I have discovered how crucial it is for black wardrobe lovers to have the perfect leather jacket. I love wearing black, but I was missing the jacket to complete so many looks that needed a little boost. Leather jackets are the best edge to even the simplest outfit.
I went with vegan leather because I love how it’s environmentally friendly, and just like relationships, I don’t need something strictly for the label. If vegan leather does the same job as real leather for a third of the price and doesn’t hurt the environment, I’m all in. I also sincerely hope that relationship joke made you laugh a little.
Let’s discuss how this jacket earned the name “squad goals.” The cut of it is my favorite part. Instead of fitting wider at the bottom, it tapers in to better mold to your shape. I find this detail so much more flattering.
The jacket comes with a detachable belt, however, I feel that the belt gives a little more dimension to the piece. There are two lines of zippers depending on the tightness of the fit you want, and the collar has built in buttons if you want it to lay flat.
The look of the jacket is very tailored. This gives you more variety to wear it with dresses or skirts without the added bulk. I actually purchased a rose colored maxi length dress the day I got this jacket, and the two looked great together. I love outfits that are both girly and edgy, to give a nice balance.
As for the color, it was a given that I was going to go with black. I wanted it to be a staple piece in my wardrobe, so black is the best option for that. For a second jacket I’m definitely considering getting a color… but black is my love! ♥ ♥ ♥
If you’re looking for a leather jacket, I think the Squad Goals one is a great choice. It retails for $128. The link: https://www.freepeople.com/shop/squad-goals-vegan-leather-jacket/
As for pairing outfits, I’ll go with the casual sneakers look, booties, or over the knee boots. I love my Adidas Originals Superstars for the casual look, because the black details tie in with the jacket. Booties look great with black leggings or black pants for city look. Since leather jackets are edgy, pairing them with dresses and sneakers are super cute for spring and summer! That will be my go-to once it gets warmer. ♥
I will always go with vegan leather to support the environment, and I don’t support the use of dead animal skin. This small change is so easy to make! Stella McCartney, for instance, only uses vegan leather in her designs, further supporting this movement. Even Natalie Portman, who has become a beloved fashion icon, has her own vegan leather shoe line.
I hope this review of the Squad Goals jacket found you all well! Thanks for reading. xx
