Make Believe Monday | Leather Love

Whether you're into the real deal or you prefer a more animal-friendly faux, a leather jacket can carry you from weekend to weekday and back again many times over. This statement piece is right near the top of my post-diet wish list.  A tailored fit is the key to making this weekend standby office appropriate.

Leather jackets come in all colors and shapes, but my favorite is the motorcycle style -- big shiny zippers and a tab waist. Not sure if I'd prefer the tab button collar or lapels, but I've got a year to decide. Here are some of my faves:

 

I love how the zipper detail carries all the way up to the end of the lapel.

 

An animal- and budget-friendly alternative.

Buttery tan and big pockets.  'Nuff said.

Any one of these jackets could be tossed on for work or for play. I'd love to see the BR jacket replace the blazer in this outfit, also from the BR website.


This, this, and this outfit of mine could have used a leather jacket to top them off and give them a new spin.  How would you incorporate a leather jacket into your work wardrobe?
