Jacked in my Leather Jacket
You guys I am so excited because we officially got our first little taste of fall this weekend. It's like I could smell it in the air, the wind is crisp, the trees are starting to shed, and there's this unspoken beauty that Chicago is beginning to have, getting ready for fall. I have to admit fall is one of my favorite seasons and I know I talked about getting fit for fall before. However, this spread is dedicated to jackets! I know, they can sometimes be a bummer, but jackets can be the perfect accessory for any fall time look.
The one that I am sporting personally is one of my favorites. There is nothing sexier than wearing a classic leather jacket. I have to admit it reminds me of that scene in Greece when Sandy sheds her sweet girl persona and rocks the leather pants, off the shoulder black shirt, and of course the leather jacket. There's so many styles that you can implement while wearing this timeless piece but I started off with a nice polka dot blouse and mustard colored pants from forever 21.
I wanted to do an edgier look but still keeping the classic pops of color in my style like I normally do. Mustard colors always seem so much brighter in the fall air among the golds, reds, and oranges.
Another great part about jackets is that you can do your hair is so many different cool up-dos that you normally wouldn't do in the summer. I had a bit of fun making a hair crown around my head.
The leather jacket can be worn for a fun night out with the girls or can be worn in the day as a statement piece, either way, it's literally perfect for fall!
The jean jacket is another one of my favorites and it goes so well with fall. Not only is it comfortable, classy, and keeps you warm, but there's something oddly romantic about it. Everyone who knows me knows that I am a hopeless romantic. There's something about those old romance comedies, where the guy hands the girl his leather or jean jacket, it really tugs at my heart strings. However, over the years fashion has allowed women to sport their own jean jacket and it looks so cute on every body type and height. My favorite way to wear it is with a body con dress because it slims the waist and body perfectly with this style. Ladies, it is time to bust out the boots and I am so excited because nothing goes better with a jean jacket then boots. Don't be afraid to experiment with colors, the jacket can go well with pretty much everything, so take that time to play around and see what you feel comfortable in.
Long Sleeve Drawstring Jacket
I love these drawstring jackets, not only do they keep you warm, especially when it's getting closer to the winter months, but there's something so cute about them. I love how versatile they can be and they come in so many different colors as well. I personally like the lighter color ones because they can complement the darker colors that you wear underneath. Pairing this jacket with a nice pair of leggings, or pants, is perfect for a casual day out running errands, getting lunch, or meeting up for some much needed girl time.
Jackets can be so much fun, I remember being in high-school hating wearing jackets because I thought they covered my outfit. Now, as I've gotten older I realize they can be a real statement piece if you know how to plan properly. This fall don't let the cold weather get you down. I hope these suggestions will help you prepare for this lovely fall season. Until next time loves!
