March 9th, 2016 at 2:00am

Let’s talk about leather.

From a timeless jacket to a modern pair of leggings or pair of chic booties, leather has this unique way of adding style and a little bit of edge to any outfit. It is no longer a staple in the wardrobes of biker chicks or the cast of Grease, but the everyday Fashionista/o too.

Leather jackets are particularly popular in Europe because of the fine leather markets in Italy. They are crucial in street style and can be found paired with dresses and heavy shoes, or a pair of jeans and a graphic T-shirt. It is a piece for guys and girls alike, and one that we can count on to make any look a little more chic from day to night.

This Fashionista rocks a classic leather jacket in her very European-inspired look. It is perfectly edgy when pair with her ripped, gray jeans and Converse sneakers. On a warm winter day, it perfectly pairs with a big, maroon cotton scarf.

Gray jeans are very underrated in a college student’s wardrobe, but when done right can really add something different to your style. In this look, the Fashionista chooses gray jeans to keep things neutral. By keeping the rest of her look neutral as well, the focus of her street style can be on the leather jacket. The rips at her knee complement the leather jacket, and the cuffs at her ankle show off the high-top Converse we have all come to love again.

The sneakers can be such an ideal piece for any Fashionista/o’s look because they are always comfortable and fashionable. The scarf, that truly completes this Fashionista’s outfit, adds a little bit of color to her neutral look. It is a warm and feminine touch when contrasted with the leather I’m loving.

How To: Make leather part of your look, just like this Fashionista. For the upcoming spring, pair it with some light wash jeans and a cute neutral shirt to ace your classes and your street style.
