Leather jackets: a staple item in every woman’s closet that never goes out of style. Every lady has their own tried and true leather jacket outfit that they can always rely on. However today, I am going to teach you a few different ways you can style your trusty jacket to mix it up a little! Feel free to throw your own twist on these outfit combinations, I know jackets are made in an array of colors now like brown, white, gray, and of course classic black. And for the animal lover, leather jackets can easily be found in a material that is not actually leather, but lives up to the quality. Let’s get started with your guide to wearing a leather jacket!

Add Bright Statement Pieces

Chunky, colorful jewelry adds a pop of color and a feminine vibe. A hot pink necklace could balance out the rebellious tone that comes with a leather jacket by providing a girly touch. Even bright yellow heels could pull the whole outfit together! Experiment with different colors, fabrics, and accessories with your leather jacket.

If your style really isn’t very girly, embrace the coolness of a leather jacket. Go all in by pairing your black jacket with black jeans and shoes as well. Add a little bit of dimension by wearing a neutral basic shirt under the jacket. This outfit will give off a “don’t mess with me” vibe and give you the confidence to take charge of your day!

Leather jackets can be worn in a similar fashion to a cardigan. Layer over a dress or skirt when it’s chilly outside to add some warmth, as well as detail and softness to the outfit. This outfit can be professional enough to wear to work or a meeting, while allowing you to stand out!

Choose Athleisure

Nowadays, athleisure, athletic but stylish outfits, are all the rage. Your leather jacket can definitely be styled for a trip to the grocery store then directly to the gym. Wear some movable leggings and sneakers with a tee underneath to achieve this lady on-the-go outfit!

Layer With A Scarf

Transition your leather jacket from fall to winter with a warm scarf. A plaid print is a great choice, it adds some pattern while completing the look. A knit sweater material is also a popular addition because it can keep you super warm as well as balancing the shiny, harsh material of the jacket with a soft, movable texture.

Maybe some fringe hanging from the arms would express your wild child personality! Maybe you want unique studs or rhinestones to show off your love of glam. Or, go big with an outrageous color jacket like pink! Have fun with it!
