Make the transition from Spring to Summer with a Leather Jacket


March comes in like a lamb but goes out like a lion, April brings on cold showers and May is straddling winter temps and summer sunshine all the while puffing pollen and other sneeze causing things in the air.  There is no rule of thumb on how to dress in mid season except maybe …. make it flexible.  Last week in Tuscany everyone was working on a “cambia di armadio” which may sound rather intimidating but it actually just means switching their winter wardrobe for their summer attire.  And for some people this can be quite a daunting task (my colleague at work takes a week off just to get it right – but then she uses her spare bedroom as a walk-in closet.) For others this could mean just making sure the wool sweaters get some lavender perfumed slips to keep the moths away.

The trick to the transition is always leave something warm to cover those unexpected temp drops from tropical to Siberia.  Last week I was cutting the lawn in shorts and a halter top and this week its been so chilly I have had to sleep in my pile PJs to keep warm!  One just wants to scream where is the logic here!!  So the obvious choice here is the leather jacket addition which works well in all temps and provides a distinctive fashion statement.  Here are a couple of my favorites:

The leather trench coat look


Sometimes its the color or texture of the leather that makes a statement, like this distressed leather Jacket from Michael Kors. Reminds me of the Campomaggi look: rustic and sophisticated all at the same time.Suede leather jacket with puffer lookI am always a little bit nervous about wearing a suede leather jacket – however you can not deny that when it is smooth and soft, its a pure delight to run your hand over a suede leather jacket.

Cropped Leather Jacket for women

Probably the easiest look to get away with is a cropped leather jacket – like the collarless version above in beige nappa leather with contrasting tobacco trim or the classic all black designer leather jacket for women with a dual collar.
