Is a leather jacket indeed a closet essential? Should every woman have one? I’ve often thought that, and wanted one myself, but never got one. Wait, that’s not entirely true. Many years ago, I had a blazer-type leather jacket I bought from the BCBG outlet and I seem to remember wearing it all the time. A couple years ago, I bought a cream-colored KORS leather jacket for a steal off Rue La La and NEVER wore it. The leather was actually very heavy and thick, and we had just moved to Texas, so it didn’t get much use.
Now, Refinery29 Reserve is offering a deal with Andrew Marc and I’m seriously considering a leather jacket again. I love Andrew Marc’s leather (I’ve had two of his handbags), and the price is right (spend $250, get $500 – which would get me the jacket I want)…I’m just not sure I’ll wear it. But maybe it’s enough just to have it in my closet? For when I do want to wear it?
Both the jackets above are the Brynn, by Andrew Marc, which is the one I would buy. I want it to look good open and be a neutral color, but not black. I love the idea of wearing it with dresses & skirts, or over a silk blouse with jeans.
What do you think? Should I go for it?
