Fashionisto Spotlight

December is here and it is time to break out those winter jackets. But if you attend college in a temperamental weather city like me, leather jackets are the perfect option. According Gorod Mod Magazine, men’s leather jackets is a fall/winter 2013-2014 trend. Top fashion designers like Givenchy and DSquared2 include brown leather jackets in their collections. Saint Laurent and Givenchy opt for the traditional black leather jackets. Whether you like brown or black, a leather jacket should definitely be in your wardrobe. This is especially true for all you Fashionistos. Let us see how this week’s Fashionisto styles his brown leather jacket.
