Lately I’ve been spending a lot of time in bed next to my poor recovering Fred Baby, who made his first trip to the ER in the 12 years since I’ve known him — and hopefully the last.Thankfully he’s on the mend, but all of that laying around lead to a lot of staring into my closet. Which brings up the question: How am I going to make all of my sweet summer dresses fall-appropriate?
I believe I’ve found the answer.
The little leather jacket. The leather says downtown and cool, while the feminine, fitted silhouette keeps it from feeling Tori Scott. And somehow leather jackets, like Kelly Wearstler’s (also here), add just the right amount of layered moodiness and artsy edge to even the most Upper East Side of ensembles, don’t you think?
Here are a few chic leather jackets I have my eye on (under $200!):
1. Bebe Cropped Leather Jacket – love this cropped cutie in black and red & the price is insanely good for real leather ($139)
2. Free People Collarless Moto Jacket – love the cool blue hue & the price won’t break the bank ($198)
