Leather Jackets are fashion essentials

“Long hair minimizes the need for barbers; socks can be done without; one leather jacket solves the coat problem for many years; suspenders are superfluous.” ~ Albert Einstein

I had always adored leather jackets and I see them as a fashion essential. Bikers, rock stars, punks, metal heads and goths usually wear leather jackets probably because of the intimidating look that these jackets create and the protection that they give. But for a non-goth fashionista, a leather jacket means cool. It transforms an outfit into something incredible.

Living in the tropics gives me an excuse not to wear leather jacket; the temperature usually hits as high as 40-42 degrees in this country and thus sporting a leather jacket is hardly an opportunity. However, when I get to move to Europe, leather jackets would definitely be my most favorite apparel.

Here are some of the leather jackets that I covet. I found my first choices very expensive thus prompting me to look for alternatives that are more affordable.

So tell me girls. If you are to take one black and one brown leather jacket from the above, which would you go for?

I would have to say neither one. I try not to wear leather at all and the only leather jacket I ever had was by Rick Owens of his "shadow" collection. I simply could not resist it.:-)))

I love leather jackets! It's now a perfect time to wear them here in Finland because it's not too cold yet - so I'm wearing mine all the time! :)
