The (Faux) Leather Jacket + A Giveaway!

Spring has finally sprung in NY and you know what that means? Leather jacket season! Fun fact: I’ve never own a black leather jacket before. The one that I’m wearing in this blog post is my first one. It’s a faux one (can’t afford a real one yet) and yet it looks like its made from genuine leather. When it comes to jackets I’m very particular when it comes to style and fit, especially leather jackets since there’s so many styles.

Top: ASOS | Skirt: H&M (similar) | Jacket: Missguided (similar) | Shoes: DSW | Sunnies: Quay Australia

What I love about this jacket from Missguided are all the little details it has, such as the zippers on the top of the jacket, the little button pocket on the bottom and the belt detail around the waist. The fit of the jacket is a little boxy and the sleeves are a tad small, but if I went up a size, then it would have been too loose in the chest area. Although my arms feel a little tight in the sleeves, it’s not too uncomfortable. Once I lose a little bit of weight, it should fit better.

I decided to pair the jacket with an olive chiffon pleated skirt and a black bodysuit. I told ya’ll from my last post that olive is probably going to be my go to color for the Spring/Summer. I promise to mix up my color palette in future posts. Anyway, I love to mix up hard and soft pieces because it spices up the outfit and adds an extra umph to it. I am so happy with how this outfit came out and I’m warning you guys now, you will see more of this jacket in further post!
