I Love Me Some Leather

I've always been a bit of a girly-girl (no, I'm not talking head-to-toe pink or Reese Witherspoon in Legally Blonde) just, you know, a little ruffle here and bit of lace there. Call it the "feminine-romantic" vogue.  That said, when I saw leather bomber jackets decorating the divas on the streets of Chi-town, my gag reflexes were in full effect. I mean, I love my man leather-clad, but I wasn't sure that I could pull off the hard-street-girl style without looking like a seen-better-days Aerosmith roadie…truly tragic.

 

Then I figured out the trick… if you've just got to wear a bomber jacket, keep it cropped and fitted and pair it with an ultra-feminine item. I'm talking pleated skirts, a lacey tank, a bold necklace or a party dress. Not only does the leather add a lil' sass and edge to the ensemble, but it makes the mix of styles and fabrics pop and sizzle. Best of all, this urban-chic and vintage-charm combo is sure to have the bad boys revving their motorcycles!

Tip: For a more sophisticated look select a darker shade jacket (i.e. black, grey, chocolate).

My favorite styles include Silence and Noise leather jackets and bombers (a mere $128.00) and the  ultra-cropped, sleek Nordstrom haute hippie bomber.

I couldn't agree more with your review! Great stuff! I just got an amazing camel leather bomber jacket (not my typical dress code) and I ADORE it! Check out my review: http://www.lunch.com/data/Leather_Bomber_Jac...bomber_jacket-7591.html

Winter 2010 Bomber Jackets
You’ll look forward to chilly Fall days when you have the hot jacket of the season in your coat closet. Bombers and shearling are in, and they’re available at every price range. The Bomber Shearling Jacket is a huge hit this Fall/Winter 2010 (as seen on Halle Berry and in the Philip Lim Show). Look stylish but tough in your Alice + Olivia cropped bomber with skinny jeans and boots. If you’re not ready to make the plunge for Juicy, trendy chain Love Culture’s  …

Alice + Olivia Breck Bomber
I'm not sure when leather bomber jackets went out of style...or really when they came back in... but My-oh-My are they back and as HOT as ever!    I don't suggest donning an all leather outfit (leather pants, leather boots, leather bomber) unless you are about to embark on a cross country motorcycle tour; but pairing a fashionable, fitted bomber with a frilly shirt and jeans...so cute and so in.    I recently found my way into the arms of an Alice + Olivia …
