Fashion Friday: The Leather Jacket

Just in case the not so cryptic title of this post didn't give it away, this weeks fashion Friday is dedicated to leather (well, pleather) jacket. Now I love leather jackets, I think they look so gorgeous on so many people, and at the start of the year when I locked eyes with my leather jacket across the Miss Selfridge store, I thought it would be the start of a whirlwind romance, and to begin with it was, however after the first few weeks of wearing it constantly, I started to ponder, were we really right for each other? So we decided to take a break over summer, see where the dust settles, and now Autmn is rolling in and I've decided we should give it another go. My main concern was that I looked a little try too hard in it, and that it didn't really suit my style, so for this post, I've taken three 'girly' outfits, and then paired them with my leather jacket to see if it can take the 'girly' and make it almost 'glam' like it does for so many others.

Look Three:




So what have I learnt from this post? Well, I think I'm going to give my leather another go, see if we can make things happen this time around, especially now its getting colder, I need something to keep me warm. I think pairing it with more girly outfits is definitely the way I'm going to wear it though, just so it's more me.

What about you? Do you love your leather (or pleather?) Or do you find it hard to pull off too?

  4. You are definitely right for each other! Especially when you wear it with bright, summery dresses.

    I'm still in search for my leather jacket soulmate. It's nowhere to be found in our stores. Well, at least not in my size. :/

  8. I love how versatile leather jackets are, though I tend to wear them quite edgy rather than girly, so like you I may try adding them with more girly dresses and more feminine colours :)
