the BASICS | Leather biker jacket

1

Leather jacket is one of my favorite pieces of clothing that I own. It took me awhile to invest into a really good one but once I did I never turned back. I remember owning a faux leather jacket from Forever 21 four/five years ago and I remember I kept wearing it again and again even after I’ve completely fallen out of love with it and after my preferences in clothing has changed. But I kept wearing it with jeans, dresses, heels, sneakers, etc. It just looked good with everything.

Leather bicker jacket is a classic, something you might pass to your daughter with your grandmother’s pearls so it only makes sense to buy one. If you have an opportunity to buy a genuine leather jackets – that’s amazing, if not – there are always more than two options. Keep reading and you will find leather jackets and faux leather jackets at all price ranges. I have three for you to be exact.

ON A BUDGET


If you really want to get a nice jacket but don’t want to spend $100 on it – there are options.  First, you can raid you mom’s closet and might get lucky to find an oldie but goodie from the 80s. Oversized leather jackets are very much in fashion at the moment. Second, you can buy a faux leather jacket (that is much cheaper than leather jacket) without breaking a bank. It might not serve you as long a genuine leather jacket but it will work for the time being.

AFFORDABLE


There are a lot of options on the market and this one is for someone who wants to invest into a genuine leather jacket but not more than $200. My favorite ones are from ASOS and Urban Outfitters. Those two web stores have some really good picks. Try wearing it with pants (like mine) and sneakers, plus add a tote for practical and comfortable outfit for running errands in style.

INVESTMENT


Of course there are $5,000 leather jackets (like my favorite one from SAINT LAURENT, please, please be mine one day) but we got to be realistic here. The difference between these leather jackets and the affordable ones is the quality of leather and extra attention to the details. The best way to dress such an expensive jacket up is to wear it with long flowy dress, high heels and a clutch.
