The grunge trend is really a thing and I actually quite like it. I’ve never been one to wear dark t shirts with illustrations of guns n roses and all that type of thing, with neck chokers and that slight dissolved look. Welll I didnt THINK I was anyway. But looking at my wardrobe, it does have a touch of the 90’s vibe to it with ripped jeans and oversized denim shirts. I guess at times you can make your wardrobe whatever you want it to be and you’ll have those key items that will transition from trend to trend, season to season and even decade to decade. This Elvi biker jacket is one of those items. It gives a nod to the grunge trend but really is a classic piece that will last for ages!
I actually took these pictures while I was still pregnant, I had baby C on New Years Day so everything has been put back a while (I’m sure you forgive me!) I know the jacket fits differently now and sits a little better on my waist. I love that this jacket has some simple style features to it so that its doesn’t linger in the boring department. Ribbing and studs keep it interesting! It is a little on the short side but not cropped. It would be stunning matched with a high waist skirt or to grunge up a floral dress.
Personally, I found it a good fit (size 26) although the arms were a little on the snug side. I think that comes from the quality of the material, it will stretch out a little with wear just like most jackets. I’m also a fan of the colour, its charcoal rather than being the usual black which I think lends itself to fit with so many more outfits without looking out of place or too harsh. It’s definitely a wardrobe essential for all year around. Layer it up, dress it up, wear it on your shoulders or dress it down it’s a must have to cater for all styles over as many years as you can manage.
