Finding the perfect leather jacket can be quite the challenge — the fit and the price have to be just right. In comes Veda to the rescue: the brand, first conceived in 2008 by Lyndsey Butler, not only offers edgy chic leather jackets, but also delivers them at an affordable price point. Veda designer Lyndsey grew up splitting her time between Texas and Argentina and quickly developed a love for sumptuous, rocker-cool leather goods. After graduating from NYU, Lyndsey followed her fashion dreams by launching Veda, a line of super chic, amazingly innovative leather jackets ranging from classically cool to fresh, slightly offbeat designs. For Veda's Spring '12 collection, Lyndsey mixed things up even further by serving up architectural, sculpted leather tank tops, hot shorts, and floaty, boho-chic tops and dresses. We caught up with Lyndsey to talk Veda's Spring pieces, her personal style icons, and tips on finding the perfect leather jacket.
