Summer is practically over and while that's pretty heartbreaking, I've got some good news: now is the perfect time to stock up on some fall leather jackets, whether you're looking for something sweet and chic a la Olivia Palermo or edgy and moto-esuqe like Ruby Rose.
A leather jacket is such a great piece that will almost always dress up any outfit. I just love how the texture alone makes leather jackets stand out boldly and the rigid structure adds so much edge and personality to any outfit. Oh, and it's always a plus in my book when I can carry around a jacket without noticing the added weight in my backpack, around my waist, or on my shoulders. Leather jackets are especially great during the transitional months between summer and fall where the weather is pretty much unpredictable. A lightweight leather jacket is always my best friend.
Leather is always a huge trend, come fall, and while you might be tempted to spend your money on a moto vest or leather pants, I think, instead, you should invest in a nice leather jacket. It's timeless and I guarantee, it will never go out of style. Plus, styling a leather jacket so easy because the piece speaks boldly for itself. I mean just look at Ruby Rose's all-black outfit:
