It’s no secret that the savvy leather jacket has become the most versatile staple in anyone’s wardrobe. A garment that is now considered “a classic” was once introduced as a trend, but because of its versatility and broad appeal, the leather jacket has worked its way into every wardrobe and always remains popular. Traditional, general simple styling means that a true classic can be worn year after year and never date.
A snug-fitted leather jacket is the perfect collaboration to that classic feminine flirty piece, a tunic, skinny jeans or zipped over a flimsy dress with black opaque tights for a tough/tender look. Fun, yet functional, the end result is a collection that will eventually be a staple in your wardrobe.
Just remember though, the best way to wear this garment is of course how you take this piece and make it your own. There is a jacket for everyone!
If you were a rock chick in the 70s or a biker chick in the early 80s, chances are you donned
a pair of quality leather trousers. Since that time their popularity has tapered off as other fashion trends have come and gone, however this years spring/summer 2011 fashion collections have reintroduced leather clothes stronger than ever!
This incredibly fierce and sexy trend, which is at the top of every A-lister’s wish list, is a staple which will add new dimension to your wardrobe whether you are a fan of utilitarian, minimalist or rock chick fashion.
Designed for any body type, high quality leathers are popping up repeatedly with designers managing to create a ‘less is more’ perspective of the biker look in the theme of minimalism.
