1 Jacket, 3 Ways

27 April 2016, by Forrest Chase

Whether real or faux, leather is the ultimate transition fabric and we aren’t the only ones thinking this. From Gigi to Jourdan, the world’s top supermodels know how to sport a leather jacket autumn through spring. Here are our top 3 ways to incorporate your jacket into your wardrobe rotation.

1. Toughen up

Gigi’s personal street-style is on par with the fashion she showcases on the runway. Her take on the leather jacket means business; studs, spikes and a serious stance that screams look-but-don’t-touch.

3. Get girly

Just like Jourdan Dunn, you can toughen up a sweet floral dress with the addition of a leather jacket. It’s also a great way to bring your summer wardrobe into the colder months – layer your jacket over your favourite playsuits, miniskirts and maxi-dresses.
