The Leather Jacket (November 2005 - February 2011)
Lately I've been noticing a lot of leather jackets in boutiques and online. Mary-Kate Olsen and Lindsay Lohan have also been spotted wearing them. I personally like this trend and am searching for the perfect one.

I'll try to post some pictures later.

I like the look of leather jackets as well on certain celebs but I think you have to have a certain edge or coolness to pull them off.

i think leather jackets are always going to be timeless style. i have a brown suede leather jacket with a half-collar, looks very sleek and refined. I plan on getting another leather jacket that is non-suede as well for the wet days.

My dad has been sporting them for 50 years... I don't think they ever leave, it's just that the hipsters rediscover them.

My favorite type of leather jacket has an oversized fur collar. I have one that I've outgrown. I think they are popular now, too.

This is an American Eagle one for $198.

Leather jackets are so classic! I've had my Gap leather blazer jacket for five years now, and it's just perfection.

Yeah, I agree leather jackets are a classic. They just seem to be more popular again with younger celebrities. I've noticed trendier designers have come out with their own versions recently (Ya-Ya, Juicy, etc.).

Olsen twins




Lindsay Lohan

+ there are many example of Kate Moss on her "candids" thread

Can someone post runway pictures to balance out all that "star mania"? Would be much appreciated.

I'll try to find some. Mostly I've seen them in more independent designer collections and typical boutique brands.
