Fash Trends - Leather Jackets


With chunky heels, fur, and sequins galore, it's time to put the spotlight on this seasons edgiest trend, leather jackets. Style maven Rachel Zoe swears by leather jackets because of their extreme versatility and has even incorporated them into her own fashion line. I've never really thought of myself as a leather jacket kind of girl, but with the vast variety filling our favorite fast fashion stores, it's sort of hard not to fall in love with one style or another. I can certainly appreciate the fact that a pair of skinny jeans and a white tee can instantly be transformed into an edgy ensemble by simply adding this one addition. Above I'm wearing a Forever 21 maxi in my favorite color, plum purple, which I paired with my new H&M faux leather jacket and Fibi & Clo sandals, to add a little dazzle to the ensemble. If you're easily intimidated by a black leather jacket or get visions of Cher while pondering your purchase, opt for a more feminine style like an aged brown or grey one. For you leather lovers try rocking ones with zippers, clip details and even exaggerated shoulders for an extra punch. Below are some of my favorite celebrities rocking leather jackets all around Hollywood. Whose look do you love the most?

LOL I loved your sequin post so much I had to give your blog a shout out in my newest post, a sequin dress post where I styled my sister

    Anyway, your maxi skirt is gorgeous too and I love the ring that complements it. Great color, I totally see why the deep plum is your fave.
