Fall Essential: Leather Jacket | In Search of Sheila

Fall Essential: Leather Jacket

October 14, 2016

Jacket: H&M (similiar) / Turtleneck: Forever 21 / Pants: Urban Outfitters / Shoes: Nike

The response to my Fall Fashion Essentials post was incredible (thank you!) and it got me to thinking about how I needed to feature the leather jacket on here. I haven't been too keen on wearing mine this season yet, mostly due to the fact that I always feel too edgy and bikerish in one. So my challenge to myself was to style it in a more casual, minimal, sporty style. Enter the game-changer: sneakers.

I can't get over how a good pair of sneakers can totally change the vibe of an outfit. So glad I invested in these Nike Roshes! They pair well with so many looks, like these cropped trousers I've been wanting to style in a more casual way since I always wear them to work.

Whenever I need some outfit inspo I always head to Google images, which never seems to fail me. I've been obsessed with minimal street-style lately, so this look is definitely channeling that. Pairing casual pieces with more chic pieces is a good way to look effortlessly cool, without trying too hard.

What do you think of leather jackets? How do you like to style them for fall? Where do you get your outfit inspo?

  6. Leather jackets are always amazing! I feel like they really complement so many different outfits, you can wear them with nearly anything! Totally agree about the sneakers too. It's amazing what kind of outfits we can get away with wearing sporty shoes with now.

    Anyways those pants are such a gorgeous deep hue and they look super comfortable too! I just love the movement in them.
