In my opinion, leather jackets are essential to life.
The right leather jacket can completely transform an outfit– taking a super girly dress and giving it a rocker edge, or making the classic jean-and-tee combo a little more dangerous. It’s a great piece to have on hand for transitional weather (i.e., spring, fall or a chilly summer evening), and provides an interesting layer to any outfit.
Mike & Chris is a go-to brand for super cool + easy chic leather. However, the price tag can be little staggering.
So let’s have a little This and That, shall we? Allow me to present a good M&C dupe:
The Mike & Chris option (top left, via Net-A-Porter) will set you back $825. Yikes. Lovely, and in the right economic climate (i.e., recent Powerball winner), perhaps totally feasible.
The rezrekshn option, on the other end of the checkbook spectrum, is a more affordable $220 (via Victoria’s Secret). You get still get that fabulous, buttery leather that only gets better with age without having to decide rent vs. cool new jacket.
