Frequently asked questions about plus size biker jackets
How do I style my plus size biker jackets?
Plus size biker jackets have the amazing quality of wrapping tightly around the skin and allowing it to breathe. This makes them the ideal choice for year-round comfort and coolness. It also means that they go with literally anything, from plus size midi dresses and wedge sandals to skinnies and sneakers. Toughen up your high-heel clubbing outfit with a gritty looking biker jacket, or tone down a casual office outfit with some stretch jeans and flats. The possibilities are endless, especially since leather jackets come in all rainbow colors. Forget maroon and oxblood. Go for colors that speak to your sense of self. As for cut and style, fuller hips call for waist-length fitted jackets, while muffin tops fade into oblivion with hip-length jackets.
Why does the type of leather matter in plus size biker jackets?
Back when Madonna was first grabbing the headlines with her premium biker jackets, leather garments were handcrafted using only the finest materials. Much of that craftsmanship and eye for quality is lost in today's fashion world, with mass-produced styles flooding the market. To ensure that your plus size leather jacket stands the test of time, select for quality, grade, and finish. Good plus size biker jackets are super soft and crafted from lush real leather, suede, nubuck, or faux leather with high-grade fasteners, studs, and stitching.
How do I wash plus size biker jackets?
As hardwearing as they are by nature, plus size biker jackets need love and care to preserve more of their sheen and softness for longer. Unlike plant-based textiles, leather does not take well to liquids or high temperatures and should never be washed, bleached, ironed, or tumble dried. It's best to avoid getting detergents, soaps, and chemicals of any kind into contact with leather jackets. As for suede biker jackets, gentle care and regular treatment with suede sprays will keep them pristine. Specialist leather cleaning is often the most convenient option, though there are professional-grade leather cleaning products that can also breathe new life into a well-worn leather jacket. This includes creams, brushes, and water repellent sprays that can prevent damage for years and years, making the jacket a worthwhile wardrobe investment.
