Leather jackets are the perfect addition to any outfit to make it more interesting and it is no wonder that it is one of our spring staples. 

Leather jackets can range in style from motorcycle to vintage to clean and classic. We tend to go for the iconic moto jacket you see from streetwear photographers the world over but a new trend that has developed is the retro inspired, collared leather jackets that were spotted during the early fall. They are a cleaner and more elegant look as opposed to the rugged and industrial nature of the classic moto jacket. Both add interest to an outfit and are a great addition to any collection.

Many designers created beautiful pieces that were included in their fall winter collections for 2017 and are now being transitioned to the spring regiment. If you are like us and live somewhere where the winter can be unpredictable, leather jackets are a great transition coat between down and wool coats for winter, and lighter trenches in the spring. 

 

For styling, leather jackets are one of the most versatile pieces you could buy. Where it with biker jeans and a dark top for day to night wear or with a summer dress to add some dynamism to your look. Add red lipstick for even more flare. As McQueen said "I want people to be afraid of the women I dress". Make a statement with your bold look .Make it an expression of your inner power and feel free to try new pieces and outfits with it. A leather jacket adds a chic element to a floral print summer dress while simultaneously making black skinny jeans and a lame top perpetually cool. Also, nothing says sexy quite like leather and lace.
