Leather Weather: A Black Leather Jacket At Any Age To Suit Your Every Mood!
I’ll Have What She’s Having: A modern & global spin on a classic black leather jacket as an age-appropriate celebrity favorite
Baby, it’s leather weather! Not too hot, not too cold (yet) and just right for some hard core downtown motorcycle style done right, may it be city, casual, or dressy.
From London, New York, to Cannes, we’ve got Kate Moss, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Isabelle Huppert sporting a black leather jacket in three ageless ways that will surely suit YOUR wardrobe.

When it comes to rocking it out whist still being both age-appropriate and ageless, please note that these ladies are in their LATE 30s, 40s, and 50s. Style doesn’t have an expiration date when it looks right.
City chic- Kate Moss bops about London in her Marc by Marc Jacobs black leather Sargeant jacket paired with ankle-baring straight leg pants and classic pointy toe pumps. Simple classic all black chic that looks modern and fresh from day to night. Swap out to these Sam Edelman pumps with a metallic heel for even more edge.
Mom Errands- Sarah Jessica Parker wore her Belstaff Triumph jacket that even tzuj’s up her plastic bag. A lightweight down vest worn underneath adds warmth to take the jacket into chilly weather. Here’s a Eddie Bauer featherweight vest version; Uniqlo is great too.
Dinner Date- Isabelle Huppert poses during the 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival back in May. Her motorcycle jacket over a flouncy cocktail LBD is an au currant and ageless touch for a chilly night. Swap out more summary bare legs with a pair of killer stiletto boots for fall into winter. These Giancarlo Paoli high heel boots at Yo0x add a sexy, but not slutty, accent to a dressier flirty dress.
