Rough Around The Edges

by The Zoe Report

For the fashion-inclined, springtime usually conjures up thoughts of frilly florals, delicate fabrics and a lot of color, but I always like to toss some tougher elements in the mix. The contrasting effect of Simone‘s Black Spike Leather Jacket over a pale pink dress or lace white top and denim shorts is definitely a look to play with.

After weighing out Simone’s spring collection of Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, party-ready silhouettes—I have landed on this coolly out of place jacket. A studded treasure, it is adorned with silver spikes on the shoulders and lapels for some serious bad-to-the-bone style. You can, of course, stick with a more traditional black leather jacket to give your outfit a similar attitude—any BLJ will transition you through the seasons and stand the test of time—but why not raise the stakes? xoRZ
