Accessories Report

This fall, leather jackets are not just for your Sandy Olsen Halloween costume. They keep you warm and keep you in style. It really is the perfect combo. I spotted this Fashionista leaving class, and after having counted at least eight leather jackets in my classroom alone, I knew it was time to document this trend. Topping my wish list this holiday season is this ASOS leather bomber jacket. I just love the contrast of colors! For something a little more classic, GUESS has a lighter option with a finish that gives it a worn-in look making it the perfect add on for any outfit.

With her basic black leather jacket, this Fashionista pulls off the rocker-chick aesthetic, while still having an overall feminine look. Her chic high bun and pink bag soften the ensemble, and the buckled boots, studded sunglasses and skinny jeans give it some edge. I am a huge fan of the oversized studded shades, especially when they have a little color. You can't help but feel like a rockstar when wearing them, especially when it's in the name. Aside from protecting your eyes, a pair of sunglasses can add so much to any look, doubling as an outfit-enhancing accessory. These flat top lenses from Urban Outfitters, similar to this Fashionista’s, are being sold everywhere lately. After all of that, her black wedges are the final touch. The buckles take a basic black suede shoe up a notch or two and will do the same for practically anything else you find. These heeled boots with the double buckle from Express are the perfect pair to give a feminine outfit an edgy twist.

It’s all about balance in fashion. Finding the right mix of pieces to go together to create your own unique style is key. So, don’t be afraid get creative with your closet!

Spotted: Jean Paul Gaultier showcased a couple of really amazing leather jackets at the fall 2012 RTW show. I’m partial to the one with a fur collar.
