The Skinny on Leather Jackets and Why you should own One

Unless you’ve been living in a cave under a rock in south most part of Australia, you have no reason not to know that Leather is all the rage and that its here to stay. Hell even Vegans want in on this trend (Although really you should’nt call yourself a vegan if you’re going to want to wear anything remotely animal related or indicative thereof … Just saying)

I digress, back to the topic at hand. The focus on this blog entry is on the classic leather jacket. Leather jackets as we know are no longer reserved for shady bikers or buzz cut lesbians or goth folk..(Can u even use the folk when reffering to goths?). Leather is now for every self respecting fashionista

The trick however is getting yourself a well structured leather jacket, what I mean by that is, the jacket must look contoured and well tailored when you wear it. Not like a leather trash bag… End up looking like a shady club bouncer.

A leather jacket is the quickest way to add “sophisticated edge” to any look. Its a great contrast and add of texture. If you pair it with very feminine items such as a floral dress, delicate fabrics and accessories like pearls, it actually works well to high light those items very beautifully might I add. If you don’t believe me, look at the pics below.
