*Leather Jacket: Rag & Bone. Denim: Current/Elliott. Bag: Givenchy. Shoes: Louboutin. Sunglasses: Francois Pinton*
Lovers. My obsession with leather jackets needs no reiteration, yeah? I mean, if 90 degree temps (unbearable for yours truly) aren’t enough to deter leather jacket wearage, what will? (Let’s not test that.) I do realise it’s spring, and donning BLACK leather would make me look INSANE. However, this neon green number from Rag & Bone is bright enough for me to rationalise that YES, this is INDEED a SPRING apropos leather jacket. The most flattering piece? Um, no. This jacket is technically a mens and an ideal piece to wear if you want to keep the paparazzi (or friends) guessing whether or not you’re with child. (For the record, I am NOT.) I used it on a shoot I styled last year on (you guessed it) a GUY (fit him to a T), but was too infatuated with it’s one-of-a-kindness to not buy it for my own “archives” (fancy verbage to rationalise buying for myself). Sure, body con jackets are more flattering (and useful in attracting men), but for those days you want to fly under the radar (in body shape, clearly not color), a mens jacket is ideal. Your boyfriend (or hubs) will likely hate it, but you can appease him later with a tight dress that leaves little to the imagination. Never in bad form to keep ‘em guessing.
