The Biker Jacket: Pt1 – With a Maxi

I thought i would do a little feature over the next couple of weeks featuring a piece that we all know and love; The Biker Jacket.

I have had my eye on this one i am wearing for months, then the kind people at Next offered to send one to me (yay!)about a month ago. So i thought i would show you lovely people all the different ways i like to wear my Biker Jacket.

So here it is:

Part One: Biker with Maxi Dress

 Maxi dresses aren’t just for summer,oh no no, this fine knit, long sleeved maxi dress is one of my favourite winter wears. I manage to sneakily put my thermal leggings under there too so, super warm and toasty. I have had this dress for couple of years and each year i really enjoy wearing it and remixing. When the biker jacket arrived this wasn’t the first or even second outfit i thought to put together, it actually came in to me one night last week and i thought i’d just have to try it!

 The burgundy jacket is such a great colour for adding to my wardrobe, it is the type of colour that goes well with blacks, browns and all the colours in between. I chose a brown type pallet for this outfit, finishing off the simple maxi dress with a slouchy cream hat and my tan sparkle booties.
I was really pleased with how the outfit turned out actually (i do my best thinking at night time;-) and now i’m looking for more maxis to pair with the biker jacket. I want to try a maxi skirt avec en biker jacket too!

i wore this outfit on Sunday when my darling mum had Neo for a few hours and we strolled around town and stopped for some coffee. It was very nice ๐Ÿ™‚ As much as i love my son, a few hours apart is good for the soul!  And the outfit was super comfy, the dress has a lot of stretch… my fav kind, heehee! Hubby also really liked the jacket… think that maybe he could finally relate to a piece of my clothing. Normally he just doesn’t get it and gives me looks of confusion. But this he liked! Maybe he thought i would be pulling out a surprise Motor bike from somewhere, i don’t know. But either way he appreciated my new beautiful jacket.

    Argh I've been looking for the 'perfect' biker jacket for months, but forgot to look at Next. I think sometimes wearing jeans/trousers with a biker jacket you feel like you should be on a harley ๐Ÿ™‚ x

    I love the colour of your jacket, I've recently just got one myself and I have barely taken it off

    Love the glitter on these boots, and this dress and jacket work so so well together!
    I rediscovered a cropped biker jacket this year which I'd purchased about 4 yrs ago and forgotten about, so brought it out and removed the tags and have been wearing it a lot this year!

    That combination is so unexpected, but it really works well!

  6. January 9, 2013 / 2:05 pm

    Oh my gosh it is conker-coloured!! I would never think to wear one with a maxi but this outfit is just gorgeous. You little genius you.
    I do have a biker jacket, it's light grey =) maybe I'll feature it and link back to your biker jacket posts! xx

    We love that maxi dress and it works so well with the biker jacket!

    I don't have a biker jacket as I have never managed to find one that suits me. I love this on you and especially over the maxi dress, it is two items I really would have never guessed would look good together, you most certainly do your best thinking at night you are right! Sounds like a perfect afternoon together. I really like the socks peeping out of your boots too, made me smile ๐Ÿ™‚

    LOVE this outfit, the jacket is amazing x

  10. January 9, 2013 / 6:26 pm

    Oh, thank you so much for calling it burgundy and not oxblood. Ugh…I hate that that's a thing.
    Anyway. I super duper completely absolutely love you in this outfit!!!!! The colors suit you so beautifully, and you can pull off a slouchy hat like no other. Love, love, love.

    loving this! I just found your blog from Shanna's link up! woot woot! yay for a new bloggy buddy! excited to be following along now! stop by and say hi if you get a chance. i love making new friends!

    That's a great way to style a biker! The burgundy is such a refreshing chane to the usual black as well, it's lovely! I do have a biker, and it usually gets slung over everything and anything (I have a black one so it goes with most of my wardrobe). I like maxi dresses, just not on me, so ill leave you to rock that look! ๐Ÿ™‚ xo

  13. January 9, 2013 / 10:04 pm

    I do not own one, but now I WANT TO! Super smart and thrifty way to restyle a dress like that also. I might break out a maxi tomorrow now!

  14. January 9, 2013 / 10:14 pm

    I love biker jackets too! That's a good color combination you have there…you just gave me an idea on how I can still wear my maxi dress. Thanks for sharing! xx

    It's Me kaye!

  15. January 9, 2013 / 10:25 pm

    Such a beautiful jacket – the colour is incredible!!

  16. January 9, 2013 / 10:29 pm

    I always struggle with styling my maxi dresses and skirts for winter. You styled this perfectly! Thanks for the inspiration. Also super cute glitter boots.

  17. January 9, 2013 / 10:54 pm

    ooo i am LOVING that jacket with a maxi skirt. you know what, i've never thought to pair it like that and i have a ton of maxi dresses. how have i been so blind?!

  18. January 9, 2013 / 11:12 pm

    I don't have a biker jacket, but I might consider getting one just to wear with a maxi dress!! I have a "winter" maxi dress, a stripy knit one from H&M. It's very snug. I miss wearing it now I'm "with bump"! x

  19. January 9, 2013 / 11:39 pm

    Love this look and no I hadn't thought of wearing mine with a maxi but will now. I love your dress too – still on the look out for a nice patterned maxi!

  20. January 10, 2013 / 1:43 am

    I have a basic black maxi dress that I almost never wear. Why? I have no idea! This post is giving me inspiration to try something unexpected with it!

  21. January 10, 2013 / 7:39 am

    Jackets like this are just so nice and versatile. I wish I had a pretty brown one like this! I really love the color scheme in this outfit. It reminds me of fall. This is also one of the cuter maxi dresses I've seen! It looks very cute on you! I like the more fitted shape and the stripes. Those boots are the best things ever too.

    I love this combo it's feminine but with a bit of a harder edge – you look fab! :o) Thanks for being a Wardrobe Weds player this week.

  23. January 10, 2013 / 9:50 am

    I absolutely love this jacket the colour is just fab. I have a black biker jacket (that isn't nearly as nice as this one!) and I would never have thought to put it together with a maxi like this so thank you – you've inspired me!

  24. January 10, 2013 / 12:58 pm

    I love this outfit, the jacket is a fab colour and I LOVE that maxi!

    Love the jacket, and your gorgeous boots, ahhhhhhhhhhhhh

  26. January 10, 2013 / 4:43 pm

    love your biker jacket, i wear mine all the time!!
    also i recognise the background of your pictures – are you from Aberystwyth? I went to uni there and your pictures look so familiar! x

  27. January 10, 2013 / 4:59 pm

    I just got a biker jacket for Christmas, and I haven't been able to wear it yet because we've had way too cold of a winter, but I can't wait to start wearing mine with dresses!

  28. January 10, 2013 / 8:16 pm

    I do own a biker jacket but I'm looking to upgrade as mine is a little bulky – it's been too cold to wear it recently though!

  29. January 10, 2013 / 8:38 pm

    I wore my biker jacket just today with a vintage maxi skirt ๐Ÿ˜€ x

  30. January 10, 2013 / 8:38 pm

    Oh and you look fantastic by the way ๐Ÿ˜€ x

  31. January 10, 2013 / 9:30 pm

    I'll have to try my jacket with one of my maxi dresses. Mine might not be fitted enough ๐Ÿ™ You look wonderful!

  32. January 11, 2013 / 10:48 am

    You have a really nice blog. For sure I looked in here more often.

    You look cute <3

    Have a nice day ๐Ÿ˜‰

  33. January 11, 2013 / 7:45 pm

    Biker jackets have been on my mind lately! I just might have to get one after reading this post ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love the color of your jacket- not easily found, I must say! And you can really diversify what you wear a biker jacket with. I have a cheap black one that I use to do such a thing, and I love it! And your outfit is adorable! -Jessica L

  35. January 12, 2013 / 9:37 pm

    I love this outfit!!! It all works perfectly together, and you look great. I especially love the matchy socks peeking out. ๐Ÿ˜€

  36. January 14, 2013 / 6:07 pm

    This is such a great look- I love it! That jacket is awesome and I seriously am in love with those boots. Very cute ๐Ÿ™‚

    The biker jacket is a fantastic colour, really rich and autumnal looking. Such a lovely, cheery outfit to brighten these grey days we're having x
