WARDROBE STAPLES - THE LEATHER JACKET

6:00 am




In my opinion a good wardrobe is made up of two things trends and staples/basics. The trends are always fun but in all honestly no wardrobe is complete without the staples.  Staples are our fall backs; old faithfuls that we reach for time and time again.  They help ground an outfit so that it's not a crazy mish mash of trendy pieces and take you from a clown to a fashionista overnight.





For me one of my favorite staples that I always need is a leather jacket!  It's all the components of a perfect outfit all rolled up into one piece.  A leather jacket itself is generally considered a more casual piece, but leather in itself is high end.  It is at once both laid back and elevated; edgy yet sophisticated. It is the perfect addition to elevate a casual outfit and also to contrast a dressy look with a casual piece.  






A few years ago my previous go to leather jacket that had been with me for a while reached it's life expectancy  (it was faux but I LOVED it!) and since then I have been on the hunt for a replacement.  Until a few weeks ago when the stars aligned and I finally found this Rudsak leather jacket during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale and I couldn't love it more!





All jokes aside though, I really do feel that a leather jacket is a must have in any wardrobe!  If you have one, you know what I mean, and if you don't and want one my only suggestion is to take your time finding the right one for you.  I consider my leather jacket(s) investment pieces.  If you choose wisely and care for them they will last you a lifetime!

Thanks so much for reading!
