STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Lusting After Leather

Style Advice of the Week

There isn’t a trend I’ve loved more than leather. I can’t get enough of leather pants and tops and accents. It has become such a staple fabric in my closet. I love how it can make a simple outfit go instantly chic. Although I’m partial to my recent pair of vegan leather pants that I want to wear everyday, I’ve recently fallen head over heels for other leather items of clothing. This Fashionista’s cool mix of leather and army green is so fresh and fashion forward, it would make anyone do a double take.

I’m obsessed with how this Fashionista took such a bold jacket and dressed it down to walk around the streets of New York City. The simple black pants let the jacket shine as a statement of its own and the white sneakers and handbag add a pop of different color. This jacket caught my eye because I feel it’s extremely versatile for all Fashionistas. It’s a quick and easy piece to throw on top of any outfit. It’s strong enough to be the center of attention, yet simple enough to accessorize a fabulous outfit.

Finding the perfect leather pieces can be tricky. This Fashionista’s jacket can be found at  Urban Outfitters. If you’re not totally in love with the army and leather look, this Forever 21 jacket is a great substitute. Pick a style you know you’ll wear often. I promise you, you won’t regret having this piece in your closet for future ensembles.
