River Island Light Brown Borg Lined Biker Jacket
Shearling was once the fabric of wheeler dealers (we’re looking at you, Del Boy), but now that Seventies swag is in no short supply when it comes to what we wear, the look is making a mighty comeback. Coats covered in the stuff can be wildly expensive so head to the high street to herd up borg (aka faux sheepskin) alternatives.

Available at New Look, priced £17.99.
