Of all my autumn must haves, a leather jacket tops the list. Admittedly, there's a sadly brief period in St. Louis where a leather jacket is actually a practical purchase - it seems like it's hot hot hot hot hot and then BAM freezing cold after a measly two weeks of fall most years. But this year! This year in St Louis we've begun this gradual cool down in the mornings and evenings that is just the most perfect temperature for a slim fitting leather jacket as a topper, so I'm taking full advantage
I linked all my best finds for you in the widget, but wanted to point out a few I have and love...
The bottom right "Blank NYC" jacket I bought during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and it's possibly the best purchase I made. Make sure to size down - I got an extra small, it runs big.
Forever 21 does surprisingly fantastic faux options, I've bought one practically every year, and this year bought their burgundy quilted version for the second time I liked it so much. It always garnered tons of compliments, and people were shocked it wasn't real. Last year's was worn out, and a little too big, but that's no big deal since they only run you about $20 and are easily replaced.
That Tory Burch blush in the center is the jacket of my dreams, although sadly out of my budget. Perhaps in yours though?
And finally the 70s glam cognac River Island jacket with the fur collar is also calling my name, and I picture it going perfectly with the wide legged flares of fall.
Which one is your favorite?
