A leather jacket is essential for any wardrobe. So are black booties. And so is a denim shirt, or two. One of my favorite outfits is when I throw them all together! Black on black on black can be quite 'been there, done that', but you just can't go wrong when you add a little embellishments (like the chains on my boots). And leather doesn't always have to be black either; I've seen both red and white leather jackets that are to die for!
StyleCaster recommends pairing a leather jacket with a skirt or dress. Not only do I love that particular ensemble, but I'm also impatiently waiting for my next paycheck so I can invest in a gray turtleneck to put underneath! So, all of that being said: if you don't already have one of these coveted closet staples, it's time to invest.
PS: I encourage buying faux leather because animals are our friends. (:
Mine (purchased from Zara) is still in great condition after a little over a year and I wear it all the time!
