How We Style It: Leather Jackets

Ever since I saw Sandy rock a leather jacket at the end of Grease as part of her 'bad girl' makeover, I've wanted a leather jacket. The thing about leather jackets though is that they are expensive of course, but also elusive. Finding the perfect one takes some serious searching, but once you've found it, your life will never be the same. Sort of like finding 'the one,' but in fashionista terms :)

Go on with your bad self Sandy!

I found my leather jacket back in LA about four years ago. After months of searching, my friend Noelle and I walked by Ann Taylor and there it was. I could hardly believe my eyes- I mean Ann Taylor? Hmmmm. But Noelle urged me to try it on so I did, and it fit like a glove. The leather jacket has been mine ever since. 

I just love how versatile the jacket is. I've styled it below for both date night and daytime shopping with friends. I love how Allison has styled hers as well- I mean GOLDDDDD?! She is now the second person I have seen with a gold leather jacket from F21. Sounds like I need to start camping out there!

  4. I am soooooooooooo glad that I came across your blog its beyond fantastic. The concept of two friends doing a blog must be so much fun and I absolutely love the series week of the crush girl. Great interviews with lovely bloggers.
    I just recently purchased a leather jacket from zara that I am absolutely obsessed with, its exactly how you described it, I have the feeling its THE ONE ;-)
    Your black leather jacket is so timeless and classic, love it. Also the gold leather jacket is pretty extraordinary and so different.

    You def have a new "honey Boo Boo child" from Germany muahahhaa ;-)
    You girls rock it, keep up the great work. I already spent so much time going through your posts.


  5. Well, the movie icon that comes to mind when I see a leather jacket is Selene from the movie “The Underworld.” Her iconic leather trench coat looks WICKED. But Sandy’s leather jacket looks awesome too. But what I like about leather jackets is the timeless style it provides. You can mix it up with other garments, and it will still stand out!
