A Fashion & Style Essential
A must-own staple in every woman’s closet, the humble leather jacket is a versatile piece that transcends seasons and fashion trends. Faux, coloured, oversized – leather jackets come in a variation of shapes and sizes. With autumn in full swing and winter just around the corner, here are 5 ways to incorporate leather jackets into your daily wear, no matter what your fashion style.
1. Back in Black
Bored with your all black ensemble? Break it up with a variety of textures. A slick of smooth leather will add a deeper dimension to your outfit. Keeping it monochromatic will create an effortless, put together fashion style.
2. Backstage Pass
Leather jackets and grunge go hand in hand. It’s a fail-safe combo that has lasted because it works. A vintage tee, distressed denim, avatar sunglasses and a worn leather jacket will immediately give you that ‘cool girl’ style. Nothing says “I’m with the band” more.
3. With an edge
It’s the perfect mix of feminine and punk – patterned, flirty dresses or skirts with a cropped black leather jacket thrown on top. It’ll give your girly look a bit of edge. Let your summer dress have its last hurrah and chuck on a pair of tights for added warmth. And of course, a pair of Docs to finish the look.
4. Beary Warm
Keep it cosy this autumn and style your jacket with warmer fashion pieces. Pull out your oversized leather jacket and layer neutral toned chunky knits underneath. You might even be able to fit a cheeky thermal or two under there too!
5. Not Your Average
It’s not just about the classic black leather biker jacket. These bad boys come in various lengths and colours. Statement trench coats can brighten any outfit, and coloured jackets will do the same. Wanting to dip your toes into the fashion water? Try an olive, maroon or brown piece to get you started. They’re easy to style, fashionable to wear.
