What do you get when you cross the ladies of Fab Four Fashion with the stylish pieces offered by Wilsons Leather? You get high octane style! The ladies put the pedal to the metal with their favourite pieces from Wilsons Leather and created gorgeous looks that will get your motor running! See how they revved things up with these oh so hot looks!
When Wilsons Leather agreed to do a collabo with Fab Four Fashion I was more than ecstatic, I couldn’t believe it! I had been perusing through their website ever since Gail introduced us to them. Let me tell you, they have a great selection of leather, faux leather, suede and faux fur coats. Most importantly, they understand that straight size and plus size women alike love to splurge on fine leather pieces.
When perusing the sight one day my eyes were immediately drawn to this awesome moto style jacket; the type of jacket that makes you want to go out and buy a motorcycle. I must admit that I was a bit skeptical about getting this particular jacket. My main concern being fit and the ever-present question: will I be able to zip it up completely without looking all trapped in it, and will it look too big on me. Before ordering I made sure to refer to the size guide, and even went so far as to have a quick chat with a lovely agent via the live chat feature on their website.
Well imagine my delight and surprise when I received the jacket and it fit me perfectly. I am able to zip it up completely and I don’t feel imprisoned in it. When I read the comments left on the Wilsons Leather site regarding this jacket some people stated that the jacket was a bit heavy with the lining. Yes, I would agree with that statement, but, chile, I just took out the lining inside and I got my life! LOL The quality of the genuine leather is astonishing, and I was quite impressed with all the details of the jacket. Allow me to highlight a few that I love most:
1- I just love the silver zippers all over the jacket. On each side at the bottom you will noticed that there are leather cords that lace up, so if you want the jacket to be more cinched to your waist you can tie the leather cords more tightly.
2 – There is a built-in leather belt at the bottom of the jacket that gives it an “I’m bad and I know it” kind of look.
3 – If you love pockets well you will certainly be pleased. I have never owned a jacket with so many pockets, it’s like a secret hideaway jacket! Every time I look at it I discover another pocket!
For this look, I wanted to go for a Madonna circa 1980’s “Papa Don’t Preach” style!LOL I wore my tutu skirt with a simple white tank top, added a funky silver necklace and some bracelets. The finishing touch was my snakeskin black and blue Betsey Johnson pumps.
I’m ready to be a rider!LOL Mind you, I have been saying that I want to get my motorcycle license, maybe now that I have the perfect leather coat I will go ahead and get it. Come on now, I know you guys can picture me looking all cute on my sexy sporty motorcycle with my hot leather jacket!
This week’s post is near and dear to my heart. Why? Because this is how you will catch me looking 90% of the time. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about getting dolled up and like to play with various silhouettes and pieces, but jeans, a tee and a leather jackets? That’s definitely my go to. As a mom on the go, this “uniform” is the best way to look polished while being super comfortable.
This jacket here stole my heart as soon as I saw it. The good folks over at La Marque are quite ingenious: there are discreet hooks on the jacket’s lapel which allow you to wear it in a couple of different ways. You can wear it closed for a cowl neck look. You can hook it on one side only and of course, you can never go wrong with simply leaving it open. The light weight genuine leather allows for these variations while still keeping the comfort level on high! The asymmetric hem guarantees an interesting look regardless of how you choose to wear it.
Tall girls, let’s talk for a second. While I love everything about this jacket, we have to be creative when it comes to the sleeve length. The angled cuff sleeves are a bit on the short side for us. There is a knit sleeve underside with tons of stretch which allows you to easily push up the sleeves for a nice laid back look (disclaimer: even if the sleeve length was the right length, I would probably push up the sleeves anyway LOL. I just love that look better).
I wanted to make the look casual chic; therefore, I paired my jacket with gray jeggings and a tee with blue pumps to kick things up a notch. Since this jacket has a loose fit with a fun cascading neckline, it can easily be paired with a killer pencil skirt and would look just as awesome with some hot high waisted trousers. So all in all, this is a great piece that can net you a ton of wears.
You thought Wilsons Leather only did leather goods didn’t cha? Well think again baby! Allow me to introduce you to my alter ego; I call her Luela Deville. She likes long walks in Yorkville (the Toronto equivalent to New York’s Fifth Avenue); pink champagne with dinner and a little soulful house music just because she likes a hot beat! But more importantly, she loves anything that speaks of luxury and this coat courtesy of Wilsons Leather fits the bill!
Styled with your favourite distressed jeans or glam rock leather, this coat will bring out the rock star in anyone. I simply LOVE anything in a leopard print, so when I happened across this coat on the Wilsons Leather site my heart skipped a beat! This coat is the embodiment of my love of retro styles from the silver screen classics era and my fever for the flavah of a leopard print! The relaxed, boxy modish design speaks to the diva in me and can easily take a look from simple jeans and a tee to edgy, glam rock! The faux fur feels so soft and the three –quarter sleeves lends to that vintage vibe.
For this look, I wanted this gorgeous coat to take centre stage. I opted to pair it with all black everything. A simple black turtleneck sweater and faux leather shorts formed the foundation, with my thigh-high suede over the knee boots and bing-bam-boom, I was ready for my Rolling Stone Magazine interview!
I wanted to be funky with the accessories, so I went for these two black and gold necklaces that add some visual interest to the black turtleneck. Ladies and gents, Luella Deville is in the house and ready to rock and roll!
Born to be wwwwwiiiillllllddddd….that’s the song that was running through my head when I laid eyes on this Wilsons Leather moto jacket. I felt like a femme fatale about to jump on my Harley Davidson and head out on the open road.
Wilsons Leather is not a new company to me. I first purchased one of their jackets and wore it in our Fall Lookbook 2 looks seen here and loved that they offered jackets for straight and plus sizes-something that Fab Four Fashion is all about….fashion democracy!
This gorgeous leather jacket is just beyond gorgeous. The jacket is made of Milwaukee leather with croc embossed accents. It’s got a tonne of pockets so you can stash away your things and a handy dandy zip out liner.
What I love most about this jacket is you can dress it up or down. For this look I was going for a cover of Rolling Stones magazine – glam rock look (note the theme in this post…Rolling Stone magazine we want an interview son LOL)! I also wanted to play with the idea of masculine / feminine in this look as well.
I paired this centre zip moto jacket with a lace top and a crop top underneath. This is where I married the masculine edginess of the jacket with the soft femininity and sexiness of the lace top.
To continue playing on this masculine-feminine theme I wore acid wash skinny jeans to further up the sexiness quotient. Now if I wanted to dress up this hot little jacket I would swap out the lace top and jeans and go for a hot bodycon dress and heels! Oh chile, the world would not be ready!
