When I first started my blog I wrote a post about the Wardrobe Essentials Every Girl Should Have and later on as a part of my Style Series I wrote another piece about how to achieve a classic style using just about the same essentials. Now I still swear on those basic pieces but I also believe that there are new modern pieces that I believe have earned a spot on every girls closet.
One of those pieces has to be a leather jacket. This is not by any means considered as new. This fashion forward jacket has been used since the 1940's. Mostly by men at the time, but slowly and surely this hot item became wearable for both members of the opposite sex. In recent times this jacket is no longer reserved for bad girls and and rock-stars. Now anyone can wear them in any style that there heart and personal style desires.

What makes a leather jacket a new modern classic? Well take a look around you. Leather jackets are everywhere now in days. They now come in a variety of different cuts, colors, and in some cases even embellishments. We also have the choice to choose between real leather or faux leather, which is what I prefer.
Adding a leather jacket to any outfit instantly takes the outfit to another level. It completes a edgy outfit, or it can toughen up a otherwise sweet outfit like a floral dress. At times it even turns a simple; slight boring outfit into something extra nice. All in all a leather jacket adds a instant chic factor to your personal style.
Here are a few examples of Leather Jackets being used in outfits . . . .
It may take some time to find the perfect leather jacket for you (It took me 3 years to find the right one for me) but when you find it I guarantee you will be dying to use it everyday and worth the extra space in your closet.
