Mad for Moto Jackets

Sunday, December 15th, 2013

Fashion posts are rare around here but I felt like talking about it today. Lately I’m obsessed with fitted faux leather jackets – this one arrived in the mail a few days ago and it’s a new favorite. The latest term for faux leather or pleather is ‘vegan leather’ but by any name, the cropped leather look jacket is still hot!

When I was visiting NYC earlier this year I noticed just about every designer or retailer had a version of a fitted moto jacket – some of them in the thousands (ouch this leather Versace is $3,995!) but I’m a “look for less” gal so I rounded up a dozen favorites – I want a colorful one for spring, they’re edgy and fun and I love them paired with skirts and dresses, don’t you?
