If anything like us, you're probably thinking about stepping into spring with a lighter leather jacket. Usually a good leather jacket is for life and not just for one season, so it's always worth investing in one that you absolutely love. Which is where AllSaints new season leather jackets come in! We are hugely impressed with their range of leathers, all with individual features such as buckles, cropped sleeves and coming in a variety of shades and finishes making it hard to pick just one. But the stand out feature is the fine Italian leather which makes for the perfect fit. We have particularly fallen in love with the Oxblood Leather Biker Jacket (£398), which features quilting and elbow patches. Shop more springtime leathers from AllSaints below.
Cara Delevingne walked the Chanel AW'13 ready-to-wear show at Paris Fashion week and the collection of both monochrome and bright boucle wool jackets teamed with chain detail biker boots had an ultra modern edge while still managing to maintain traditional Coco Chanel style.
Karl Lagerfeld said about the collection: "I want her to look like what I showed you. The boots make the legs endless, and the colors going up, even if it's in darker colors, as it's better for the women, it's very uplifting."
You can channel your Chanel look into spring by shopping a boucle wool jacket, first made famous by Coco Chanel herself. Look for biker style boucle jackets with new season leather accents, perfect for spring when the weather is unreliable! Shop boucle jackets from New Look, Dorothy Perkins and Mango and team with skater skirts, skinny jeans and biker boots just like Cara Delevingne and co on the Chanel catwalk below.
Jessica Alba certainly has her new season wardrobe sorted! Stepping out in New York wearing a gorgeous silk floral printed skirt teamed with ultra pretty silver and black shoes - the look was toughened up with the most perfect black biker jacket and new season cat's eye sunglasses. Shop something similarly stylish below.
Biker jackets have always been a style staple for celebrities, bloggers and models alike and this season the trend looks set to continue. They're an absolute essential for this autumnal weather and they're a instant way to update your style credentials. Toughen up your look with a Burberry one like Cara Delevigne or get cosy with a shearling lined one as worn by Atlanta de Cadenet.

Yesterday, I went along to Net-a-Porter HQ to take a look at the new Karl Lagerfeld capsule collection. The online boutique have gained a lot of press attention for the collaboration and have already hosted many preview events around the world. The pieces have a cool rock'n'roll edge and include many different textures and fabrics. Highlights include several t-shirts emblazoned with the designers face, wedge sandals and a pink, denim, sleeveless biker jacket.
The collection launches on 25th January simultaneously at locations around the globe including London, Paris, New York and Sydney. If you’re in London, head down to Covent Garden (Unit 3, Covent Garden Market, London, WC2E 8RF) at 3.30pm to be in with a chance of winning a Karl-packed goody bag.
