Leather jacket, monochrome dress & biker chic

Biker Jacket

What? Wearing leather jackets in hot, humid Singapore? Are you mad? Well, no actually. I think it’s perfectly fine to wear them indoors, especially when the weather is all wet and cold. Anyway, I can wear my leather jacket to work but I’ve decided to keep it as a weekend gear instead. I mean, there has to come a point where I don’t look like I’m going to work every day right?

Although I can wear my leather jacket with just about any outfit, I like it best when worn over dresses with a touch of feminine rocker chic. In fact, I’m so loving this monochrome combination! A pair of boots would be nice but I haven’t found a pair that’s comfortable enough for my feet to walk a mile with no pain.

Monochrome fashion

Yeah, this is my first leather jacket acquisition from ASOS. It’s very fitting and I think I might consider getting another one soon. Maybe a stud biker jacket next! I’m eyeing one from River Island, which comes in the price range I can afford.

Checkered dress

The monochrome diamond print skater dress is also from ASOS. The Marc by Marc Jacobs Revolution Zip Tote is from Shopbop. I can’t remember where I got the shoes now but it’s definitely local. And oh, my 10-year-old son shot these pics for me…he’s now my official fashion photographer! LOL.

So ladies, do you like leather jackets?

    Nice outfit, Sesame and your son is a budding photographer! Good job ? I love leather jackets but have yet to bite the bullet and get one because as you say, the weather and all and I don’t hang out enough in cool areas to warrant it but still, its always been a desire to own one so maybe soon ?

    I have the same problem living in humid FL but I refuse to stop wearing my leather jackets. I just love them. This is such a pretty outfit. I absolutely love your wonderful dress.

    Very nice Sesame. I have been wanting to add leather to my wardrobe too, but I just think there would be too few opportunities for a jacket. When I see the right a-line leather skirt though, I will pounce!

    I love this! I like pairing casual jackets with feminine clothes, too. ?
    Currently, I’m actually looking for an army-green oversized jacket to pair with some of my dresses.

    Have you checked out boots from Steve Madden? I got a pair last year and it’s pretty comfortable and tough. I like it a lot, actually. I walked for more than an hour and it didn’t hurt my feet and my ankle joints. I’ll post one photo on Instagram now. :p

    Thanks Paris! It’s actually quite affordable from ASOS. ?

  7. Sesame says:

    It’s humid in FL? But thanks for your compliments. ?

    Thanks Audreiana. ?

  9. Sesame says:

    Thanks Sylvia! Well, if you’re constantly in an aircon environment, it’s fine as long as you feel comfortable in it. Anyway, leather jackets are very acceptable in my circle and that probably explains why I’m also comfortable wearing it. ?

  10. Sesame says:

    Thanks Vivi! And I will keep the brand in mind when I’m shopping for boots. I just have a problem with shoes that cover my toes cos I have broad feet. Btw, the boots look good on you!

    Lovely look Sesame! I love the dress…..and paired with the leather! Vavavooom! Surely hubby approves of THIS one no? Must check out ASOS, though I don’t think they carry plus sizes?

  12. Aylwin says:

    Your bag looks scary & it completes the look.

    You look as if you’re going to hit someone with your bag… ?

  13. Sesame says:

    He’s okay with this. ? You can check out the store…I think they have larger sizes.

  14. Sesame says:

    Haha…good idea! But yeah, I carry too many stuff. ?

  15. MyNewyorkBag says:

    Wow!! Attractive outfit. Really this is a nice combination. Your dress enhances the pretty look. Love this leather jacket.

    You look great! I never wear leather jackets, they look horrible on me.
    But I do like them, on somebody else.

    The leather style fits you very well indeed. I must say that in Canada, we do have plenty of occasions to wear this kind of jacket!

    Oh yes, you’re fortunate to have more choices in your clothing because of the weather.
