If you want to add just a touch of leather to any spring ensemble, try the super on-trend leather sleeve jacket. These contrast sleeve coats come in a variety of forms—military jackets, blazers, wool peacoats, varsity jackets, anything! I mean, who could forget that Alexander Wang suede and leather motorcycle number that changed the sleeve game up forever? Not us! No matter what the fabric, we’re finding any way to sport this look, so let’s some cues from these three stylish ladies and see how it’s done.

Victoria Kemerer of Style And Fashion Lover
Victoria is one of those girls that can channel retro fashion mixed with modern pieces so well that we can’t even tell what’s vintage and what’s brand new! Here she wears a contrast tweed and leather coat with a black turtleneck, beige scallop-edged shorts, a quilted leather chain bag, Christian Louboutin booties, and oversized sunglasses. (Psst! If you’re looking for some serious hair inspiration, be sure to peep her blog.)

Cindy Van der Heyden of Come Over To The Dark Side We Have Candy

Cindy hails from Amsterdam and is the QUEEN of the cool-jacket-and-chic-trousers outfit. Her green and black parka jacket is straight from Zara (score!), and she paired it with a loose white tee tucked into cuffed skinny jeans. She accessorized with a fold-over clutch, Ray-Ban sunglasses, zip-up booties, and KILLER sea foam green nails. This is probably the most stylish outfit for kickin’ back we’ve ever seen. *slow clap*

Sassi of Asterisque
Blog: Twitter: @asterisque_5.
Germany-based blogger Sassi always bring the ’tude with her sassy (sorry, we had to) short hair and stellar ensembles. Here she wears a camel wool blazer with leather sleeves, a scoop neck black dress, opaque black tights, and Primark lace-up booties. For a touch of sparkle, she added a cross pendant necklace, a chain-link ring, ’60s hoop earrings, and aviator sunglasses. Perfect!
