Two-toned jackets, and tops and pants for that matter, are the new thing and you know it. If you aren’t up to date on your fashion trends, then let me elaborate. Today’s definition of a two-toned jacket means that the sleeves of said jacket are a different color or material than the body of the jacket. Yes, now you know and you’ve probably seen these trendy jackets on some fashionable folks around town. The most common types of two-toned jackets I’ve seen are the classic jean jacket, but with black leather sleeves, and an army green jacket, also with black leather sleeves. Besides looking extremely stylish and receiving envious stares from people without this swanky spring coat, you will also look like a trendsetting vixen. I guess that’s just what leather sleeves do for a person.
That’s just what they did for this week’s Fashionista. From the lace-up booties to the gold detailing on her jacket, her look screams hardcore chic. Her jacket is perfect for this transitional weather because of its weight. And it will be even better when spring actually shows up and she can switch her jeans for a flirty dress. Keep the booties, though; they will complete the grunge inspired look. The light color of the jacket also makes it fit for spring. Additionally, the gold hardware on the jacket make it an acceptable option for a night out.
