One of my favorite things about this time of year is the ability to layer. Living in southern California does not always allow for layering items which, in my opinion, makes the freshest outfits. I love being able to add scarves, jackets and even gloves, if I can get away with it. My most favorite layer of them all… The Leather Jacket. It makes any outfit edgy and is perfect with all types of clothing; pants, dresses, and skirts… all of it! Everyone needs at least one classic black leather jacket in their closet. Or if you’re me, you have 10, all of which you will never wear more than twice a year in southern California!
Affordable Hint: I always find great, well priced leather jackets at Zara (here). Also, I have found super-duper cheap faux leather jackets at Forever 21 (here), which is a great option for trendy colors that may not be too fashion forward in a couple seasons (here).
