From Runway To Real Life


From New York to Paris, one runway trend we spotted for the 2013 fall fashion season was the leather jacket: cropped motorcycle styles, hybrids with contrasting fabric panels and oversized jackets with big buckles. Any style of this item can add an edgy contrast to an otherwise simple outfit. Instead of pairing a traditional blazer with a skirt, wear a leather jacket. Or throw a thin leather jacket over a shift dress before going out to dinner. No matter the occasion, a leather jacket will take you there in style.
