Here comes one of my underrated favourites: the brown leather jacket. I got mine pretty late and needed the help of my dear friend Liz to get it to Germany because I couldn’t find a single seller who was willing to ship abroad.
This is another item that can be found easily. Just to see if it was still the case, I opened my Depop app and searched for “River Island brown leather” and found no less than four results in a minute. The jacket originally comes with a dark brown, detachable fur collar. I would show it to you, but I received mine without it. I have also seen a few of those on eBay.
Current prices range is between £25 and £30, but I’ve seen them go as low as £15 and I think that is a price range suitable for a second-hand faux leather jacket. I’ve seen it in different sizes, so if you’re determined to get one of those, you’ll find the right match sooner or later. It is made from 100% polyurethane and the lining is 100% polyester. This jacket is hand wash only.
The jacket runs true to size to a little big and the UK6 fits me fine even though I sometimes struggle with the shoulders in small jackets. However, if you’ve got a bigger cup size, I’d suggest going for your regular size in jackets instead of sizing down because it might be a little tight otherwise.
I really love this jacket and I think the earthy colour goes so well with the orange Shalex blouse. Clara simply rocks this outfit. As soon as I received it, the jacket quickly became part of my everyday wardrobe because it’s casual, keeps a bit of rain off and is a nice change from the regular black leather jacket. I’m kind of sad Clara didn’t wear it more often. Your everyday wardrobe will likely benefit from this jacket a lot. Personally, I love to wear mine a lot.
