{Fashion Monday} How to wear a leather jacket 

leather jacket

How to wear a leather jacket is an idea I thought of whilst I was reminiscing about 2016 travels. I can not believe how many places I visited and how many times I took the leather jacket with me. Remember when I went to Oslo and Chilled with Maud? Or when I went to Venice and was Stylish & Comfortable . Both these times I wore my trusted leather jacket from New Look. I have had this leather jacket for over 3 years and it’s still going strong. It has been worn so many times, appeared in so many fashion mood boards and is still serving strong.

How to style a leather jacket 

Pinterest is full of ideas on how to wear a leather jacket wear formal or casual. I am someone who loves to dress casually so majority of my outfit ideas are casual in nature. But with leather jackets I have managed to learn now to dress both formal and informal. If you own a leather jacket then you probably own most of the accompaniments too. Check your closet, you probably won’t need to buy anything new just repurpose what you have. When I have two wear leather jackets it’s mostly involve two occasions; date night or day out.

Date Night

Valentine’s Day is coming up and you might want to spruce up for it for your date night. Wear with a dress and  pair with some killer heels or blocked heels. Have your hair down, minimal jewelry and finish off with a clutch purse. Date night is not only with boo but with girl friends on a night out.

Day out

If you’re a busy body like me always out exploring the world, leather jackets can be your friend. Pair with skinny jeans, canvas or boots, a nice top and backpack. This is usually my normal travel outfit whether I am heading abroad or just traveling to my parents.

And that’s how to wear a leather jacket, easy peasy with no fuss. The outfits are comfortable and stylish and fit for purpose.

    I don’t know how long it’s been since I work anything that was leather. You look great in it though. I like other people how they wear different things I think it looks better on them then it would me.

  37. January 16, 2017 / 4:49 pm

    I’m not a fan of leather jackets I don’t like how they sit on me and they make me feel over heated. I like how they look on others but they are a fashion no for me x

  38. January 16, 2017 / 4:09 pm

    Leather jacket can really be timeless. It can be cool and elegant at the same time.
