Leather Up To Look Casual Chic

Leather is a hot trend and an old classic.  With the right leather jacket, you look polished and pulled together, and it's so versatile, taking you from the office to a night out and through the weekend.  Forever stylish and age appropriate, leather dresses up just about everything in your closet from blue jeans to the little black dress.

And now more than ever, leather is an affordable luxury.  Not only can you find it in the perennial, popular black; but it comes in a full array of new colors, styles and lengths.

Two retailers offering lots of adorable options at a steal are Newport News and Sears.  How do they do it?

Newport News has taken the details of its charming boyfriend blazer and given it a more fitted, feminine silhouette.  The result is beyond cute.  Wear it to either dress up or down.  You can even roll up the sleeves.  The new "girlfriend blazer" sells for $139, but with coupon codes, you can get it for under $100.

But that's not all.  Newport News has other leather wear, including ¾ length trenches, shorter jackets with scalloped necklines or ruffles, blazers with a cascade of pleats down the front, plus diamond-quilted patterns.  You will find suede, fringed and metallic blouson leather jackets also.

And if that's not enough of a selection, Sear'sLeather Connection has more than 75 new styles for men and women.  From the smoothest nappa leather jackets to the rich look of ¾ length shearling coats, get the ultimate in quality and cool design at very affordable prices.

Leather is truly a wardrobe essential that won't go out-of-style.  At these values -- whether it's edgy and modern, or feminine and classic -- everyone can find a flattering look.
