A wise person once said, “I thought my life would suddenly improve if I got a leather jacket, and I was literally 100% totally right.” Okay, it was a meme, but it still holds true. A leather jacket is the perfect finishing touch to any outfit, the quintessential piece to add a bit of badassery and sophisticated cool to any look, whether you’re rocking lacy layers, flowy cloaks and silver jewels, or skinny jeans, flannels, and band tees. The heat of summer forced us to put away some favorite pieces in our wardrobe, but autumn is here, it’s getting cooler, and leather weather has returned. Why not celebrate with a brand new jacket?
