“Girl, I KNOW you’re hot!” I smile weakly as the last bit of moisture in my dehydrated body beads up on my upper lip. Unless the night is over and I’m heading home, I will never admit to suffering for fashion. I’m not hot. No, I’m not hanging up my leather jacket just because it’s Summer. I chose this look so I will silently face the consequences while working my angles.
Okay, so that scenario didn’t exactly happen…but it’s definitely how I’d react to questions about my [seasonally inappropriate] fashion choices. But what if that choice produces incredible looks? A leather jacket is a dynamic piece that will give you an instant boost. It completes an outfit. It can take a simple outfit from dull to street style chic. I recommend everyone keep a good leather jacket around. Should I hang it up in the heat? Probably. But weather cannot keep me from a good look!
I received this jacket as a birthday gift. My birthday is in May. I couldn’t hold off until September or later to wear it out! The thought of my jacket hanging in the closet filled me up with anticipation. If you find yourself in a similar predicament, adapt the styling of a leather jacket to make it seasonally appropriate. If you insist on wearing an out of season item, check the weather and wear it on a cool Summer’s night. I paired my leather jacket with a bralette and skort so I wouldn’t completely overheat. I may not be wearing my jacket under the “perfect” circumstances, but I’m making it work regardless. I’ve never been a huge rule follower anyway….
