Splurge Or Steal: Leather Jackets

There is nothing as timeless, flattering and versatile as a leather jacket. Both dressy and casual, pretty and punk, a good leather jacket can change the look of an entire outfit. Throw it on over a dress for an edgy twist, or over a plain tee and jeans to dress the whole look up.

The best thing is about this wardrobe essential is that anyone can own one, regardless of your budget. Synthetic leather and PU variations are great for those who still want to rock a jacket, minus the debt. There is no denying though that a quality leather jacket is a great investment. A cow or lamb hide leather jacket will last you a lifetime, and will mould around your body to fit you like a glove.
