Style Advice of the Week

Whether you are preparing to hit the slopes or heading home to recover from midterms this spring break, the perfect piece for any occasion on your week off is a leather jacket. This classic jacket has been made a famous fashion piece time and time again. From the classic rock icon Joan Jett to the memorable movie Grease, leather continues to be a piece that evokes an edgy chicness. The quintessential leather jacket is simply one of those pieces that makes you feel trendy when you pair it with anything.

This leather loving Fashionista wore her jacket layered over a feminine floral dress and a hoodie. On her head she wears a black beanie to add to the edgy style. Tied around her waist is a light blue chambray shirt for some added color. As for shoes, some black rocker chic boots are worn to complete the look.

Are you into this look, but not the material? You can opt for faux leather and still have the same effect. Leather goes with just about any trend. A leather jacket can be worn with an all black ensemble and some combat boots for the biker chic look. It can also be used to contrast a delicate dress so you can stay warm while maintaining an edge to your outfit as this Fashionista has done. For everyday outfits, a leather jacket can be worn over jeans and a simple white or graphic T-shirt. If you want to make this outfit transferable from day to night, replace your day shoes with some pumps and you have an outfit that’s ready for everything from a movie date to a evening shopping trip.
