Every wardrobe requires a few essential items that can see you through any occasion and any season. From jackets and dresses to shorts and trousers; shopping well is often about shopping smart and knowing how to work what’s in your wardrobe. For a few fresh ideas on how to rock both the latest trends and timeless styles read on and see what looks we love and how we like to wear them for the leather jacket.
We love a leather jacket all year round. It’s the perfect style for trans-seasonal styling when you’re not quite sure what the weather’s doing, and let’s face it, that’s pretty much all the time.
Whether it’s a cool rock chick look you’re going for or a light layer on a night out, the leather jacket can make any outfit just that bit edgier.
Here are 5 ways we’d be wearing our leather jackets this season:
Parisian Chic – Let’s be honest, the Parisians know how to wear and style clothing; from chic black masculine looks to feminine dresses and skirts, they’ve mastered the art of cool understated style. For a look that can transport you in a second pair a black skinny jean, striped tee and black ankle boots together – finish the look off with a cool leather jacket and bold red lip.
Sports Luxe – Ever have those days where you want to look cool but most of all, just be completely comfortable in your outfit? The sports luxe look is for you then. Throw on a simple pair of black leggings, a plain white tee and slip on sneakers and you are good to go for whatever the day may bring – adding an edgy leather jacket to this look gives it some street cred and means you don’t feel like you just rolled out of the gym.
Weekend Casual – Most leather jackets are a standard black… and we all love black! But we also love the idea of mixing this look up and giving it a fresh new take. Try a jacket in a new hue also like a super cute pale pink colour, creating a more feminine look that can transfer to casual weekends and nights on the town. For a strong yet girly casual look pair a light pink or blue jacket with a paisley top and khaki trouser, you’d be amazed how well these colours go together and the paisley print draws the eye perfectly.
Going Out – Finding the right look for a night out can be tricky; pulling off a new look without having to buy a whole new wardrobe every time you and the girls feel like a get together is the key here. For a look that transfers to night try a structured dress, statement heels and leather jacket – don’t be afraid to go super girly with your shoes or dress as the leather really balances this look out.
Desk to Drinks – Leather is rarely the first choice when considering office appropriate outfits however, there isn’t always time to go home and change before a quick drink with the girls, or the boy for that matter. Adding a leather jacket to an office look can transform it within seconds, by ensuring you have the right co-ordinates underneath it can totally work for work too. For a look that can really transcend occasion dressing wear a tapered black pant or pencil skirt, simple pointed heel and white button shirt for work –add a leather jacket to get you to and from and a statement necklace to glam this look up.
