If there is one enduring piece in my wardrobe it’s my leather jacket.
I know I’ve mentioned it before.
Right about now, I long to dump the heaviness of overcoats and the bulkiness of layers… I look forward to wearing a lighter weight.
Leather jackets are brilliant for the in-between and totally wearable for women of all ages…
It’s just a question of detail…
My rule is this...
The older we get, the less decorative detail and embellishment we want to wear.
Younger women look fabulous adorned… even ‘overly’ adorned…. not for me, less is decidedly more.
I believe we want to take an elegant approach… to be up to date with fashion but not at war with it.
We want to manipulate the trends to suit our look… not be bent out of shape by the desire to fit in.
If you haven’t already… overhaul your wardrobe with a leather jacket… simple, practical and stylish.
The one piece that I wear constantly… the right leather jacket doesn’t date, it can be dressed up or down and most importantly a leather jacket makes you feel chic.
Who doesn’t want that? xv
