There’s a small window in New York City weather –when it’s not too hot, like last month. And still not too cold– as it soon shall be. It’s right now–the A/C is off, the heat isn’t yet on, and the leather jacket makes perfect sense.
My black moto jacket–the one I found at the old flea market on sixth avenue–has been very good to me through the years. It’s worked well with most everything in my closet — adding a rough edge to my more feminine pieces or slipping on easily with my jeans and tee. But it’s inevitable that as the autumn breeze kicks in, I’m drawn to every new leather that crosses my path. If I do decide to make an update, this is how I’d do it:
5 Leather Jackets I’d Wear Today
I’m a huge fan of grey (will go perfectly with my new clogs) and this buttery soft looking jacket reeks laid back style which makes it super enticing to throw on with everything…every day.
This is way beyond my price point. But it’s always good to aim high for your inspo. When I navigate the more affordable brands, this beauty will be in mind to remind me how my perfect leather jacket looks. Note: there’s a hood!
Though leather does break-in quite well, I don’t want to wait years for that to happen which is why I always gravitate towards a worn-in or distressed look. I’m also kind of digging this bomber style which is so happening this season.
Okay, still out of my price point. But this furry collar is so seventies rockstar that I automatically adore.
I actually tried this one on last year. It felt really nice, and I liked how it draped. Just not sure I need another black moto jacket.
