Found: A Leather Jacket That Works For Me

I never fancied myself a leather jacket kind of gal. I want to be a Danny Zuko in leather, but I end up looking more like a Sonny (deep Grease cut right there). That was, until I tried this AllSaints Balfern Biker Leather Jacket in the most gorgeous sage green I have ever seen.

Maybe I am a leather jacket lady.

There’s something very adult and sophisticated about a leather jacket. It can elevate a basic outfit and provides a serious cool factor. I was skeptical of AllSaints originally, because their jackets only run up to a size US 10 (yes, I said a 10). Obviously I’d love to see more size inclusion, but what surprised me is that the largest size actually fit me. It is a tad tight in the upper arms (swimmer shoulders strike again), but because it is real leather, I’ve been able to break it in. Leather jackets do stretch somewhat.

Fit Notes: The coat runs small (size up; I’m wearing a size 10US). As I mentioned, you can break it in, though. My jeans run TTS (I’m wearing a 30). The top runs big (if between sizes, size down; I’m wearing a medium). The booties are TTS.

This AllSaints Balfern Leather Biker Jacket has become the perfect complement to my wardrobe. I’ve paired it with my Steve Madden Sloanne Boots, MOTHER Denim Jeans, favorite under-$30 top and Rejina Pyo clutch for a sophisticated fall look. It works as a put-together day look, or elevates an LBD (like what I wore on my 10-year anniversary date night).

I was excited for our relocation to Big Sky Country, but my wardrobe was severely lacking. Specifically coats. I’m sure the appeal of colder weather will wear off come the 15th snowstorm, but for now I am dreaming (of a white Christmas) and wearing tons of fabulous coats this winter.

  1. I bought that exact leather jacket (in the deep berry red color) at the Anni sale this summer and I, too, couldn’t be happier with the purchase. It’s a beautiful jacket that definitely ups the cool factor for any outfit!
