A great leather jacket is right up there at the top of my list of closet staples, along with perfect-butt-skinny-jeans and the LBD. I talk a lot about steals and splurges on this little blog, and I think it’s important to know the difference between worthwhile investment pieces and trendy things you should scrimp on. A great leather jacket is definitely worth the splurge, and it can live in your closet for years and years. 
It really doesn’t matter what color or style it is (or whether it’s real leather or an animal-friendly faux version) as long as it fits like a glove and matches your personal style. If your aesthetic is classic and polished, opt for a sleek bomber or blazer. Edgy and innovative, look for something with interesting details like zippers or asymmetric lines. Super girly, add a little ruffle
I love this moto version from m.marie for its cool detailing and zip-up hoodie. It’s perfect to throw over a girly dress to tone down the sugary-sweetness, or over a tee shirt and jeans for a super quick outfit that’s super chic.  
What about nine to five? Give your blazers a break and pull your leather jacket over a simple blouse and a pencil skirt or tailored trouser, or a sheath dress. The trick to pulling this off is keeping your shoes and jewelry simple, and maybe opting for a softer brown or caramel version instead of black.

    A leather jacket is a type of clothing—a jacket-length coat—usually worn on top of other apparel, and made from the tanned hide of various animals. The leather material is typically dyed black, or various shades of brown, but a wide range of colors is possible. Leather jackets can be designed for many purposes, and specific styles have been associated with the subculture called greasers, biker, military aviators, police, and music subcultures (punks, goths, metalheads, rivetheads), who have worn the garment for protective or fashionable reasons, and occasionally to create a potentially intimidating appearance

    >I am in love with those shoes! I'm always a little wary of the platform heel because at 5'8 i don't always want to sneak in the extra inch or five it can offer. However, I would put that all aside for those heels!! Where did you find them!?

  • Katie 01/02/2011 at 7:29 pm

    >Totally with you on investing in quality pieces like this! LOVE this jacket and love these shoes! :)

    >Love the leather jacket. But the ones I've been trying on have a really hardcore or asymmetrical zipper. And now I know why I don't like them–they're too edgy for my style. Thanks for the tips!

  • Sarah Beth 12/31/2010 at 5:34 am

    >You are so right about the leather jacket! :) When I read the part about the different leather jackets to match different styles I had to laugh- I have three just like the ones you described! <3

    >Agree that every gal needs a leather jacket. I've been looking forever, but no luck so far. For some reason, whenever I try on leather jackets, I feel like I look awkward in them. It's hard to tell if the jacket is just not a fit for me… or maybe I'm just not used to seeing myself in a leather jacket, so everything looks awkward.

  • Fashion Therapist 12/30/2010 at 10:20 pm

    >I love the leather jacket look but I can never seem to find the right one. Alas my search continues…I absolutely adore yours.

  • Kristen 12/30/2010 at 9:49 pm

    >I love this outfit – the jacket is so stunning! I'm on actively on the leather jacket hunt myself. I've been lusting over that GAP leather bomber, but I really wish they had it in a lovely soft gray shade instead. Happy New Year! :)
