Leather jackets are not just a trend for AW16, they are a total classic that will get better with age and if you opt for a simple style such as a bomber or biker, it will never go out of fashion. I have a few leather jackets and they are worn daily, walking my dog, to meetings, out for dinner, even dates...especially dates. Putting on a leather jacket does make you feel immediately cooler than you really are and I like that feeling, who doesn't?
You might have noticed that my Instagram ascetics have got quite dark lately, as in a dark masculine tinge to most of the photos, I love it and I feel like I've finally found my personality and point of difference. Saying that, it does limit the type of pictures I can post however leather jackets fit in perfectly - so you may find me wearing more in future posts and certainly no more white walls!
I'm wearing a leather jacket from Diesel then skinny black jeans plus a white tee from ASOS. I've layered a shirt from Realm & Empire and left undone and completed the look with a pair of black brogue shoes from Hawkins & Shepherd.
