I'm going to cut right to the chase: Biker jackets are back. If you're reading this wondering when they even left, I hear you. Leather motorcycle jackets are, in some ways, a wardrobe staple, but in terms of them feeling necessarily current, that ship sailed quite a few years ago. Well, thanks to the ever-circulating trend cycle, they are officially the jacket trend to be seen in this spring. This resurrection is due largely in part to Prada's S/S 22 collection that featured the one leather jacket that convinced the world this once-dated jacket is finally back.
Prada wasn't the only one to make a strong case for the biker jacket, as brands like Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga, Simon Rocha, and more sent out the trend as well. Below, you'll see a curation of my favorite runway looks featuring these jackets, and of course, I shopped out the best biker jackets on the market at all price points so you don't have to.
