STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Loads of Leather

October 8th, 2015 at 2:10am

What is one statement piece that can be pulled from your closet for almost any occasion? A leather jacket, of course! The versatility of a leather jacket is completely worth the hunt of the perfect one. I absolutely love how one day you can wear it with a floral skirt and the next it can be paired with black skinny jeans, creating a whole new look.

Leather jackets made their appearance in the 1950s among the “greaser” teenagers. James Dean’s daydream (as Taylor Swift would put it in her hit song “Style”) vibe put the hype of the leather jacket in full throttle. Now, the ‘50s are making a comeback with current teenagers swooning for the cool looks made famous years ago. Switching up roles, women are giving the guys a run for their money and are looking fierce in their all-leather ensembles. Supermodels to streetwalkers will continue showing off their greaser style through this fall.

This Fashionista chose to go down the more edgy road when it came to styling her jacket. Keeping it classic, she wore a white button-down shirt. The tied bottom adds just a pinch of girliness that completes the look. To stay with the black and white theme, she wore black high-waisted skinny jeans from H&M and heeled Chelsea boots. You can find some similar ones here! For her accessories, I love her classic Ray-Ban aviators and sleek Michael Kors purse. Finally, her leather jacket from 7 For All Mankind thrown over her shoulders makes the whole look more casual for a day out with friends, all while maintaining her fierce outfit. If you are on a hunt for a similar leather jacket that will not leave too much of a dent in your wallet, here is one from H&M!

I’ve learned one thing so far this fall and that is, once you go leather you never go back!
