Ciara Shops in Helmut Lang Shearling Jersey and Leather Jacket

Ciara was spotted spending some cash at the boutiques on Robertson Boulevard in West Hollywood last weekend.

See how the American singer, songwriter, record producer, dancer, model and actress turned a simple activity like shopping into an interesting photo-op-worthy endeavor just by adding some style.

At first, I was skeptical about a moderately successful singer delving into high fashion, but now I see why Givenchy ultimately chose Ciara to be the face of the brand. She pulls off couture looks with absolute fierceness, and as you can see from these pictures, she does it with casual looks as well.

The jacket Ciara is wearing for this shopping trip is the Helmut Lang shearling jersey and leather jacket.

Interesting use of gray jersey for the body and black leather for the sleeves here. Still, the fact that it’s made of mixed fabrics makes me wonder why it’s priced like a 100% genuine leather jacket.

It’s easier to understand why this similar shearling-lined jacket from UGG Australia is priced at $975 — it’s made of full grain soft shearling, and both the body and the sleeves are made of premium quality leather.

Even this vegan leather jacket is better-priced. It’s $398 for faux leather and faux fur, but it’s got style and a certain sexiness to it.

I’d buy the Helmut Lang jacket, but only if it was on sale. But since we’ve got other jackets that give us better options, I think I’ll go for those other brands in the meantime.
