Yes it is time to start investing in one of Fall's hottest trends...leather. I know the hot, steamy days of August are on their way, but one of my favorite leather brands, Veda has created some of the best transitional must-haves of the coming season. Veda is known for its soft, often lighter weight skins and CRAZY good prices. Most of the jackets are under $700 which is unheard of for such amazing contemporary design and superior quality. You know I am a big high-low girl, so when I find high-end designer inspired pieces at great prices well I just have to celebrate...luckily, Veda's Cropped Studded Leather Jacket is just the piece to party in!!! It is so trend right without being too trend over-the-top...cropped/tux-like shape, subtle, studded placket and in THE wear now color, white.
Wear it with jeans and a graphic tee...complete the look with some rock inspired chains and you will pre-fall cool!!! Of course I would also wear it over my LBDs with some killer heels for that real 80's feel. I see this jacket as the fashionista answer to the cardigan...bye bye Breakfast At Tiffany's, hello Fast Times At Ridgemont High!!!
If you are thinking I must be crazy to suggest leather now, well all I have to say is did you go out last night? Just the right amount of summer chill in the air. I know humid August is fast approaching, but this has been such a strange summer that I bet we can expect a few more moto-jacket friendly evenings. Of course, the jacket is only available for pre-order right now, so you might not have it until the seasons actually start to change. This is the perfect click now/wear later opportunity...trust me, this fab Fall must-have will sell out in a flash (only $595).
Remember ladies...I really don't believe in fashion rules, so make sure you buy early fall pieces that are verstaile enough to wear now or at least in the very near future, but that also work well into the colder months. Embrace Fall's rocker trend now...Madonna and Pat Benetar never looked so good!!!!
