Style Advice of the Week

Nothing makes a chick look more fierce than an awesome leather jacket layered over an outfit. This Fashionista makes it look extra bad, in a good way, by adding combat boots, a white T-shirt, a flannel and a beanie. These are all must-have pieces for a look that is strong and keen but my favorite part would have to be the leather jacket.

You can’t go wrong with leather. It’s something that is timeless and will most likely never go out of style. Within the past five years, leather has been more popular than ever. From jackets, skirts and shorts to leggings, tops and pants, you can find almost any article of clothing in leather. A leather crop top paired with a skater skirt can be a fun and flirty outfit for a night on the town.

You don’t need to splurge on a real leather jacket to look like a bad girl. There are many other options for the on-a-budget college Fashionista. Like this one from Forever 21 or this amazing peplum blazer from Charlotte Russe. The peplum blazer from Charlotte Russe is a perfect example of how flexible leather can be depending on where you’re wearing it. You wouldn’t wear leather leggings to an interview, but you could possibly get away with a leather blazer!

Just like that blazer, this skort is another awesome piece that could be appropriate for many occasions. Leather shouldn’t be limited to mini skirts in a club and it’s a shame what a bad reputation leather can have. Let’s turn it around Fashionistas and work our leather pieces the right way!
