silk + leather.
Winter has become all about this jacket. Honestly, I think about how I can work it into every outfit.
We've seen the leather (or faux leather) jacket have a major moment over the chilling months - not unexpected, as leather accents and statement pieces have become a must have in every chic wardrobe since around 2013 when the material got a major makeover, making it more classic and sophisticated than ever before.
Everyone wants that edgy look.
They'll be making scrubs out of it next.
I am on the leather bandwagon, and I have been for quite some time. For many months I was in a frenzy of buying items with leather trim or embellishments. Then, I dared leather skirts, and even recently pants. Slowly working my way to this moment, a great leather jacket.
Timehop. Frankly, as a child I remember making fun of my mother's leather jackets. Then, I remember a shift in my taste happening - obviously, we are talking 10 years or more of style evolution. Now, here I am, complementing my mother when she walks into my loft wearing that same leather jacket. It's a new age.The cattle should really hide.
Updated versions of the bomber and moto jacket have been catching my eye for months. Thanks to my sweet, aforementioned mother - this little baby now hangs next to my other favorite garments. I couldn't be happier. One of my greatest fears about finally taking the step to a leather jacket was that it would be uncomfortable. This is not the case here.
And, just to spill the beans, I feel like such a badass every time I wear it. Love.
An extra bit of fun? Most of the items linked below are on sale! YAY!
