Army Chic ft Boda Skins

You may have noticed quite a lot of the looks I have been posting recently are more everyday casual looks. I really wanted to bring in really wearable outfits that would be easy for a lot of people to recreate without having to go out and buy a whole new wardrobe. A leather jacket and a flannel are staples in so many wardrobes, and pairing the two together is not exactly revolutionary on my part, but the gorgeous military detailing on this Boda Skins leather jacket, meant I could bring in the current trend of military styling into an old favourite and simple outfit of mine. 

As this was a super simple and wearable outfits, black skinny jeans and black boots completed the relaxed look really easily and without going to too much effort. Leather jackets are really great for this time of year as with most of them, you can layer up underneath and still retain some shape. I personally do not mind the somewhat straight up and down silhouette with longer winter coats, but for those who prefer to keep some shape, a leather jacket is a really great alternative for you. 

The leather jacket that I'm wearing is the Napoleon Oil Black jacket, if you want to check it out then click here - regarding size, I was lucky enough to go into Boda Skins HQ and choose this gorgeous jacket and the lovely ladies informed me about the sizing. I am normally a size 6, however they said it would be best for me to go for a size 8 instead as it would allow me to layer up underneath (something you need to be able to do spending money on a high quality jacket) and how the initial sizing feels very small, and the leather itself stretches and moulds to your body shape. I have found this to be 100% true, it now fits me like a dream with no restrictions whatsoever. A Boda Skins jacket is a really great idea for a Christmas present if you're looking to treat yourself or someone you love!

Red lips and winged liner are really gorgeous with any leather jacket look, you an skip them if you're looking for a more dressed down and casual look, and then you can go all out if you're wanting to dress this look up further.
