lusting for leather

Leather jackets are the ultimate Fall staple (at least in my fashion book). Definitely one of the pieces of clothing I am most looking forward to wearing again once it cools down a bit. Nothing looks better than the "perfect" soft squishy leather jacket-it goes with jeans, leggings, dresses, skirts...pretty much anything! Even an evening gown. Okay, you get the point-I LOVE leather jackets. I have a few but my two favorites are my All Saints Kadian jacket (from last Fall-#2 in my picks) in a taupey gray color and my black Joie jacket! I would love to add another leather jacket to my collection-maybe a slightly cropped style? Or a gorgeous camely brown? Or a Rick Owens (dream jacket)! Do you love leather jackets as much as I do?

  1. Oh I how adore this post! I could use a new leather jacket. Both of mine are (while really cute) circa 10 years old J.Crew and too slouchy.

  3. Love the Rick Owens and All Saints, but got a sale one from Anthro a few years ago that is a pretty good every day piece.

  4. I love leather jackets. I've worn mine to pieces. Time for a new one. The 5th photo is pretty much my everyday outfit come chillier days and nights. Love me some black tights too.

  15. I want a leather jacket so badly, but our weather in Dallas is jumps from too hot to too cold so quickly that I always decide not to buy one and get shoes instead. Sigh... now I'm shopping online again. :)

  19. I've been wanting a tobacco brown leather jacket forever! Just the goes-with-anything type that you can wear on a plane trip or to the Farmer's Market or out to dinner and it would still look fab.
