The Trendsetter: Leather jackets
October 20, 2010
If you’re a fan of “Project Runway,” you know all too well that season five contestant Stella Zotis loves her “leatha.” If you aren’t familiar with the show here’s some background: Stella was a creative designer from Queens, New York who couldn’t get enough of leather (which she pronounced as “leatha” in her endearing East Coast accent).
And although Stella might take her fondness of all things leather to the extreme, one of the best ways for you to harness this trend is with a classic leather jacket
The most important thing to keep in mind when looking for a leather jacket is fit. Many women believe that a bigger garment will cover them up and make them look smaller when in fact, just the opposite is true. Oversized clothing hides your shape and makes you look bigger than you actually are.
Also, be careful you don’t pick a fit that is too small. The key is to pay special attention to the stitching details on the jacket as this can create a sleek and slim silhouette.
Enjoy searching for this sexy and sophisticated trend and don’t be afraid to take risks!
