Fashion Flashback: The Fitted Leather Jacket

Masculin Féminin: '60s French pop chanteuse Francoise Hardy

Apologies for the lack of updates.  I have returned from Lollapalooza in one piece!  It went by in a blur, and it's strange to think that fall is now right around the corner.  Summer was a blink of an eye.

A staple I'm going to invest in for the fall is a fitted leather jacket a la '60s icon Francoise Hardy, who was effortlessly chic.  The leather jacket gained popularity with the younger crowd when the swingin' 60s fashion movement swept London, thanks to the Mods (short for Modernist, used to describe modern jazz music fans of the '50s).

I particularly like the idea of pairing the leather jacket with something flowy, like a long, pleated skirt.  I love the contrast between the masculine and feminine.
