Browsing

Do you love black leather jackets? Me too! Although I didn’t wear one in three years now,  I find leather jackets to be perfect for the transition between spring and summer. Finding the perfect one might be a challenge, so get browsing and follow my tips to choose your own.

History of the leather jacket

You might not know this, but the first leather jacket was created for fighter pilots in the first World War! It only made it in fashion in the 90’s and it remained at the cool item of a wardrobe.

How to choose your leather jacket

Look at the leather’s quality 

That’s a pretty straight forward advice, but do look out for the leather’s quality. Signs of early damage while it’s already on the store’s hanger has to make you forget about it. Just imagine how many damages it will suffer from while you’re wearing it. If it’s NOT super soft, then the leather will pass the test of time and look its best after you’ve worn it for a while.

Check the interior fabric

Assuming you’re buying it for Spring, you still want to check its interior. If it looks that it will keep you warm enough for chilly afternoons, then it will make a really good buy. The last thing you want is to freeze in it while sipping cocktails on a rooftop.

Select the right length

I love it when its length is just above my waist. If it’s longer than that, there are chances for me to not like it just as much. That length makes you look taller and goes with pretty much any style: worn with a jumper, over a dress or over a short top.

Look out for quality zippers

The zippers have to be of good quality because you want your jacket to look on point. Zippers can both ruin and lift up a jacket, so stay close to the quality ones.

Get the right fit

I can’t stand leather jackets that are baggy and loose. For me, the right fit is the one that stays tight to your body. It makes you look uber chic and ah did I mention you can wear it with a dress in spring?

Clean it regularly

There are different special cleaning solutions you can use for its maintenance. The leather can break, so in order to prevent this from happening you might want to give it a rigorous clean once in a while.

Hello lovelies,

It’s all about Spring here on MissAndrada.com; it means it’s time to start wearing some fun & colourful outfits, even though the sun is not out every day in the U.K. Colour brings me another reason to smile throughout my day and I’m sure it will make you just as happy as it makes me. During London Fashion Week, I haven’t seen too many pastels in the collections for Spring and to be honest I was really ok with it. This season is promised to be bolder in colour and textures, so let’s dive in two outfit ideas that you can definitely pull off.

We have a guest on the blog today – it’s one of my best friends, Augusta, who is as passionate about all things fashion & beauty just as I am. So, twinning in a couple of shoots while she was down to London was a ‘Yes, we should do this even though I’ll be there for 3 days’ kind of thing. A massive thank you to her as I’ve always loved to twin in my photos with another cool girl! 

Option One: Red Tailored Blazer, Checked Tunic Dress & Knee-High Boots

Short tunic dresses are wonderful for Spring – the crazier the print, the better. Make the outfit more fun by adding a splash of colour; we went for red and as you can see, we matched it with black and white to make it pop more. The sunnies are the cherry on top for this one! Wear it with knee high-boots if you choose fishnet tights to make the outfit look less provocative.

Option Two: Mustard Silk Shirt, Fish Net Casual Dress & Over the Knee Boots

If you prefer a less elegant look, then a casual dress paired with over the knee boots would be the go-to choice. How to add colour to it? Just pair with a colourful shirt and over the knee boots. Rock the city!
