The Skin I Live In

Either be a vamp or a rocker, a fashionista or a lady, you need to have at least one piece of leather clothing in your closet. Let it be a motorcycle jacket, shorts or a pencil skirt; wearing leather has been extremely common since the 80s, in other words since the beginning of the gothic rocker years. Of course this statement is valid for leather clothing, the material itself has been used for practical or decorative purposes for more than 500 years.

If you want to go safe, prefer a black motorcycle jacket that would basically go with everything. However I advise you to opt for some more interesting choices such as full skirts, beige shorts, burgundy trousers or green jackets. You won’t need anything else to steal the spotlight.

Some people prefer synthetic leather in order to preserve the nature and save animals, but for those who wants to use real leather for quality reasons; I say, at least always use vintage leather so that no more animals would suffer for you (same with fur).
