If you don’t already have a leather jacket in your wardrobe, you need to get on it, as this winter 2014 staple can easily go with any outfit. I’ve been building my leather jacket section for seasons now, adding pink, light blue, black, black with studs, gold and now most recently a buttery, camel-colored biker jacket by Ralph Lauren. I know what you’re thinking,
Leather jacket? Who has $1,500+ to drop?
But, with so many options available to customers these days, and look-a-like materials like pu for totally affordable prices, it’s super simple to build the leather jacket section in your closet, with styles and colors to match every type of outfit. Nevertheless, if you’re looking to invest in the real deal – which is so worth it as it will improve with age and last a life time – I recommend opting for a neutral shade like black, gray, brown, or nude. A neutral colored leather jacket can be thrown on with jeans and a tee or a little black dress, without hesitation, and it’ll always give you that polished look and keep you warm.
Below, I’ve styled a pair of Rag & Bone distressed boyfriend jeans with Escada ankle booties, a casual tee, and oatmeal Balenciaga City bag for a brisk day in La Jolla, CA. This outfit will easily take me from day to night in style, and most importantly, comfort! Shop my favorite leather jackets as well as pu biker jackets.
