Get a biker jacket, pop your sun­nies on and you’re ready for any­thing

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - GOING OUT | SEVEN DAYS - Emma Fraser

With the weather not mak­ing its mind up at all it’s still jacket sea­son. This week we look at an­i­mal prints, new ways to wear leather and sunglasses all year round.

We met Jen­nie McGinn ceo at OPSH.com (launch­ing any day now) and got the low-down on her week­end go to look.

1. Jacket:

The biker jacket is your best friend – the best in­vest­ment you will ever make. They go with e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g. Put down this mag­a­zine, go straight out and buy one. All the shops are full of them but if you are in­ter­ested in some­thing dif­fer­ent, look no fur­ther than this metal­lic biker jacket from Moto by Top­shop. I mean it, go out right now!! At ¤68, you’d be mad not to.

2. Skirt:

Sick of tight, un­com­fort­able leather skirts. This style of skirt is a great way of rock­ing the leather skirt in com­fort. Cir­cle skirts will work for all shapes and sizes and give your look a great edge. Leather cir­cle skirt avail­able from Cos, cos­stores.com ¤250 or Alexan­der McQueen, $2,500.

3. Glasses:

Sunglasses are not just for sum­mer. Hide those hun­gover eyes on your way to Sun­day brunch with this gor­geous leopard-print pair from River Is­land. A great way of in­cor­po­rat­ing a pop of an­i­mal print into an out­fit. ¤13, eu.riveris­land.com.

4. T-Shirt:

Leopard print is dom­i­nat­ing the high street A lit­tle goes a long way, be care­ful to tread the fine lin be­fore it be­comes tacky. I love this faded leopard prin that Zara have in­cluded in their A/W de­signs. They have some great T-shirts that will work for ca­sual and dressy out­fits. ¤19.95

5. Run­ners:

Style your run­ners up. Look good and walk around with clouds on your feet. Nike, now suit­able for all oc­cas­sions. Nike Free Runs, ¤83.
