I have never been a fan of real or faux leather moto jackets on me. I love the cool vibe on other people but the shine accentuates the lack of smoothness on my face and the style just seems too hard for me. I’m more the suede, drapey type. So imagine my surprise to discover a jacket that proves me wrong.

This is faux leather with the softest, buttery texture I’ve ever felt. I just can’t keep my hands off it! It also comes in a spruce type Jasper green and black, but this natural cream is irresistible. I’m a huge fan of the slimming effect you get from asymmetrical seaming, so this jacket tics that box too. jennifer connolly wearing faux leather jacket and pullon jeans with leopard shoes

It has side zip pockets and zippers at the lower sleeve yet still retains its elegance. For a machine-washable jacket,  this one has a lot going for it plus the price is amazing!fashion blogger wearing faux leather jacket, blus jeans, leopard flats standing in front of all

I paired it with pull-on jeggings and my favorite cheetah loafers for a casual day, but it could easily dress up nice pants or a skirt like this for the upcoming holidays. over 50 fashion blogger wearing faux leather jacket, jeans and leopard flats

I love it combined with this lightweight turtleneck. Chico’s shows the neck neatly folded over in half but I prefer mine scrunched. It’s a cotton blend with CoolMax technology so it will keep you warm without overheating. The turtleneck comes in several of my favorite neutrals but I opted for this camel. I’m not sure what it is about camel, but it feels so elegant to me.

This color is not too warm so it will coordinate with lots of other colors. In fact, it’s perfect with my Cheetah loafers. I have worn these shoes more times than I can count and love that I can just refresh them with a quick run through the washing machine.

I skipped earrings and simply added this bronze-toned charm necklace. It has an extender which allowed me to make it long enough to wear over the sweater.

I’ve never been a fan of clothes that require a lot of fussy care so this faux leather really appeals to me.

What have you discovered you could wear that you never thought you would?

    I like it but if I buy another jacket, I have no place to put it. I’m a jacket addict. I like Chicos but if they fit my bust, they can be too wide in the shoulder. But that’s my problem not theirs, Im 5’3″ and weigh 136 but a 38″ bust, it can be a problem.

    I’m not a leather clothing fan either. Actually your comments about the slick shine being unflattering to your skin rings a bell with me. My skin isn’t especially coarse but not smooth enough for shine. Suede, if light and soft ( as in drapey) works well.
    Faux leather is too unbreathable for me. I avoid all synthetics that don’t breathe. The style is ok but for myself I need less boxy, more shaping seams with my slightly hour glass figure or I look boxy all over. Side closures don’t have an especially slenderizing affect on me either. I need a center seam for balance. I love the color of this jacket and how you’re wearing it. …..camel is one of my core colors…love it…, though harder to wear as my hair color is taking in a less blonde and more taupe shade. The camel isn’t as harmonious. Real real bummer!

    Jennifer–
    May I ask about the jacket sizing? Did you opt for Regular or Petite? I’m wondering about length, both sleeve and body.

      I am wearing the 1 regular. I have long arms so I worried the petite would be too short.

      I’m wondering about sizing too! Chico’s website doesn’t seem to give garment measurements which are so helpful. The online comments aren’t very helpful in that regard either. I love the green color and style of jacket. I may have to make the hour drive to try one on in store.

    Do the fake leather jackets peel and crack? I have heard of that happening with well made faux leather jackets.

    I think your jacket is beautiful! I particularly like the zipper on the front. Many times Moto jackets have a lot of “hardware” on the front. This one is so sleek looking.

        I have short arms so moto jackets are not in my closet. Perhaps there is one out there without zippered sleeves. Bummer!

    Luv the entire look on you. I have recently started to wear running shoes with my Jeans. Only for comfort not the look.
    Jennifer, would you please do a tutorial on how you style your hair along with the tools and products you use. I like the longer length on you . Your hair always looks so cute! I have fine hair along with a similar cut. Please show us what you do. Have a great day!

      I will try to put a video together for you. I haven’t had my hair cut for months other than what I can do so it’s really out of shape. In one word, it’s product. Lots of product.

    This is a look that I would absolutely love to imitate! The soft neutrals of the jacket and turtleneck allow you to create a subtle glow with your makeup and hair style. This is a great example of the “no hard lines” rule. I love this look paired with a favorite necklace. I could certainly see those two pieces pairing very well with other pants or a skirt.
    Yes, this jacket would be a step out of my usual and very predictable wardrobe choices. I like it!

    Welcome to the Moto jacket world! You look stunning in that very casual chic outfit. I own about 4 Chico’s Moto-style jackets and love them all. As you said, they are so versatile! I’m loving your sneakers as well. Have a great day!

    I have been anti sneakers for every day use until recent months when I do a lot of walking, hiking. I bought a pair of Saucony PWR run sneakers from a running store and live in them. A light grey, no bright colors for me. Lots of compliments. No more hip problems,
    like walking on pillows. Converted to a sneaker girl.

    I have this jacket and it is gorgeous. However, it has some deep wrinkles that detract from the beauty of it. Do you know of a way to rid or minimize the wrinkles? I have tried placing a towel over the jacket and ironing on low heat and no steam but that did not work. All suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

      I steamed mine from the inside and the outside. That released the few I had. I’m betting they loosen more in the wash.
