Defrumping and leather jackets

I am trying to be a bit more stylish and dress younger, I am young (ish, 30s) and feel I should make more of myself. Size 12, big boobs, good legs & mum tum. I like the idea of a leather jacket but black looks terrible on me. Any alternative colours out there and also what should I wear it with?

I have a burgundy biker, not real leather, I love it. It's a great colour, goes with so many things.

I have a dark grey one from Whistles. I bought it almost a year ago now but will have a quick check online to see if they still stock it or anything similar.

Mango usually tend to have a good selection of inexpensive real and faux leather jackets so you could start there. Also Topshop (bit more expensive).

Also look at Oasis.

Whistles doesn´t seem to have my one but they do have two non-black leather jackets:

The "Agnes" comes in burgundy and navy: www.whistles.com/women/sale/leather/agnes-leather-biker-jacket-20109.html?dwvar_agnes-leather-biker-jacket-20109_color=Burgundy

The "Payne" comes in a dark olive green (they call it khaki) and a sort of inky indigo:

The Agnes is on sale at the moment too! smile

Hope you find one you like.

Can´t see any non-black leather jackets on Topshop website. Mango has a few (sorry for the US links, I am abroad at the moment and computer is defaulting to dollars). These two are both burgundy; I really like the second one:

There is also a brown aviator style one with a fur collar (think Top Gun) and lots of black ones, possibly they come in other colours but at first glance the website is not clear.

Happy shopping! grin

Muubaa do gorgeous leather jackets in loads of colours. I have a black one and a brown one, I live in the dark brown one at this time of year with knee-boots, skinny jeans and a Ted Baker furry stole/scarf thing to pull it together.

I have a dark brown Muubaa one on ebay at the moment, unworn size 12. I won't link to it in case it's against the rules but feel free to message me if you're interested in taking a look smile.

Thank you all, I will check them out today!! I love the style of the Whistles ones.

MsBojangles I will dig around on eBay too, thank you.

Right I've been through all the options and think I might go for brown. I really like the style of this one

I don't know what their quality is like. Has anyone seen anything similar elsewhere? Can pay more for the right one!!
