Have you seen the new Britney Spears video, “Til The World Ends?” Well, if you haven’t – or even if you have – please do watch again to 1) enjoy the super sexy video and 2) to covet Britney’s amazing Burberry Prorsum jacket.
I have been singularly obsessed with this jacket almost to the exclusion of all other leather jackets (save my lifelong adoration – and current savings for – Rick Owens) for a while and seeing it on Brit Brit almost sent me into a tailspin. I mean, I have a huge love of anything and everything Christopher Bailey does ANYWAY but this jacket SENDS ME. Cropped shape, covered in dangerous studs – it’s EVERYTHING I want a leather jacket to be.
You can go super vampy like Britney did (although I would encourage longer shorts to make sure your lady bits don’t make a special appearance) or layer it over a pretty feminine floral dress for an added touch of glam. A striped tee and shorts with motorcycle boots or leather flats would also look amazing with this jacket. Let’s face it: very little on the planet Earth would actually look bad paired with this stunning piece. It’s art.
Oh, and if you want further proof of my (and the fashion industry’s) obsession with this jacket, please watch as it will make its appearance on Emma Roberts in this month’s ELLE magazine.
