PPW: The Perfect Leather Jacket
Leather is all over the runways this season… especially in very unexpected ways. But if you want a lot of bang for your buck, stick with it in the epitome of its most classic form: the leather jacket.
It can be a pricey up front investment, but the versatility and “wow factor” it can add to any outfit is well worth the investment. You have so many different styles, textures and colors to choose from! Opt for a blazer version to ooze sophistication and style (Such as the “splurge” option above), or discover your inner bad ass with a moto inspired, asymmetrical version (which is right on trend and can be found everywhere this season). You also may look for little details that will make yours a unique piece such as a beautiful hue, quilted details, a peplum fit or great details like buttons or zippers in an unexpected way.
But whatever you choose you can’t go wrong. If you can withstand the sticker shock at first, it can be a piece that will be your absolute go-to for years to come.
Pair it with a sequined dress for a edgy-glam look that would be perfect for new years. Or find your perfect pair with a sweater and scarf. Or put it over your favorite dress. It will instantly dress up any boring tee with the help of a statement necklace. The possibilities are endless… I look forward to exploring them.
