Today, I’m talking about *THE* leather jacket…I found it, I love it, I’m obsessed with it.
I spotted this jacket at Zara last summer and tried it on without even checking the price tag, something I never do, and I probably shouldn’t have. It was the perfect fit, perfect style…perfect everything! When I flipped over the tag and saw that this bad boy was $270 CAD, I had to walk away from it. I couldn’t justify spending that much on a jacket and we’ll discuss my ‘thing’ with expensive clothing items in a later post. I looked everywhere for a similar leather jacket and I found nothing comparable. Long story short, I went back to Zara a few months later and this EXACT jacket was on sale for $80. Best believe I SNATCHED IT. 🙂
The thickness of the leather, the fit and style is EXACTLY what I love.
I feel so…urban chic when I wear this.
During the Spring and Fall, this is my GO-TO morning, afternoon and evening jacket.
It’s fitted enough to wear a tee or sleeveless top underneath without it losing its shape AND it’s loose enough to style with a sweater or cardigan on chillier days.
I think investing in an affordable leather jacket is a MUST and a STAPLE item to keep in your wardrobe, it’s great for any occasion!
Do you have a favourite leather jacket? I’d love to see!
Stay tuned for my next post!
