The Leather Jacket Trend

Celebrities and style gurus have taken an edgier approach to this season’s fashions. Although blazers are classic and still very much considered to be a wardrobe staple, leather jackets have become a close second to the more structured piece.

Leather can do several things for an outfit. Firstly, the texture can add visual appeal that you’d have a hard time finding with any other basic fabric type. By mixing feminine, more commonly used fabrics with a pop of leather texture, you’ve taken your classic look to a more modern place. Secondly, leather creates a whole new outfit character. Sounds strange, I know. Think about it though…if you saw someone wearing a midi pleated skirt with a well tailored blazer and a crisp, white blouse you’d probably think, “She looks very nice and is well put together.” If you see someone with the same skirt and blouse, however, you’ll think that same person is vogue, current, AND put together.
