Get the Look for Less: Biker Chic

Leather is all the craze this season. If there is one leather piece to add to your wardrobe for the season, it should be a motorcycle style leather jacket. It's a staple piece that will remain timeless. These investment pieces are worth the splurge, but if you don't have it in your budget right now it's okay stores, like Zara, Topshop, and even Nastygal (here) have affordable options. No these might not be top grade leather (or leather at all), but these are great alternative versions for the gal on a budget.

Biker Chic

These bad boys can toughing up a floral print dress (goes great with the slip dress trend that is happening right now!) or for a lazy weekend look a simple tee, jeans, and boots. I love pairing leather up with prints, especially animal prints. On those fall mornings where I can't manage to get out from underneath my warm blankets and stay in way to late, I go for my favorite basics: animal print tunic, leggings, booties, layered necklaces and lastly my leather jacket. The trick to always looking put together even last minute is to use your accessories. Accessories can really polish off a look.

This Zara jacket was a early bday present from my parents. I was in search of a leather jacket that wasn't overly expensive and one that I can mix in between my Michael Kors leather jacket. This Zara one has more of a biker rough edge that I have been looking for. This jacket really fills the void in my wardrobe...so sorry in advance that you'll probably see this jacket a number of times this season.

Will you be rocking the leather jacket this season?

  4. Your hair looks so pretty up like this, I love the way the braid is lighter. Love this outfit, I wouldn't want to be without my leather jackets, they are perfect for throwing on over almost anything. I think Topshop & Zara are always good for less expensive options, the quality is really very good for the prices! Also, love that 2nd shot of you - the lighting, the pose, it's beautiful! :)
