This fall is all about playing with contrasts. Edgy spikes on sophisticated pumps, bold printed coats over muted layers, jackets with contrasting sleeves, military-inspired layers over flouncy girly dresses, you name it – it’s time to experiment, mix and match, and combine all aspects of your personality and fashion sense towards one fashionable finished product! One of my favorite new examples of this is the peplum leather jacket. A wardrobe staple traditionally attributed to adding a little more moto-chic edge to your ensemble is getting the girly treatment with skirted peplum details, so you can toe the lines between naughty and nice, girly and tomboy, and edgy and flirty. Plus, while some peplum styles are tricky to pull off on certain figures, as they add extra volume and force you to be more mindful of proportions, peplum jackets help take the boxiness out of your typical leather bomber or moto-style jacket so you can show off your girlish figure, even under multiple fall-friendly layers!
