There’s something really challenging about finding the perfect leather jacket. I receive more personal emails from friends asking for help finding one than I do any other styling question and it’s not surprising. No closet should be without one. It’s an instant cool factor to just about any outfit. Wear it with your favorite dress and ankle boots and it’s the perfect juxtaposition. Throw it on top of your favorite jeans and a stripe tee and you’ll look like you have serious style cred. When shopping, be sure to get something that fits you well in the shoulders. It will keep it from looking bulky. Also, unless you are super tall, the most flattering cuts will most likely be those that hit right below your natural waist and above your hips. Whether you’re looking for something moto, collarless, quilted or asymmetrical have fun and choose one that feels uniquely you. This is a piece that can live in your closet for decades to come.
