This is it... we have reached the conclusion of my outerwear edit! I think I've saved the very best for last, however, because the leather jacket is an essential part of anyone's wardrobe. I own two other faux-leather jackets which I wear fairly frequently, but neither can hold a candle to this one. I've been on the hunt for a good, real leather jacket for years now, and I stumbled upon one whilst shopping in the residual Black Friday sales at a nearby outlet. Whenever I visit the Michael Kors outlet store, good things never happen, and I always walk away with a full bag and an empty wallet... But there was no regret with this purchase, because I managed to get a five-hundred dollar jacket for under two-hundred! Talk about a bargain. What I love about this particular style is that it fits me like a glove, it's not too long or short in length, and the hardware detailing is in silver, which is my preferred color over gold. If you're like me and didn't want to spend a lot on a leather jacket, I totally understand - being on a budget is not easy. However, I completely suggest saving up and investing in one, because it will last you for years to come. Nothing looks as cool and genuine as aged leather! I can't wait to see how mine looks in the future, it's definitely something to look forward to!

I kept my styling simple, as I wanted the focus to remain on the jacket. Underneath, I have on a simple turtleneck tucked into some grey distressed mom jeans, and my booties and hat you've both seen before in previous posts. I just wore one ring for this post, but it's one of my favorites - it's a band with three skulls that I picked up for five pounds at the Portobello Market in London last summer. The bag just seemed to work with the whole ensemble, as it's understated and gives a classic polish. I liked the houndstooth and blue scarf which is a new addition, and I decided to include to to add a bit of warmth in case it's super cold in your part of the world! This is a look that I gravitate to, as I love the toughness that a leather jacket introduces, but it still leaves the outfit casual and completely wearable. 

The leather jacket is a piece that's extremely versatile - I've also worn this with dresses, thicker sweaters, and shirts. Let me know what your favorite ways to style a leather jacket are, if you leave a comment down below! I hope you enjoyed this post, as well as the rest of the outerwear edit, and that you've gotten some new ideas if you're coat shopping! Best of luck to you - stay warm AND stay stylish in the next few months.

As always, thanks for reading. I appreciate all your support!
