Hi Lovelies, hope you are doing well.
There is no doubt that I love classic pieces but once in a while, I love some edgy look. One of the edgiest piece in my closet is the LEATHER jacket. Just like a structured blazer, I think every one should have one leather jacket in their closet.
A few qualities you need to know about the leather jacket are……
1, they can be dressed up and also they can be dressed down.
2, they can be worn in the colder weather and also in the warmer weather. They have the ability to keep you warm or cold. They are temperature sensitive.
I made a new video on my youtube channel sharing how to choose A PERFECT LEATHER JACKET and thought to share same with you. If you are not a video watching person, here are my TIPS in texts and some STYLES of Leather Jacket I love.
1, Invest in a GOOD QUALITY ONE i.e real leather, they last longer/forever. Even though there are a million and one design to choose from, I always recommend that you choose classic. That way you get more wear out of them.
2, Choose a CROPPED FIT. They look better on you and they go with everything from skirts to maxi dresses to trousers. The cropped ones look nicer especially on women.
3, Go a SIZE SMALLER. Your leather jacket will stretch with time. The more you wear your leather jacket, the more stretch it will experience.
A new leather jacket is not too different from a new pair of leather heels, the more you wear your heels, the more stretch it will experience and eventually it will conform to your feet. Same rule is applicable to the leather jacket, the more you wear your leather jacket the more stretch it will experience and would eventually conform to your body.

4, When you go and pick out your leather jacket, ZIP IT UP/BUTTON IT UP all the way and lift your hands to the top, if you are able to do that without any stress, that is your perfect size. If you struggle to lift you hands up to the top, that is the wrong size for you. If that is the case, Choose your normal size, don’t go a size down like I suggested earlier.
This is very important so your jacket is not too small on you when you buy it and also it isn’t too big on you when it stretches eventually.
5, Buy BROWN. If you are not a “black wearer” / you do not like to wear black, buy a brown one. Brown is equally stylish and you can mix and match it with other colours.
6, If you can, try and choose the one with LITTLE OR NO EMBELLISHMENTS. You will get more wear out of it.
