Tips on how to style a leather jacket

As we will be entering the spring season in the next few weeks I thought I would write about one of my favourite items to wear during the spring time, leather jackets.

Leather jackets are definitely one of the most versatile pieces of clothing that your wardrobe can own. Its serves its functionality purpose of keeping you nice and cosy while always being the piece to bring the edginess to your overall look. In all honesty I used to be super nervous about wearing a leather jacket, I wanted to wear one but also didn’t want to lose my style in one either. Overall the goal was to integrate the leather jacket to fit my aesthetic, this is where experimenting became important. 

I spent countless hours on Pinterest browsing how other people styled their leather jacket, trying to gain an insight into how I could mesh it with my style. After many trials and errors I have compiled key tips that I think will be helpful to you all when making the leather jacket the forefront of your wardrobe and style for the spring.

My first tip would be to style your leather jacket with a killer pair of black boots or sneakers. This easily transitions the leather jacket into a more day-to-day look while also elevating your personal style. In the picture here I have styled my leather jacket with my Office Lucky Charm studded boots which are my new favourite boots. I also style this jacket equally with my navy blue Chuck Taylor lo sneakers. Again both of these are comfortable options that will complement the rest of the outfit.

Another tip that I have is style your leather jacket with a dark wash styled jean. This is personally my go to styling tip because I think it brings a more grungy vibe to your look which is still a very current and popular trend that I can't see leaving the runways anytime soon. The jeans in the picture above are from H&M are so comfortable and definitely are one of my favourite pairs of jeans.

My last tip would to have fun while styling. Don’t be afraid to experiment with your style. After all that is truly what fashion is all about. These tips are just for people that need a starting point and want to take some inspiration but are not the only ways to style a leather jacket. Your options are endless and I encourage you all to style it the way you want to. I would love to know in the comments down below how you style your leather jacket.
