I bought the Tu premium blue leather jacket with 25% off. It's a lovely colour and the leather is good quality but I'm not sure " it's really me!" I'm nearly 50 but I'd like to think young and fairly with it!! But, I've no idea what to wear it with, how to style it , so unsure if l keep it? Sold out online so if l returned it and had a change of heart I'd not get one back. I'm 5"6 and a flabby size 10 if that helps!? Thanks . Usual attire is skinny jeans and Breton tops , Kharki parka , wellies and dog walking stuff. So out of my comfort zone!

It will look great with your skinnies and Breton tops - job done!

If you want to get more adventurous try it with some floaty midi skirts and dresses. Also harem pants.

Also don't worry about not being able to carry it off. It's essentially just a jacket, not a crop top! Wear it with attitude and you'll feel great.

confusednot sure I've got the attitude to pull it off. I could do with being a bit more ... styled! But at an age when l don't really seem to fit in! I saw some "peg leg" trousers in New look today while shopping for my son. They were nice! Grown up ! Could l wear those with loafers? But do you wear socks then!? grin!? I've Marie Kondo my wardrobe so only supposed to fill it with joy sparking clothes!?

I'm 52 and I really wanted it but like you say it's sold out so think yourself lucky grin . It will look lovely with those trousers and no to socks with loafers.

You are so lucky to get one reduced envy, I paid full price. Mine had it's first outing today as it was warm enough, just.
It's a leather jacket not a neon pink fluffy doo dah! I have a few years on you and my advice is 'just wear it', it's as basic as a black blazer etc.

I've just bought my first leather jacket (a bomber rather than a biker) and I love it despite being shorter and fatter than you. Definitely wear it with the breton and skinnies. I've been wearing mine with a chunky jumper underneath plus an enormous scarf and gloves but am going to have to start shedding layers now it's getting a bit warmer. Even DD1 told me I looked 'cool' grin.

Debenhams do a free personal shopper service...if you take your jacket with you they will find some great styles to dress with it.

Does anyone have a picture of it, personal or online as I can't find an image of it probably as sold out.

There is a photo on Google of the jacket. Search under Sainsbury s th premium leather jacket. Trying to attach an image but failing !!

Artyfarty555 Sun 19-Feb-17 08:10:42
