Leather and Glen Plaid

While an appreciator of leather jackets on others, they can feel a bit unnatural on me. With a wardrobe that’s looking more and more every day like that an old Italian man, leather jackets can feel too edgy for my usually tailored, tweed-sporting self. So when I was given the opportunity to save this leather jacket from a friend’s giveaway pile, I snatched it up as an opportunity to “make it work”. Bonus points: the sleeves are detachable, turning it into a vest. I’ll play with that version later.

After several rounds of outfits and making disapproving faces at the mirror, I tried this shirt and glen plaid vest combo that I had been thinking would look nice under a trench. Finally the leather jacket felt like “me”.

A big but simple statement ring in black can be worn everyday as a signature piece. I don’t switch my jewelry up too often, so I love pieces that go with everything.
