One of my favorite closet staples are leather jackets because they give instant edge and to any outfit. To avoid looking like a biker the best thing is to do is accessorize your jacket well. During the cold winter months try pairing your jacket with a pashmina or layer it with a feminine top for a softer look.
Two important things to remember when purchasing a leather jacket :
1. Don't pay full price - unless money grows on trees in your area leather jackets are pricey. Do your research, you can always find one on sale somewhere.
2. Quality is very important - always make sure its 100% leather not fake leather aka 'Pleather' Like all other closet staples you want it to last you for years.
I had planned on accessorizing with just the pashmina but I found that adding the necklace would be a nice touch.
I opted for a pashmina instead of a scarf. Pashminas provide a effortless yet stylish look. I received this ethnic print Pashmina as a gift from Pakistan. I love how it offers texture and provides a nice contrast to the leather.
