Got the blues? So do I! And even though I spend my summers in the Asian tropics, I’ve also had a serious craving for leather jackets lately. It only makes sense to bring these two obsessions together. Mugler’s royal blue stunner (on Shopbop for $2,765) will be the first to enter my court of couture. That oversized, asymmetric collar just can’t be denied. See which other covetable true blues are waiting in the wings:
Jason Wu Leather Motorcycle Jacket: Jason Wu loves color (he was even involved in a nail polish collab in 2011!), so while this bright blue shouldn’t shock, its electric sheen most certainly does. At Neiman Marcus for $3,795.
Elie Tahari Mia Leather Jacket: This turquoise Mia is another option for ultra-feminine Snobs. You get the moto collar, but none of the flashy metal. At Neiman Marcus for $998.
Theory Ford Tailored Leather Jacket: Not really a biker babe? A sleek baby blue jacket sans hardware will be just as stylish. At Neiman Marcus for $1,285.
Acne Leather Outerwear: This almost denim blue is a sweet compromise for those who can’t decide between a leather or jean jacket. Just make sure to take good care of it – there’s a reason bikers don’t wear light-colored suede! On The Corner for $1,290.
Helmut Lang Reversible Leather and Jersey Biker Jacket: Think racing stripes are the biggest surprise up Helmut Lang’s sleeves? Turn this bad boy inside out, and you’ve got a classic black leather jacket. It’s like a two-for-one! On NET-A-PORTER for $1,495.
