A leather jacket is the perfect middle ground between a bomber and a winter coat. It still keeps your warm but is the ultimate timeless statement to add some edge to your outfits. Some people think it’s too strong of a choice for them, but there are tons of way to rock leather outerwear. Here are our favorites.
1. This is our all time favorite leather look. Pair a cropped jacket with a crop top and joggers rolled up at the ankle (preferably leather, because how cool is this outfit?) and finish it with a high, slicked back ponytail. All black never fails.
2. Some people think leather and animal print and run for the hills. However, this look is anything but tacky, and is appropriate for both the office and happy hour. Cropped, smartly fitted leopard tailors pair with a pointy toed slingback in this short leather jacket look. Pair with a simple white tee so that things don’t start clashing too much.
3. Leather jackets look so cool with ripped jeans and a graphic tee. This is a classic casual look that will never get tired. Especially if you pair it with a cute pair of Doc Martens.
4. A leather jacket can be turned into formal wear without being overly edgy. Try pairing it unbuttoned or unzipped with a frilled dress and a wide waist belt.
5. Colored leather is a fun addition to any ensemble, but it should remain the focus piece. Keep it sleek but sassy by pairing it with a black bandeau top, light washed jeans and high heeled sandals.
6. Fringed leather jackets are so cool and give that laid back 70s vibe, while adding movement to an outfit. Pair with bellbottom jeans, an off white collared blouse and tight, animal print boots.
7. Patchwork and leather in the same sentence might have you thinking of your grandma’s closet, but there are plenty of modernized ways to rock it. For instance, take this belted, short sleeved patchwork jacket that creatively uses color blocking, paired with slouchy thigh high boots.
8. An effortless European way to rock a leather jacket in a casual yet professional manner. Pair with tailored black trousers with a front pleat and a cashmere or loosely knit v-necked sweater, completed with a “French tuck” in the fort of the pants.
9. If you have a leather blazer, it might seem intimidating, but it can look incredibly high fashion with the best accessories. Try with an all white, high necked dress with a side slit, and some geometric, attention-grabbing heeled sandals. Don’t forget the tinted Leo DiCaprio shades.
