Follow Drew Barrymore's Lead: Leather Jackets Kick Ass During Transition Weather
March 2, 2011
Ah, March: one day it’s windy and nearly freezing, the next is balmy and you can swear it’s spring. With crazy transition weather, Drew Barrymore has the perfect solution– a leather jacket that can be layered on top a sweater for cold nights or thrown over a tee on warmer, sunny days. Here, five Barrymore-inspired options sure to keep you covered until flip flop season.
Topshop’s Navy Borg Collar Faux Leather Bomber Jacket ($110) has a cozy collar and a worn-in look that we love. Plus, the navy blue shade is a welcome alternative to standard black.
This Vero Moda Very Leather Biker Jacket ($172.13, from $286.88) is the grown-up answer to the traditional leather jacket. Suede panels and an assymetrical zipper spell sophistication. Throw on a scarf for a burst of color, a la Drew.
If you associate dark colors with winter, look no further than the pale grey Steve Madden’s Knit & Faux Leather Jacket ($78) for your warmer-weather topper. The play on textures here, a mix leather and stretchy knit, is an unexpected touch.
Perhaps the most Barrymore-esque, this Miss Sixty Black Faux Leather Studded Zip Moto Jacket ($84), with its studded collar, has just the right amount of punk edge. Channel Drew by pairing with vintage sunglasses.
Toughen up a girly floral dress with a goes-with-everything classic like Marc New York by Andrew Marc’s Dakota Leather Coat ($208.60, from $298).
