Obsession of the Day: Day Birger et Mikkelsen Autumn Leather Studded Jacket

Now, I know what you’re thinking: that you’d like to shake me for even showing you leather when it’s 90 + degrees outside… but hear me out on this one.

This bohemian-chic chocolate brown jacket can seamlessly transition you from season to season: layer it over a drapey white cotton dress and add metallic cage sandals now for a dazzling nighttime look, then slip it on over more substantial pieces come fall. Leather’s not just for winter anymore: used properly (and applied in cooler environments – think rooftop cocktails at night), it’s an accessory that can look incredibly fresh and cool year-round.

Plus, how can you deny the beauty of the details: raw-edged seams,  brass-tone stud embellishment, asymmetrical front zip, long sleeves with zip cuffs? It’s like a Laurel Canyon version of a British motorcycle jacket.

I mean, even though it’s hot outside, it doesn’t mean you can’t turn up the heat by showing up in this gorgeous leather jacket. They’ll just have to adjust the A/C.
