STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Leather Up

Let’s bring it back all the way to the early 1900s, where leather jackets (also known as bomber jackets) were mostly worn by aviators and the military. These jackets were known as durable pieces that provided enough warmth and protection to the person wearing them. As times changed, these jackets became iconic within the movie and music culture of America. Today, leather jackets act as pieces that can pull any outfit together.

One of the most common outfits that I have seen pairs a leather jacket with dark wash skinny jeans, a tank top and some pumps. This outfit is simple and chic; however, it is mostly reserved for going out.

What I love about leather jackets is that they can be easily dressed up or down. This Fashionista has incorporated some everyday, causal pieces with a Mackage leather jacket to create an effortlessly edgy look.

This Fashionista instantly adds dimension to her outfit by mixing and matching a basic investment piece with a blush midi skirt and a denim shirt. This outfit would not be the same without her Valentino Rockstud gladiator sandals and simple yet bold arm candy. From top to bottom, her outfit is completely pulled together and combines the causal, comfy, everyday pieces with the leather jacket. Don’t forget to throw on those Ray-Ban shades to not only protect your eyes from the sun, but also to instantly add another element of edge.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “I want to encourage everyone to lean more towards basic investment pieces. A leather jacket mixed with my basic pieces makes everything a little more edgy. Also, a man bun is always necessary.”
