for a look that screams attitude.

Cool-Girl Status

Leather biker jacket, Jeans, Spotty blouse, all from Very.

Let's face it: the classic black leather jacket has, and always will be, effortlessly cool. And with its help, it's oh-so-easy to amp up any off-duty outfit. While a simple patterned shirt and denim jeans might not be the first items of clothing that spring to mind when you think 'fashion-forward, cool girl style', when paired with a leather jacket, this outfit will take on a whole new persona.

Boho Babe

Want to be a biker chick, but lack the attitude? Toughen up a pretty outfit by throwing a leather jacket over a bohemian-inspired dress (the more prints and patterns, the better). Finish the look off with some dainty earrings and patent boots, and you'll be ready to go.
