A Leather Jacket

From left to right: Maje, Saray, Arma, Maje
There is no better way to make a nod to the biggest trend of the season - leather, than by opting for a breath-taking leather jacket. Leather jackets are all-timers and never will be in or out of trend. Yet this season they are more than a must. Go for a rock chic as seen at Balenciaga or choose one with an oriental touch like at Proenza Schouler. Wear your jacket with a pretty flower dress to add a tough effect to the look or throw it over a cashmere sweater for a haute casual silhouette. 
Personally I prefer not bulky versions with intriguing elements like a mixture of fabrics or an interesting pocket design. Unexpected hues (say beige or lavender) add a wow factor as well.  
Shop for wallet-friendly yet chic jackets at Zara, Asos and TopShop

Лучший способ отдать дань самому большому тренду сезона - коже - приобрести кожаную куртку, от вида которой перехватывает дыхание и начинает засасывать под ложечкой. Кожаные куртки безвременны, они никогда не будут в тренде или вне него. Однако в этом сезоне они более чем актуальны. Будь то рок-н-ролл шик аля Balenciaga или куртка с восточными мотивами, как из коллекции осень-зима 12 Proenza Schouler, кожаная куртка -  идеальный спутник жизни. 
Я лично предпочитаю приталенные силуэты с интригующими деталями: сочетание разных фактур и тканей или интересный дизайн, скажем карманов. Неожиданные цвета также добавляют "wow" фактор. 
Недорогие, но интересные можели можно найти на сайтах ZaraAsos and TopShop

  18. Hiya dear, thanks for your comment, you're so lucky to have Reiss in your country, wish we had it here. This is so uncanny - in a very good way! I just did a post about leather jackets, haha. Oh wow, these are such chic pieces, I love them all, the fits and style look incredible, I have yet to invest in my own biker coat.

  19. i agree with leather jackets being all-timers. totally! to me they are irreplaceable clothing items in my wardrobe. they seem to go with almost everything and always give that sort of boy-ish touch to my outfit which i love. my leather jacket definitely gets the most use in my wardrobe! your black maje jacket is just to die for! i really like that one!

  21. Тоже очень люблю кожаные куртки, косухи в особенности (ну, в моем случае, эо дань моему панковому прошлому). Очень понравилась черная на левом фото.
    И вообще, шикарный блог! Очень рада, что попала сюда благодаря твоему комменту в моем (спасибо, кстати). Зафолловила на БЛ)
