White Leather

Something about this entire picture makes me think 1980s, or maybe it's everything about this picture.  Excuse me, someone please help me.  I need to know how I can casually wear this white leather jacket.  I really like it - but it's harder than I thought incorporating it with the rest of my clothes.  This is what I wore to church yesterday. And I wore this red lipstick.  I actually really liked it, and I didn't feel weird wearing it.  Unfortunately, these pictures were taken before I put it on.  Maybe next post!
What I'm wearing:
White Leather Jacket: F21
T-shirt: ag black v-neck, boston
tights: target
Shoes: Marc by Marc Jacobs

So, you agree? This looks like a blast from the past, and I'm not sure it's a past I want to remember.  I really love this jacket, I just need to figure out how to wear it!

Gorgeous Jacket! would look great with jeans & a grey T shirt, also fab thrown over little dresses in brown, nude, grey, yellow or denim. There are lots of possibilities for this Jacket - keep experimenting, you've got some great clothes so i'm sure you'll put together some gorgeous looks!

I love the jacket! You look so polished and put together in it. I agree that it will be a tougher piece to dress down. I don't actually own anything entirely white (b/c I spill stuff everywhere), but I think it would look phenomenal with a pair of your skinnies and flats.
Can't wait to see how you restyle it!

I would wear it with black pants or jeans and treat it as a blazer.

LOVE those shoes--pant, pant. I would wear the jacket with gray flannel trousers and some type of white/ecru tank underneath.

Thanks for your kind comment on my blog!

You can TOTALLY dress it down! I love it. Never part with it or I may steal it ;) You can wear jeans, flats, and a tshirt with it. I'm totally loving those Marc Jacobs shoes too!

i never thought i'd say this...but i'm really loving that white leather! you work it perfectly with those red shoes. maybe try going for a modern rocker chic look with a vintage tee and denim. :)

You do look rather 80s - but in a fabulous, decadent way! Maybe it'd look more modern with skinny jeans, a nautical striped tee and some flats? :)

i love love this outfit! the marc jacobs shoes are to die! i recently have been wearing red lipstick and i am in love with it! i am sure it looks gorgeous with your blonde hair!

So I'm going to join in on drooling over those shoes...
How about over a floral dress? Obviously with dark jeans and a tee, but I'd leave it open for a causal feel, and maybe mix with an interesting skirt, patterned? You could throw on a big scarf and let it take center stage...
Well that's all I have, have fun!

i love the dress it down suggestion. especially with gray. maybe wear it open with a loose t shirt or add a paisley scarf as an afterthought?
