Star style steal: Rihanna’s leather biker jacket look for less


Have you seen the pics of Rihanna out and about in London yesterday? She was snapped on her way to a meeting with River Island (who she is producing a fashion range for) and was bang on trend as usual, combining two of this seasons hot looks (green and biker jackets) in her Alexander McQueen leather jacket.

If you have a spare £1,230 you can buy Rihanna’s Alexander McQueen jacket (1) at Selfridges.

If you’re like me and you would like to have money left to pay your mortgage this month, here’s some alternatives…

2. Vintage retro biker jacket from Amazon

I searched high and low for a ladies green leather biker and was just about to give up, when I stumbled on this gem on Amazon for £119.99

3. Gold hardware biker jacket from Mango

Love this jacket from Mango. Shorter than the McQueen one (and obviously black!), but very similar collar detail and front zips. A steal at £44.99.

4. Dree leather biker from House Of Fraser

Moving up the price bracket a bit now, but still a quarter of the price of the Alexander McQueen biker jacket, this leather jacket from House Of Fraser is priced at £295.

5. Whistles leather jacket from John Lewis

I think this is maybe the closest in terms of detail to the McQueen jacket, with again similar collar detail (although only buttons on the bottom collar), front zips and a similar length. Also priced at £295.

So, there’s 4 alternative ways to get Rihanna’s look for less! What’s your favourite? I think I’m going to buy the one from Mango, can’t really go wrong at that price!

  • My favorite would be the Dree Leather Biker Jacket! The Mango is a close second.

    • Sally

      yeah, love the dree one too, but still a little outside my price range. Got too many other things I’ve seen this week on my shopping list already!

  • I LOVE the 1st look!
