By Caroline Ferry, 14 November 2017

The black leather jacket has always been – and will always be – the ultimate goes-with-everything buy. But what about when it’s party season, and the 80s are back with one helluva bang? Well, fear not – there’s a lil' ASOS number for that, too. Check out three ways to work your leather jacket – the 80s edition.

An easy-peasy way to bring your favourite graphic or slogan-printed dress into AW17 is by adding a touch of 80s punk, via this corset-detail outerwear. Add flat, lace-up, chunky boots to survive those nights out that are more a marathon than a sprint.

Happy hour with the huns

Remember when the 80s wasn't back? Nope us neither – nor do we want to. Make your sheer top totally appropriate all over again by layering it under the sweetheart-neckline puff-sleeved jacket. Suddenly, your jeans are lit again, just like that.

Dancefloor filler

So a leather jacket in the club may sound wild, but suddenly, styled sans under layer and with a cheeky disco mini, it all makes sense. Go full Breakfast Club and add a beret – perfect for protecting your mane during a night-out deluge.
