When I think of “style” I think of classics; a great pair of jeans, that perfect trench coat, or the wear-with-everything black blazer. I never think of trends or things that are hot for just a season. I think of wardrobe items that are always in style, that always look good, and that make you feel chic the minute you put them on. One of those items is a classic leather jacket. It’s an investment, for sure, but it is so worth it! If you pick a quality leather jacket, it should last you several years or more. And with all the options we have nowadays, you don’t need to spend a fortune. You can get a high quality leather jacket, in a classic style that will last, for a reasonable price.
|LOVE this mustard coat – and that adorable scarf too!|
|This is just iconic. Olivia Palermo looking as stylish as always with one of the prettiest green statement coats I’ve ever seen!|
|I adore this plaid one!|
|The elegance of an all-white coat.|
|Love the double-breasted style of this one.|
|This coat I’ve shown before in my post about houndstooth. Sorry, I couldn’t not show it again – it’s amazing!|
|Love the unusual diamond pattern on this one! The definition of a statement coat!|
|Love this unusual color.|
|Another great pattern!|
|Another great mustard coat. This makes me want to find a yellow coat so badly!|
|Well, you know how I feel about a leopard coat. Staple and a statement coat, all in one package!!|
Each Spring I like to do a post on the biggest trends for the season. There is something so fun about getting a few new items to add some pep to your wardrobe! I try to focus on trends that I think will stay around longer, or will have more staying power, as I don’t want to spend money on things that are only here for one season. And to that point, I also don’t think you need to spend a lot on these trends. This is the time to shop the less expensive stores and not pay an arm and a leg. You’ll have a few new things that make you feel more up-to-date and that freshen up your closet, but you haven’t spent so much that you need to feel guilty if they don’t last longer than a season or two. For basics and classic items that are true investment pieces, I do think it’s worth spending more if you can afford it. (I wrote a post here on what to spend more on if you are interested).
