It’s Leather Weather

A timeless essential that foregoes micro-trends.

It’s Leather Weather
Trunk Archive

Trends come and go, but leather is made to stay. Warmer weather is approaching, but it's not quite warm yet. We have yet to sport a T-shirt sans sleeves here on the East Coast. Enter: the trusty leather jacket. A timeless essential, a ride-or-die; call it what you want, a leather jacket is the one piece that supersedes trends, torrential weather, and accidental coffee spills. The internet is brimming with options, so we made your search a tad easier by highlighting some favorites below.

After spotting Dua Lipa in a leather trench, it’s fair to say I’m obsessed. It’s edgy and chic, but most importantly, strong enough to protect against harsh winds. And where better to look for a trench than Burberry?


Vintage Moto Jacket

F1 racing has been all the rage lately. The sport has fast cars, a Netflix docuseries, and team-fan rivalries. If you’re not keen on sports, fine, but don’t let that stop your interest from bubbling up when it comes to fashion. Racing jackets make adding color and detail to a basic outfit easy.
