Up until a few months ago, I didn’t ever think I’d be a black (faux) leather jacket wearer. I just couldn’t imagine it looking anything but biker-chick on me. But now that I actually own one, I’m realizing how incredibly versatile it is — I think the fact that it’s fitted and has a cool asymmetrical zipper helps keeps it super modern and not biker at all. I love it so much that I’m finding myself wearing it at least once a week, despite the heat wave.
I was struggling to style this dress a little bit, trying to find ways to make it not look matronly or juvenile, and as soon as I put on the black leather jacket it all came together for a perfect combination of feminine and edgy. Super jacket to the rescue.
