Leather Jacket Love

From a supple blazer at Balmain to a stud-embellished bomber at Moschino Cheap & Chic, nearly every designer had a take on the traditional moto jacket for Fall 2010. Get lovely in leather, darlings!

Tell CC, darlings ~ do you have a leather jacket? Who is your go-to designer for this wardrobe staple?

Love the Andy & Debb leather jacket! Had never heard of that label, so must investigate ;) This week I bought a Burberry Prorsum black leather trenchcoat...I cannot wait for the weather to cool down so I can wear it! :)


I cannot get enough of leather jackets!


Such a simple necessity in life.

I actually found a Roxy faux-leather jacket that I just love, and drag in and out of the car with me. It light weight, keeps me covered in rain and wind, and doesn't seem so precious.

Random, I know.
Just so happy that the surf lines are hiring better designers.

Oh I love leather jackets! Our current Moscow weather is exactly the kind when you'd want to wear one, so I'm making the most of it while it lasts :) Also saw a girl wearing a dark green leather jacket today, looked a lot like this green-ish one above, and I loved it! It looked really chic.

YES leather rocks!! Such a classic, sexy look, I can't believe I never wore it until the last year or so. Coloured leather is very chic this year as well, particularly a light tan leather skirt is such a classy way to incorporate leather.

So glad you did this post, I've got leather jackets on the brain right now--especially in black!

And you've just made me ask myself why I've been putting off getting a leather jacket for so long. Love that they add a bit of edge to any outfit.
