Leather jackets are one of those staple pieces I think every Fashionista/o should own in his or her closet. The versatility of the jacket makes for a perfect causal class look or dressy evening look. The piece can be worn and styled in so many different ways to satisfy each individual’s personal taste. This Fashionista’s black bomber jacket was styled in a more edgy and casual look for class.

JV: I am obsessed with shoes. There are so many different styles, and I love the variety that shoes can offer. I really have an ever-evolving style and by switching up my shoes, my style changes instantly. My favorite shoe brands are Steve Madden, Free People, Chinese Laundry, and my Minnetonka boots.
How To: For Jordan’s casual, edgy look, I suggest a bomber jacket with the sweatshirt material like this Michael Kors one. A great thing about leather jackets is you can go faux without looking cheap and plastic like. Shopstyle is a fabulous website to browse on because it has a wide range of prices, brands, and styles. So for your first step decide what color you prefer: black, tan, brown, gray, metallic, etc. Then decide on the style: motorcycle, bomber, studded, hooded, etc. Really the options for a great faux or real leather jacket are endless, and you can’t go wrong with whatever option you decide!
