Fifty-somethings can be sexy in a faux leather biker’s jacket

Debenhams blue cross sale - biker jacket

Faux leather jackets are trendy for any age with the right outfit and footwear.  I’m in my fifties and love my bootleg high street branded jeans from a charity shop.  With it I wear, for example, a sexy M&S top and my favourite Kurt Geiger boots.  Worn with my Miss Selfridge’s biker’s jacket that has a girly frill, I feel super cool, oozing with confidence and fashionable. We are the new forties, after all, so why not.

Would you pay tons of money for a designer label?

To be honest, I can afford full price but refuse to pay excessive amounts that  are for celebrity name, and of course, big marketing tactics.  So I wait for the sales.  And … I constantly visit charity shops selling designer preloved stuff.  

Why I selected to buy this particular jacket

Biker jacket with a frill collar

The frills (or trim) caught my attention.  Nowadays, the biker jacket comes in an assortment of styles from fitted, gold or silver zipped, frilly, traditional, cropped, longer length. These frills made this particular  jacket an intriguing design and very feminine.  Plus the subtle and feminine frill extending around the collar, sweeping downwards, along the lapels to the bottom hem of this stunning jacket. It is hip length (I am 5 foot 2 inches) which I prefer as I am uncomfortable in cropped clothes.  And as mentioned before, I feel fashionable and sexy wearing it.

Do you see the same product on the brand’s own website?

Price comparison for biker jacket
Debenhams and Miss Sefridge price war

Yes, yes, yes!  I recommend comparing between a department store website and the actual brand name website to compare prices. And I have included a price comparison above of another design.  Miss Selfridge’s cream Cropped PU Biker Jacket at full price is £39 and in the current sale is reduced to £23.40.  Debenhams sells the same product as Miss Selfridge, using the same image of course, and is reduced to £27.30.

Did you buy it from Miss Selfridge?

Over 50's fashion

I subscribe to the upmarket department store Debenhams and receive promotional emails including their seasonal 70% Blue Cross Sale. Debenhams invest in British designs which include Jeff Banks, Hannah Gibbins and Patrick Grant as an example. I’ve purchased Ted Baker, Kurt Giegler, RJR John Rocha, Red Herring, Mantaray, Dorothy Perkins, Jasper Conran whether it be clothes, footwear or home goods.

And it’s here I purchased my Miss Selfridge biker jacket at a lesser price than on Miss Selfridge’s own website.

So if you are one of the over 50’s women, forget the number, buy a biker’s jacket and say to hell with age!
