THE LEATHER EFFECT

I think a leather jacket is an absolute essential piece that all fashionistas should have. To me the right leather jacket has the ability to work with a range of different styles and should give the most chic touch look to your outfit.

Now that we have been given the choice of real or faux leather, it gives us more options when looking for that right jacket. Over the years we have have seen lots more colour, detailing and styles being introduced from different retailers and clothing companies which has made the leather jacket market fiercely competitive. I think it must have taken me around two months to actually find mine (probably because I'm so particular about everything), it wasn't until I stumbled across it whilst shopping at H&M in London. My favourite thing about it is the lapels and press stud design, when searching for the right jacket I envisioned a more masculine version of the jacket Gigi Hadid wore on the cover of British Vogue's January issue this year. I love where the zips are positioned and how authentic the jacket actually looks. In the picture above I styled my jacket with a checked shirt and slim suit trousers which I wore to a dinner date with friends. One of my favourite looks with the jacket was with a camouflage top and white jeans which went together superbly. The leather jacket is a definitive piece in anyone's wardrobe and can really refine someone's appearance.
