The sense of normalcy I have while writing this is no short of what I like to call a good feeling. Yes we wear face masks, and yes we live in pandemic street style reality, BUT some of us still have a big desire to celebrate life through clothes, be it staples, minimal style or just basic ol outfits topped with red lips. Even as those will go masked and covered up… personally I never forget to selfie a rare makeup day situation.
Anyway… back to today’s dilemma (gosh I missed fashion dilemmas)… how weird and refreshing is it that upon documenting this post I literally came across anther such post, almost identical in its (my) quest circa 3 yrs ago?
Am I really that redundant? Or maybe there’s a legitimate dilemma with no wrong or right answers?
What autumn jackets do we reach for once fall season is here: BLAZERS or LEATHER JACKETS?
Sure one does not have to exclude the other. We can all be both Dolce and Gabbana dolls and V. Beckham minimal girls… BUT do we live in a time where the staple of jackets – the leather jacket – has lost ground? How do we feel about that?
I know, I know…. a series of Q that are only making this thing harder.
The truth is both jackets are pretty fab, and at the end of the day it’s all a matter of what you want. At first sight there’s not even a style battle as the differences between them are huge: the leather jacket is more badass, cooler, a forever staple of rocknroll and edge, while the blazer is more polished, professional, sleek, and classic.
Well, leave it to fashion to color out of the lines and ruin a perfectly good antithesis of items, cause in 2020 you can get a badass vibe with a blazer in no less than 3 seconds, and a very clean and classic cut look with a leather jacket in equally the same amount of time.
So you see why 3 years post my initial article I am still struggling to find a decent answer to this?
Women are pairing blazers with leggings and combat boots, or even track suits. I can’t begin to tell you the amount of times I’ve worn a blazer over a gym outfit as I made a quick run to the shops. Being a mom I’m always in a hurry in gym clothes but I also always wanna look like I’m not… hence my blazer tendencies lately.
Oh and don’t get me started on the 2020 leather jackets. They are so BEAUTIFUL in their massive cuts and oversized masculine vibe that to say I adore them is a big understatement. Like I ADORE them. They are the definition of 80s badass style, regardless of what you have underneath: flirty dress, boots, sneakers, stilettos, sweats, leggings, jeans.
Shop leather jackets:
Ultimately it’s all about what your vibe is the day of. Just keep in mind one tip if you can – no matter your jacket of choice, remember bigger is better.
And now it’s your turn: are you team blazer or team leather jacket?
What a nice chat this was. I feel I’m leaving with an even bigger dilemma but what can I do, that’s life.
Stay safe y’all. xx
