WEEKEND FORECAST: Layer with Leather

Back in July, Teen Vogue repoted on the must-have autumn staple: the leather jacket. Personally, I love leather jackets because I believe they're perfect for almost any occasion. You can layer one over a T-shirt and jeans for a casually-chic outfit that's perfect for taking a walk or running errands or sport one over a tight dress for an eye-catching night on the town ensemble. Leather jackets will also keep you cozy and warm, which is perfect for the brisk autumn weather in the District. For their stylish versatility and comfortability, it's not surprising to see many of my fellow GW students rocking these leather layers.

This Fashionista opted to wear her leather jacket over a vintage T-shirt and leggings. With this outfit, she wears over-the-knee leather boots and carries a small beige wallet for her money and GWorld. Her minimal use of accessories brilliantly complements the casual-chic style that she's going for and her outfit clearly displays her effortless, fashion-forward attitude. This Fashionista's look is perfect for any daytime activity, from a trip to Trader Joe's to a study-session in Gelman and it is her leather jacket expertly ties this weekend look together. Another benefit is that this Fashionista can wear her leather jacket again over her nighttime, going-out outfit because, as mentioned, leather jackets transition well from day to night.

Hint: For your daytime look this weekend, try wearing your leather jacket with a pair of skinny jeggings, a sweater, and boots for an effortlessly stylish outfit. Then, for your night out, try wearing your leather jacket over a bandage skirt, a loose top and heeled booties for a show-stopping style that's perfect for all of your bar crawls and club hopping adventures. Regardless of what your daytime or nighttime plans are this weekend, wearing a leather jacket is the perfect way to keep you both warm and fashion-forward. Therefore, don't hesitate to experiment with this autumn staple, as the leather jacket is always sure to please!
