There’s nothing like leather jacket weather in New York. October is here and the temps have cooled down making it the best time to break out your little moto jacket. It’s the perfect piece to edge up an outfit and give the ultimate ‘cool girl’ vibe.
I had quite the debate when choosing a leather jacket. It’s a big decision in your wardrobe! You want to invest in one that gives you a buttery feel and instantly boosts your confidence when you put it on. I was back and forth between two options — it was serious. Ask my friends, family, coworkers, loved ones…strangers…you name it, they were involved. I finally let my heart decide — Zara, you won me over.
It’s kind of amazing — every time I would see a girl on the street in NYC in a great leather jacket and asked where she got it thinking it was from an outrageous unattainable brand…she’d say, “Oh it’s from Zara!” — and then I knew, Zara, you were the one.
I love the shape of this one because it’s not too bulky and still feels feminine. I can still layer a sweater underneath but also easily wear over a tank or tee.
I adore gold. This tank was a fun find at Forever 21. Champagne gold is so flattering on a variety of skin tones. It gives such a pretty sheen. I styled it with my go-to “Mom” jeans from American Eagle Outfitters. I’m all about a high-waisted denim.
Now for accessories, I added nude pumps from Mango and a vintage sequin bag because you can never have enough sparkle.
To complete my look, I paired these minimal gold earrings I found from a designer on Etsy, Kalliste,– you must check out her shop!
Now recreate this look and please blast, “Cool Girl” by Tove Lo while doing it because that’s what I’m jamming to right now. 🙂
