Biker Chic

There are many ways to add leather to your wardrobe without looking like you are headed to a Harley Davidson rally.  My personal favorites are the leather motorcycle and bomber/aviator jackets that toughen up a pair of skinny jeans.  Depending on where you shop, leather (and pleather) jackets can range from $100 to $2,000.  I have scoured the stores to find the perfect styles.  To pull off the trend, I recommend wearing a leather jacket with dark denim and a long tee or sweater that falls slightly below the bottom of the jacket.  If you decide to go with pleather, try to find one that looks like real leather (soft, flexible and not too shiny).

Levi's Capital E "Vintage" Nappa Leather Bomber Jacket - $298

Frenchi Crop Leather Bomber - $168

Victoria's Secret Leather Aviator Jacket - $159

Michael Kors Motorcycle Jacket - $399

Kenna-T Washed Leather Jacket - $452

Fossil Maribelle Bomber - $198

For those budget fashionistas, try checking out your local T.J.Maxx or Marshalls.  I found this Bagatelle jacket at T.J.Maxx for $39.99 (and it is a brand sold at Neiman Marcus)!
