The time has come to look forward. The end of winter is approaching and longer days with brighter nights are just over the horizon. Understandably, BODA SKINS has been known as the brand to get you through your winter struggles, but now, we want to become your label to get you through every season of the year. Of course, as we sit comfortably, waiting for the first of March, we know that spring is only just around the corner.
So, with this being said, we have compiled a short list of stylish combinations that we would wear for the winter-spring transition. Each of these looks can be transferred from everyday style; through to the smart casual looks that can pleasantly blend into the crowd, or be the head-turning show-stopper that takes the crown.

Kay Michaels: Burnt Blue x 220 Washed Stone Grey Tee
Through partnering our Kay Michaels: Burnt Blue leather jacket, with the 220 Washed Grey Tee, a combination of smart-casual and everyday-wear is born. The Kay Michaels: Burnt Blue has been vegetable tanned, while the whole jacket has been crafted from 100% tanned sheeps leather. As one of the latest installments of the new era of Kay Micheals, this style has been designed to be suitable for colder conditions, while still being wearable in the sun. The classic features of the jacket still remain; see the functional shoulder epaulets with branded press studs, as well as the zips at the cuffs which make layering easily accessible if you ever need it. Three external pockets are available to use, each with new and improved BODA SKINS zip pullers. Internally, the lining is a flawless blend of premium cotton and polyester, making room for the two inside pockets that are perfect for all phones and card holders.
With the 220 Washed Stone Grey Tee, it has been handcrafted from 100% certified organic cotton. Designed to effortlessly combine comfort, style and sustainability, this high-quality interlock jersey has been produced in small batches, while being dyed and washed individually. This means that the vintage fade out on each piece will be like no other. The tee has been finished with a cotton canvas label and has been hand-marked with the year it was created. As one of the most easily-transferable styles in the entire BODA SKINS collection, it has been hand-picked to go hand-in-hand with the Kay Michaels: Burnt Blue.
Varsity Ecru x Ryan Taylor ‘X’ Tee
For the ultimate spring look, we would 100% recommend partnering the Varsity Ecru with our Ryan Taylor ‘X’ tee. While the combination could be easily integrated into an everyday casual look, it also most definitely wearable for the smarter occasions, too. The Varsity Ecru is an installment of minimalist brilliance; based on the designs from the previous Varsity designs we have created, the Ecru features a tanned appearance with white leather sleeves. While also including leather piping detail around the armholes, the branding has been kept subtle with a tonal embroidered BODA SKINS badge being integrated into the back hem and front pocket. A textured elasticated rib has been featured at the collar, hem and cuffs, along with two external pockets that have premium high-shine, gun-metal press studs – both of which feature leather trims. With the sleeves being crafted from 100% cow leather, the body is a natural mix of wool and polyamide. The internal lining is a flawless blend of viscose and rayon, while the internal lining has a classy, white lining that makes for civilized sophistication.
Now introducing the ‘X’ Tee to the look, this jersey is a part of the recent BODA SKINS x Ryan Taylor collaboration collection: a project that has strived to combine biker streetwear with the lightning-fast attitude of Ryan himself. This relaxed-fitting t-shirt weighs 170gms and has been crafted from 100% organic cotton. While also meeting all Global Organic Textile Standards, this distressed style references the ‘X’ symbol as a sign of grit and fearlessness. A contrasting ‘SMILE’ is also embroidered onto the chest, adding an extra slice of Ryan’s personality into this new BODA SKINS era.
BODA Trench 2.0 x Wild Heart Tee
When collaborating the BODA Trench 2.0 with our Wild Heart tee, you’re given the perfect combination to tackle the unpredictable spring weather. The BODA Trench 2.0 is one of the most socially-versatile jackets in our collection, offering streamlined details and an exaggerated storm flap. Handcrafted from 100% chrome-free leather, it is effortlessly stylish and falls beautifully with a long wrap-around belt tie. Boasting double-breasted buttons at the front, the zipped cuff details also welcome internal front welt pockets, along with angled pocket flaps and an inverted back pleat. Screaming grown-up sexiness, this classic silhouette promises you a lifetime of style.
When layering your Trench with the Wild Heart tee, you are welcoming BODA SKINS’ love of rock and roll band culture. After years of taking inspiration from bands across the globe, the Wild Heart tee is one of a collection of band tee-inspired designs. The t-shirt’s print embodies a cracked free spirit design, partnered with the classic BODA SKINS logo. This style has been designed to be an oversized, relaxed fit. It features a ribbed and distressed neckline, cuffs and hem and has been crafted from 100% cotton.
The perfect combination for the heart of spring.
BODA SKINS x Ryan Taylor hoodie and gilet
The BODA SKINS x Ryan Taylor hoodie and gilet combination is of course, one that just makes sense. While it is a part of our most recent collection, it’s not to say this style wouldn’t be a perfect fit for the current winter-spring transition. This collaboration is one that isn’t for the faint of heart. As a combination of grit and dynamism, the ‘X’ gilet is the staple figure of the entire collection. With the letter ‘X’ being referenced throughout the style, it stands as a symbol of fearless energy, rebellion and an all-round cutting edge mentality. The jacket itself is made from regenerated nylon with a high-shine and water resistant finish. The fill is crafted from 100% polyester and also includes recycled PET bottles. The finer details include heat-trapping technology, along with an added ‘SMILE’ partnered with the BODA SKINS logo.
Of course, the hoodie stands for the same principles as the gilet. But, made from 100% organic cotton, it meets all Organic Textile Standards. The distressed design includes the signature ‘X’ on the back. Kangaroo pockets are on the front, with the tonal ‘SMILE’ embroidery introduced on the chest. This oversized silhouette is the perfect style for comfortable mayhem, screaming nothing other than style, grit and fearlessness.
