As I was a teenager I was reading in one of the fashion magazines (I do not actually remember witch one, but for sure Elle or Vogue) about the 20 key pieces every woman should have in her wardrobe. There where things like a little black dress, white blouse, perfect fitting jeans etc etc. I kept this article for many years as one of the chapters from the fashion bible. And for myself I decided to invest in some of those basics as if you found a perfect one then it doesn’t really matters if it’s from the latest collection or already 2 years old.
And here I would like to introduce to you one of them – leather jacket! Leather jacket is always in fashion, there are no seasons and no fashionistas that you will see without this key piece.
I was looking for years for the right one. I wanted to have a design that will be not too rocky, but still gives an outfit a trendy touch and the one that feels luxurious and gives a nice portion of the extravagancy to the whole look and I found it- my beloved Tory Burch black short one. Why I choose this one? Cause you can do so much with this style, you can wear it with a skirt, it goes with any jeans you have or just put it on with an evening dress to make the look more cool. Even with a silky summer dress it’s still looks fashionable and just stunning.
How you know that’s the right one for you? If you just take it from your wardrobe without even getting a thought – will this match? – then you found it, it’s your key piece, your non plus ultra that gives this something very special and unique to your own style.
Here are some outfit inspirations with 2 different ones, so you can see how easy it is to make the leather jacket your one and only fashion basic.
