From Indiana Jones to Madonna, leather jackets will never go out of style, and the trend, which enjoyed a re-vamp for Fall 2012, is stronger than ever. Jason Wu’s most recent collection best demonstrates how to effortlessly incorporate leather into your everyday wardrobe.
Luckily, leather goes with everything: in this look, pairing a leather jacket with brightly colored skinny trousers ensures your lower half is still seen, even when you’re wearing a heavy jacket on top.
Fabulous details like the fire red piping on this coat are difficult to find if you’re not shopping designer collections, but you can still mimic the look with structured panels made of different material.
So go ahead and dare to wear leather. This classic will always embody the essence of cool.
