This is the final instalment for the Magnificent Seven from one of my go to books Parisian Chic - A Style Guide by Ines de la Fressange. You can learn more about the first six -
1. The Blazer
2. The Trench
4. The Tank
Today we introduce The Leather Jacket. I do not own a leather jacket but I am deeply considering of purchasing one. How to transform your look with the leather jacket -
- wear with a dress
- add a little rock and roll to an elegant look
- add a string of pearls
- the older or more distressed the jacket will be better.
TIP is to walk all over the jacket or place under your mattress to soften the leather.
- Never ever wear your leather jacket with biker boots
- For a classic look wear a tan leather jacket with white jeans a silk top and heels.
The best look leather jacket is one that is close fitting to your body, with slim sleeves. Keep an eye out for quality leather jackets at markets as well.
Nikki over at Styling recently did a feature on the leather jacket which you can read here.
If you cannot afford or not really interested in real leather go the faux.
