Casual Weekend Style: Hooded Leather Jacket + Destructed Denim

I’ve been waiting for the weather to warm up enough to wear this outfit, and I was finally able to wear it to the mall one day last week. This is the hooded leather jacket that came in my first box from Trunk Club.

The minute I pulled it out of the box, I knew I wasn’t going to want to part with it. Fortunately it fit as well as I hoped it would, and the smell of genuine leather was intoxicating.

I had already been eyeing up leather jackets online, and I wanted one that wasn’t the typical black, so this hit the nail on the head. I love everything about it — the cut, the color, and the detachable knit hood which makes it extra versatile.

With the hood attached, it has a sporty vibe, so I decided to style a casual weekend outfit that would be perfect for shopping with the kids or meeting a friend for coffee.

I went right to this grey V-neck tee and my ripped black jeans. It would be just as cute with blue jeans, and I suppose I could have done a black or white tee, but I love the combination of grey and burgundy.

I decided to wear my Chucks as opposed to the black ankle boots that I originally went for. I like how they play off the knit hood and keep the look sporty.

I know not everyone is into the ripped jeans. I totally get that. But black jeans have become one of my go-to wardrobe essentials this winter, and I think every woman should have a pair in her closet.

For a non-ripped version that is on sale for $113, try these Joe’s Flawless Skinny Jeans. Joe’s is a brand I don’t talk about much anymore, but they used to be my favorites. They make a great pair of jeans.

For a more budget friendly version, I am really liking American Eagle for jeans. They’re all my daughter wears, and they look great on her. They have this black pair for $49.50, and right now they’re buy 1, get 1 50% off!

This grey t-shirt is my “investment tee.” In fact, I’m realizing as I type this up that this entire outfit is made up of investment pieces to some extent.

I got the jeans on sale, but they still were a bit of a splurge. Same goes for the handbag.

The Converse Shoreline sneakers are $49, but they go on sale from time to time if you watch. In fact, there is a Converse Event on HauteLook today!!!
