The classic leather jacket and plain white tee is a look that James Dean and the like made iconic in the 1950s. Still today, there is something about a leather jacket that is just ultra cool and laidback.
This Fashionista rocks her leather in grey, putting a modern twist on the rebellious look from the turn of the century. Take a look at how this Fashionista put together her rocker chic ensemble. She keeps it simple by layering her leather jacket over a simple white tee. It’s important to note that your leather jacket can be layered over almost anything. Whether it’s over tees, blouses, dresses or jeans, a cropped leather jacket is an essential for any CollegeFashionista to add to her wardrobe. I found a great faux leather jacket at Forever21, but if you're looking for the real thing, I found a really awesome style by Young Fabulous and Broke at Saks. This Fashionista stays in tune with her rocker look by adding some heavy metal around her neck. I love her chunky jewelry! You can find a necklace with large beads, like the one this Fashionista is wearing, at many retailers this season. But you can also try layering thinner metal-chained necklaces to create your own heavy metal look.
It’s not only about the jacket and jewelry in this look. This Fashionista takes her rock star look all the way down to her toes. She matches her leather jacket perfectly with a trendy pair of lace-up boots. I found an awesome pair online for you to take a look at.
Did you know the leather lace-up ankle boot made its appearance in the 70s. Doc Martens brand made the lace-up boot their trademark style and it's still around today. The boot became particularly popular with the punk rock and new wave subcultures. This season we are seeing a modern version of these lace-up boots all over the runway.
So don’t think they are only associated with punk rockers and grungers, any Fashionista can try the style!
