How to Style a Leather Jacket

  1. Pair It With a Dress and Sneakers

This combo results in a cute yet grungy look. Sneakers and a dress are the perfect date night ensemble. No matter whether you have a mid-length or short dress, throwing a leather jacket over the top will look sophisticated and chic.

If your leather jacket is black or white, keep the rest of your outfit monochrome. You’ll feel like a Parisian during fashion week.   

  1. Throw On a Pair of Jeans

This look is a classic! We’ve seen it in Hollywood since leather jackets were invented. Luckily for us, anyone can adopt this trend easily and affordably.

If you’re out on a date, would you dare to consider both wearing leather jackets and blue jeans? Dress this look down with sneakers. Alternatively, choose to add heeled boots for a fashionista touch.

  1. Add a Cinch Belt

An oversized leather jacket is very cool! But, sometimes you want to change your silhouette. To do this, try adding a belt. It could be one you already own or you might prefer to buy one in matching leather.

By cinching in the waist, you’re creating an entirely different look. This styling tip works best with a pair of tight trousers.

  1. Dress It Up With a Pencil Skirt

If you’re heading into work, there’s no reason you can’t take your leather jacket with you! Simply pull on your pencil skirt and heels and you’ve got a new look. This outfit screams I’m ready for business, but I’m also really cool.

You’ll have no trouble transforming from day to night with this outfit. Just add some red lipstick and more mascara and you’re ready for drinks with your friends!

 

  1. Pair Leather With Leather

Are you bold enough to wear a leather jacket with leather trousers? If so, hold your head high and walk confidently! 

The leather on leather look is one that will get many heads turning. You don’t necessarily have to wear leather shoes, sneakers will also look great.
