What I Wore: Trans-Seasonal Black and White

11 September 2015


Boohoo Jacket | Country Road Tee | Isabel Marant Skirt | Tony Bianco Heels | Rebecca Minkoff Bag

When the weather is neither a scorching hot Summer day or a blistering cold Winter day, I’ve found that a leather jacket is pretty much the perfect layering solution for those in-between kind of days.

It’s just warm enough for the frosty mornings and not too warm for a bit of afternoon sunshine.

I like to pop it over a summery dress, a plain tank dress or even just over a tee and jeans. Sometimes I also wear a light knitted cardigan under the jacket too. I’m a wuss when it’s cold!

 

My jacket is non-genuine leather (from Boohoo) but it’s still buttery soft and has a great structure and shape.

I’m pretty fickle with leather jackets; my preference for styles change every season, so I’m unable to decide on ONE and commit to it as an investment. Oh and I don’t have $600 handy!

Even the well-priced, genuine leather jackets from various high street stores ($150 – $250) don’t seem to look all that great. The ones I’ve seen, look a bit plasticky, a bit wrinkled and they don’t even look like genuine leather!

So I much prefer to hunt down vegan leathers or leather-look styles, that actually look amazing.

This one has been pretty awesome. It has lasted me all winter and it’s still on high rotation!

What about you? Where did you buy your favourite leather or faux leather jacket from?

Have a wonderful weekend!
