The Girl with the Leather Jacket..

Every time I'm in SoHo I'm inspired by how a girl is wearing her leather jacket - especially when its worn in an unexpected way. With the right cut and fit a leather jacket can be classically cool, edgy, contemporary or even super chic. Its all about the styling..

My favorite way to wear leather is with a dress- especially a print or a sheath dress. It's the unexpected combinations like a leather jacket with pearls (first photo) or a leather jacket with a pencil skirt that really create a great look with a touch of edge. 
Play with bright/colorful accesoriies especially if your jacket is black or grey. As for hair; soft waves are the perfect combination of feminine and effortless and add to the total cool factor. 
And if for some reason you don't want to look too edgy you can create a more contemporary /sophisticated look by pairing leather with neutrals.

Have a lovely day everyone!
