The Find: A Leather Jacket for All Seasons

Mar 16, 2021

When I leave for work in the morning, it’s chilly.  Not cold enough for a winter coat, but chilly.

Your third layer — the topper you wear over your dress or separates — is very important in this early spring weather.  The outfit under the layer must be able to stand alone (in case you get hot), but also made better by the addition of the jacket.

Denim jackets are the most common.  (This Madewell one and <$50 Daily Ritual one are the best.)  But if you want a different look, a leather or vegan leather jacket is best.  Here are some good ones.

    I have this Levi’s leather moto from last year and it goes with absolutely everything. Jeans, pencil skirts, pleated chiffon skirts, trousers, lace cocktail dresses … top five wardrobe investments, absolutely. It’s sold out, but linking as a style suggestion as it’s 10/10 perfect.

    I can’t pull off the wide-lapel biker jackets (blazers even) due to broad shoulders, but I have a super soft Rag & Bone bomber style leather jacket with knit cuffs and collar that is absolutely fabulous as a cool windbreaker. Another tip on leather jackets, if you know what you’re looking for shop secondhand. They just last forever so you have a great opportunity to get an awesome deal. I got the R&B and a Joie leather jacket on ThredUp and they are way out of my price range if I had gotten them new.

    Finding a leather jacket where the proportions are just right is very challenging. I have an All Saints jacket that fits like a dream, and the quilted shoulders and sleeves are a great detail. An investment piece, but I snagged it half price on Poshmark.

The Crowdstrike/Microsoft Meltdown forced me to take a few days off this weekend. No laptop. No billable hours.
