The leather jacket.
As ubiquitous as the ballet flat or the LBD. Purchase a good one and it's an investment for life. Dress up, dress down - there are no rules - except it will always be on trend.
If you're currently looking to add this piece to your wardrobe this spring, here are some of my favorites to give you inspiration:
Black Goatskin Leather Jacket with Chocolate Collar in Beaver.
PETA lovers beware, but this one is a thing of beauty and that hit of fur gives it just enough glam.
Jade Jacket Eames Garden.
Digital printing is rising in popularity and we're seeing more and more of this on leather. Luxe hardware finishings on nappa leather and matching printed silk crepe lining.
Nero Shiny Lambskin Jacket
Shiny lambskin leather, belted waist and zip detailing with hand-engraved accents. Multi-pockets and fold-down label.
Classic Motorcycle Jacket in Grey Lambskin Leather
Although I have numerous black leather jackets in my wardrobe, I couldn't help but gravitate towards this grey number. Stunning. 3 zip pockets, snap closure flap pocket, waistband with belt loops and zip cuffs. Silk lining.
Rolin Leather Jacket
I saved the best for last: this is my favorite jacket out of the five. Hands down. It's buttery soft nappa leather but I'm in love with the quilted shoulders and asymmetrical front panel - great way to add femininity and texture. Exposed zip fastenings and buckled strap.
