STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Leather Lovin’

Style Advice of the Week

Leather looks are a staple in most Fashionista’s closets. The material is always in style but is constantly being reworked so that it can be worn in different ways. One thing about leather is that it always looks high-end. Even if you find a piece of clothing made with high quality faux leather the same luxe effect can be achieved. Recently, leather has taken a punky-chic turn and black leather accents combined with trendy items have been a big hit on the fashion scene. Today’s Fashionista is showing off her on-trend leather ensemble in a way that screams style.

This Fashionista’s two-tone moto jacket is an amazing piece that is so different and current. These types of jackets, consisting of sleeves made of different material, have been spotted on celebs and now they are popping up everywhere in all kinds of variations—everyone can snag a trendy topper that suits his or her style.This jacket is great because it is different than a basic leather moto jacket: the army green canvas sleeves give in an on-trend military inspired pop of style. Today’s Fashionista paired her jacket with a cool black tee with white geometric graphics on it. The best part about her outfit is that the styling doesn’t stop there. While this look would go great with a basic pair of leggings or jeans, today’s Fashionista pushed the envelope even further by pairing her jacket and shirt combination with a pleated faux leather skirt. This leather overload totally works in this look and makes it a true style statement.

To top off this trend setting outfit, today’s Fashionista threw on a pair of opaque black tights and army green combat boots that complement the sleeves of her jacket, tying everything together.

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Leather Lovin’

Uncategorized

Who says motorcyclists and other residential bad boys get to have all the fun? If you’re tired of the old sweatshirt ensemble bringing your outfit down, then look no farther than the perfect leather jacket. They’re warm, absolutely versatile, and never go out of style. These jackets have made special appearances in every decade, and they certainly aren’t stopping now, making them the perfect investment for a winter coat (besides the obvious peacoat, but California doesn’t really have seasons).

Because leather jackets come in all sorts of styles—biker zip, fringes, studs, black, brown, etc.—there is something for everyone. And if the idea of leather either freaks you out or is too expensive, pleather looks just as amazing! Pair it with a scarf to give yourself a soft look, or a sequined top for a trendier one. This fashionista opted for an edgier look, with studs and a biker zip. And don’t you just love her red belt? Even though Mother Nature is trying to steal the sunshine, everyone can outsmart her with this classic wardrobe piece.

Now let’s talk about where you can find the appropriate jacket. Not only is this Kenna-T leather jacket the perfect color brown, but it also has super cute rivets along it. The jacket in itself is a statement piece. The best part about this Paige Premium Denim jacket, besides the awesome acid wash, is that the sleeves zip on and off. You can either wear a trendy leather vest or jacket, depending on your mood.

But the fun doesn’t stop with jackets! Leather leggings look absolutely amazing and are the perfect nighttime legging. Try these leggings from American Apparel for a cheap and easy way to spruce up your look—and did I mention they’re on sale? While I would link you to real leather leggings, they’re all $750+ dollars.

Good luck staying dry/ warm in this unpredictable weather!
