Leather jackets have earned their “must-have” status in our fashion minds. There are endless possibilities when you own a leather jacket ( make it vegan if you love both the planet and our little furry friends).
As a stylist for Please Don’t Tell, I love leather jackets because you can use them as a way to tone down a really formal dress or skirt, or dress up the simplest look: A white t-shirt and a pair of jeans!
I know, leather jackets are a little more expensive than what we are used to pay for in the age of fast fashion, but given that it’s such a classic, I’m really surprised and a bit saddened that so many of my customers don’t own one or two!
Below, are my 5 favorite ways to wear a leather jacket.
I personally have only one leather, and 2 vegan, one in toffee and 2 in black. The black one is a classic blazer style fit, and the second is a rocker fit with lots of fake pins:
1. The classic way: Rocker Chic
You got edge but you don’t drive a Harley, this look is for you. Rude, strong and a total bad ass! I personally love this leather jacket with pins, it adds a little humor to the rude girl style. Pair it with rocker boots, and a graphic tee. I love The Laundry Room “work for coffee tee” for the same reason I love the pins of the jacket, it adds a touch of fun to a look that can look gothic and a bit aggressive if done wrong. Jeans, shoes and jacket are my own, t-shirt is from Please Don’t Tell.
