Leather armed jackets are all the fashion world is talking about. Stores from Urban Outfitters to Roberto Cavalli are releasing jackets with leather arms.
Why this trend is so huge
These jackets are so popular because they are a twist on the typical jacket. They add a bit of edge, whether the main part of your jacket is a solid fabric or denim. In particular, these jackets (with denim and leather) look especially good with printed pants. Leather in any form is a sign of winter, so I think designers wanted to shake things up and incorporate leather in a different way than expected. In addition to being edgy, these jackets are also very military like, which was/is a trend for Fall 2012. Expect to see these jackets at Urban Outfitters, Forever 21, Roberto Cavalli, J Brand, Nordstrom, and other retailers.
