Autumn is set to be the season of the leather jacket, and everyone's got one hitting the shelves soon. Both Miss Selfridge and Dorothy Perkins have launched new lines of luxury leather jackets. The first five on this page are all Miss Selfridge ones. I have my eye on the top middle one - available now for £90 - but the others are going on sale in October. Meanwhile Dorothy Perkins are plugging the 'swing' (bottom right) for £120 in black or taupe. They're a great way to toughen up silk shift dresses to take them into the new season (just add tights and shoe-boots) or, of course, an easy way to top a casual jeans and tee ensemble.
