There are a few exceptions to this. Good jewellery that you’ll wear forever. An amazing pair of boots. The perfect handbag, and a leather jacket.

I purchased my first leather jacket when I was in my early 20s, a few days before I headed off on my OE. It cost me a terrifying amount of money, especially right before a big trip, but it was the best investment I could have made. My cost per wear was ridiculous. (The jacket was from Storm, which still includes several seriously beautiful leather pieces every season.)

Now I’ve finally worn it out I’ve got my eye on this jacket, which just hit the floors of New Zealand boutique Moochi.

To me a good leather jacket has to –

a) Have enough hardware to work with jeans and boots, but not too much that it can’t be worn with a silk dress,

b) be short enough to wear with a skirt, but still be OK with pants – trust me it’s a fine balance,

c) be loose enough to wear with a chunky jumper, and most importantly

d) be black.

This may just be the one.
