what i'm wearing: dress Olive // leather biker jacket River Island // wool fedora hat Major Wear (similar here) // bag* George at ASDA // boots Topshop (old)
- it's easy to wear and you can find a style which suits your shape
- it's a classic piece which will stay in your wardrobe forever, making it easy to invest in one
- it can be accessorised in a huge number of ways: from shearling and fur collars, to tribal designs and neon colours
- it helps any outfit look a little 'badass', just remember Buffy rocking her red leather jacket!
I wanted to give a little shape to my midi shirt dress - although I love it loose, I think it also looks great with a jacket which will enhance the waist, even if only by a teeny tiny bit. Dresses with leather jackets are one of my favourite combinations - especially mini dresses with skater skirts and floral patters. There's something so lovely about the contrast of feminine patters and tough leathers!
This jacket has been mine for 6 years now - I love it and cannot trade it in, just yet. It also used to have a detachable faux shearling collar but as you can imagine after 6 years I simply have no idea where it could be!
