Spring's Hottest Must Have: Leather Jacketsby ModernMom Staff
What to do when it's too warm for winter gear but too cold to go sans jacket? Wear Spring's hottest must-have item, the cropped leather jacket. It's a 'wear with everything and anything and everywhere' item and it will pretty much make any outfit look amazing. Here are some excellent options:
With Dark Jeans
Look how great this looks for a night out on the town -- match with dark jeans and instantly update the look. Wear with stilettos at night and sneakers in the day. Click on the picture for the full effect.
A Preppier Look
A totally fashion forward way to wear it is by pairing your leather jacket with something pretty like this blouse. If you're wearing a more conservative outfit, leather adds an element of sexiness.
If you don't want to do the typical black leather jacket, go more classic with a beautiful cream or white. It's a gorgeous addition to a flirty summer dress or even a dressier look, but you can also dress it down and wear it more casual with jeans or shorts.
Wear It Bright!
Would you dare to wear a bright pink, or red? If you are be sure to tone down your other colors and go easy on the accessories and jewelry -- make the jacket your stand-out piece. In terms of shoes, stick with neutral colors like black and unless you really want to go funky, wear simple flats to tone down the look.
This look is great for the office, or to dress up something very casual. A pair of high-waisted jeans with a cinched, cropped leather jacket will melt inches and create a slimming effect. You can wear this with pretty much anything, from skirts, to trousers to jeans.
