Making a Statement with a Red Leather Jacket

As big a fan as I am of leather jackets, I was nervous about the concept of a red one.  Sure, it’s dark red; not the fire engine variety.  But still.  Black leather jackets are ubiquitous now, and hardly feel cutting edge.  But a red one definitely makes a statement.

But as I’ve become increasingly enamored with all things burgundy, I started to feel like I could make the case for an aubergine leather jacket.  Gradually, it felt like something of a necessity.  And, once it came to live with me, I wondered how I’d lived without it.  Because it’s all the things a black leather jacket is: cool, tough, and iconoclastic.  But it’s also so much more– just “out there” enough to really make a statement.  Even if what you’re wearing underneath is totally, well, boring.  My red leather jacket is making my otherwise ho-hum outfits exciting.  And I, for one, am grateful.
