So I've bought myself a cream leather jacket, pretty much like the one in the picture, and was feeling pretty pleased with myself (trying to smarten up a bit!). Told my friend, and she was really surprised! Finally got her to explain, and she said that white leather jackets were a "slapper" thing, as in "tarty essex girls with massive drawn on eyebrows"! Is that true?? And if so would I look ridiculous? I'm 26, but probably look and dress a bit older, always very neat and clean! Trying to think of a celebrity I look/act like and the best I can think of is the "Lucy" character in not going out... Please tell me what you think??
No. It is fine. It is not head to toe Burberry! Wear it with floral summer dresses, floaty ones, and over jump suits. If you keep the clothes chic you will look great. Loads of floral dresses around at the moment and anything that's pale pink or nude!
Can you put a picture on of you in a outfit with it? Some people can wear anything and look great. But if it makes you happy then wear it. Also just a warning dark jeans will also leave a mark if they are newish!
I think you'll have to be very careful how you style it. It would look a bit cheap with jeans imo but maybe ok with summer dresses & skirts. I prefer the pale pink ones that are in the shops at the mo.
Well came across this in a thread clear-out. You were right, it didn't look good at all Put it back on ebay and only lost a couple of pounds though! I think I like the idea of leather jackets but in reality they don't really suit me - if they're baggy I look awful, and if they're tight I feel like I can't move my arms!
