Spring Fashion Must-Have: Madewell Avery Leather Biker Jacket


I’m having a moment where I realize that I need to step up my leather game. It’s a strange thought considering I’m usually the person who puts leather away come May but I think this season a great neutral leather jacket might be just the thing to keep me looking rather stylish and add just that right amount of pop to my spring dresses in bold colors and neutrals.

Hence, I’m turning to a whiskey brown version. I LIVE for this color on every single woman (Anne Hathaway wears a jacket like this in The Devil Wears Prada and I live for her in it) and it looks good with pretty much everything. Printed maxi dress? Check. Jeans and a t-shirt? Check. Beaded miniskirt with a slouchy tank and peep-toe wedge booties? Yep. Plus, the double-breasted style and washed look give it that found-it-in-the-garage feel that adds that touch of ultimate cool.

For those of you who don’t wear leather, there’s a rather suitable alternative: this Sparkle & Fade Faux Leather Bomber Jacket from Urban Outfitters. It’s just as cute and versatile and a fabulous faux.
