JET BY JOHN ESHAYA PERFORATED LEATHER SLEEVE BASEBALL JACKET IN BLACK AND WHITE


Fall is just around the corner and we have nothing but leather on our mind. This year, you can find leather on everything from tees and blouses to biker chic leggings. It's also gotten easier to wear leather year round. 

In early fall, wear your leather leggings with a graphic tank and booties or even strappy sandals. If you need a light layer for a night out, finish your look with a versatile denim jacket. When colder temperatures move in, you can't go wrong with pairing your leggings with a chunky knit sweater. Pair it with your booties and you have can't fail style. 

If a ladylike look is more your thing, try a leather peplum or skirt, even both together! The classic silhouettes tone down the rock and roll feel of leather and make it an office appropriate option. A blazer can take these pieces from day to night. 

Don't be afraid of leather. If you're on the fence or afraid to mix it into your wardrobe, try contrast sleeve pieces like the collection of Bobo Sweaters from Generation Love. A knit body and leather sleeves mean you can go as daring as you'd like with your fall look. Paired back to skinnies or leather leggings, these tops are an easy way to try the trend. Looking for a layer to mix in? Jet by John Eshaya has a collection of contrast, leather sleeve jackets to fit any style and budget. Army jackets add edge while a baseball jacket gives bloggers a run for their money. 

Remember that leather is meant to be a fun departure and the easiest way to wear it is by mixing textures - knits, tees, silk, lace - anything goes this season with leather.
